Charge conjugation and internal space-time symmetries

  • M. Pavšič
  • E. Recami


We adopt the relativistic framework in which fundamental particles are regarded as extended objects. Then, we show that the (geometrical) operation which reflects theinternal space-time of a particle is equivalent to the operationC which invertes the sign of all its additive charges.
