Abstract

We consider a P-odd variant of a spin-3/2 particle theory in the matrix formulation. We determine a matrix algebra of a first-order equation. We find solutions of the free equation for a massive particle in the form of projection matrices-dyads. We obtain exact solutions of the equation in the case of an external plane wave field with linear polarization and in the case of an axially symmetric magnetic field.
