Abstract It is proven that the axioms of field theory are not compatible with a different assignment of (anti-)commutation relations to a field and its Hermitian conjugate. As a corollary it is shown that, if one wants to require that a field ψ(x) either commutes or anticommutes with itself at space-like distances, one is forced to choose commutation relations if ψ transforms according to a single-valued irreducible representation of the Lorentz group; anticommutation relations if ψ transforms… CONTINUE READING
