Theories and Lagrangians I: Matter Fields

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 839)


Up to this point we have used a scalar field to illustrate our discussion of the quantization procedure. However, Nature is richer than that and it is necessary to consider other fields with more complicated behavior under Lorentz transformations. Before considering these other fields we pause and study the properties of the Lorentz group.
