Sample text

We won’t use this language in this book, but it is important to be aware of this notation because many SUSY references use it. By the way, even though the algebra acting on the Weyl spinors is su(2) × su(2), the group under which they transform is not SU (2) × SU (2) but instead S L(2, C), the universal covering group of the Lorentz group S O(3, 1). This might be useful to know if you want to impress your friends. , the four-momentum P μ . 33) Now, let us ask: What Lorentz-invariant quantity can we build out of spinors?

To see why this helps, consider the Lorentz transformation of the quantity iσ 2 χ L (the inclusion of a factor of i is purely conventional but convenient when we relate particle and antiparticle states, as we will see in Chapter 4): iσ 2 χ †T → iσ 2 χ †T L L = (iσ 2 )∗ 1+ = iσ 2 1 − = 1+ 1 i ·σ + β ·σ 2 2 ∗ χ †T L 1 i · σ ∗ + β · σ ∗ χ †T L 2 2 i 1 · σ − β · σ iσ 2 χ †T L 2 2 which is the transformation of a right-chiral spinor! We have therefore built something that transforms like a right-chiral spinor out of a left-chiral spinor.

15) In this book we will use capital Greek letters for four-component spinors and lowercase Greek letters for two-component spinors. There is no standard notation for the symbols used for the upper and lower two-component spinors; some authors switch the η and the χ or use different Greek letters altogether. Supersymmetry Demystified 18 The two-component spinors appearing in Eq. 15) are called Weyl spinors. , they do not mix. The technical way to express this is to say that a Dirac spinor forms a reducible representation of the Lorentz group, whereas Weyl spinors form irreducible representations.
