Spin-Statistics , Spin-Locality , and TCP : Three Distinct Theorems

  title={Spin-Statistics , Spin-Locality , and TCP : Three Distinct Theorems},
  author={Oscar W. Greenberg},
I show that the spin-statistics theorem has been confused with another theorem that I call the spin-locality theorem. I also argue that the spin-statistics theorem properly depends on the properties of asymptotic fields which are free fields. In addition, I discuss how ghosts evade both theorems, give the basis of the spin-statistics theorem for fields without asymptotic limits such as quark and gluon fields, and emphasise the weakness of the requirements for the TCP theorem. q 1998 Elsevier… CONTINUE READING
