Lie Group Theory

Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics book series (ULNP)


The final goal of this chapter is the derivation of the fundamental representations of the double cover of the Poincare group, which is assumed to be the fundamental symmetry group of spacetime. These fundamental representations are the tools needed to describe all elementary particles, each representation for a different kind of elementary particle. The representations will tell us what types of elementary particles exist in nature.
