Group Representations and Quantum Mechanics
The purpose of this chapter is to elucidate one particular point in the application of group theory to quantum mechanics, namely the occurrence of double-valued or spin representations of the rotation and Lorentz groups.
KeywordsRay space and ray representations in quantum mechanics extensions of local representations effect of double connectedness of SO(3) and simple connectedness of SU(2) double-valued representations spinors
