Parafermions of orders 2 and 3 are shown to be the fundamental tool to construct superspaces related to cubic and quartic extensions of the Poincaré algebra. The corresponding superfields are constructed, and some of their main properties are analyzed in detail. In this context, the existence problem of operators acting like covariant derivatives is analyzed, and the associated operators are explicitly constructed. 


Cubic extensions of the Poincare algebra can be constructed in consistency with physical assumptions, and provide new insights for the description of phenomena. In this paper we review some recent

Parafermions, ternary algebras and their associated superspace

Parafermions of order two are shown to be the fundamental tool to construct ternary superspaces related to cubic extensions of the Poincar\'e algebra

Unexpected features of supersymmetry with central charges

It is shown that N = 2 supersymmetric theories with central charges present some hidden quartic symmetry. This enables us to construct the representations of the quartic structure induced by

n-ary algebras: a review with applications

This paper reviews the properties and applications of certain n-ary generalizations of Lie algebras in a self-contained and unified way. These generalizations are algebraic structures in which the

Hidden quartic symmetry in N = 2 supersymmetry

It is shown that for N = 2 supersymmetry a hidden symmetry arises from the hybrid structure of a quartic algebra. The implications for invariant Lagrangians and multiplets are explored.

A Preon Model from Manasson ' s Theory

V. Manasson has applied dissipative chaos theory to particle physics, deriving a simple relation between the fine structure constant and Feigenbaum delta constant. It is presented a preon model based

The partially alternating ternary sum in an associative dialgebra

The alternating ternary sum in an associative algebra, gives rise to the partially alternating ternary sum in an associative dialgebra with products ⊣ and ⊢ by making the argument a the center of



Irreducible representations of the extended Poincaré parasuperalgebra

We classify and explicitly construct all the irreducible hermitian representations of the extended Poincar?parasuperalgebra. These representations which include the representations of the usual

Non-trivial extension of the Poincar\'e algebra for antisymmetric gauge fields

We investigate a non-trivial extension of the $D-$dimensional Poincar\'e algebra. Matrix representations are obtained. The bosonic multiplets contain antisymmetric tensor fields. It turns out that


Supersymmetric (pseudoclassical) mechanics has recently been generalized to fractional supersymmetric mechanics. In such a construction, the action is invariant under fractional supersymmetry

Poincaré and sl(2) algebras of order 3

In this paper, we initiate a general classification for Lie algebras of order 3 and we give all Lie algebras of order 3 based on sl(2,C) and iso(1, 3) the Poincare algebra in four dimensions. We then

Para‐Bose and para‐Fermi operators as generators of orthosymplectic Lie superalgebras

It is shown that the relative commutation relations between n pairs of para‐Fermi operators and m pairs of para‐Bose operators can be defined in such a way that they generate the simple


The existence of intimate relations between generalized statistics and supersymmetry is established by the observation of hidden supersymmetric structure in pure parabosonic systems. This structure

Supersymmetry of parafermions

We show that the single-mode parafermionic type systems possess supersymmetry, which is based on the symmetry of characteristic functions of the parafermions related to the generalized deformed

Z3 ‐graded algebras and the cubic root of the supersymmetry translations

A generalization of supersymmetry is proposed based on Z3 ‐graded algebras. Introducing the objects whose ternary commutation relations contain the cubic roots of unity, e2πi/3, e4πi/3 and 1, the
