@inproceedings{Khler2015OnTL, title={On the localization properties of quantum fields with zero mass and infinite spin}, author={Christian K{\"o}hler}, year={2015} }

Unendlicher Spin bei verschwindender Masse tritt zusammen mit den bekannten Spin- und Helizitatsdarstellungen in Wigners Klassifikation der irreduziblen Darstellungen der Poincare-Gruppe auf; im Gegensatz zu Letzteren sind diese jedoch bekannt dafur mit punktartiger Lokalisierung im Sinne von Wightmanfeldern inkompatibel zu sein. Andererseits hat die Konstruktion stringlokalisierter Felder nach Mund, Schroer und Yngvason, welche insbesondere auf den Fall unendlichen Spins angewendet werden kann…
