11. A 3 dimensional gauge theory

Hi again no i mean in 1+2 space yes i know that the dual of a k vector is N-k. But am applying it to N= 2+1 space, i am wondering if the dual of the field strength which is a 1 form is the same as the gauge field since both are 1 form in this special 1+2 space. Thank you again

37. Susy algebra trivial question

Sorry for replying several time but i think i just find the answer in David Bailin and Alexander Love book (1 st edition) page 27. It is noted that if we have Q _alpha ^A; alpha spinor index; while the A labeled some internal symmetry if the Q; A=1...N;. So A labeles the representation of the...
38. Susy algebra trivial question

I just want to know the exact meaning of the N, is there is an internal group for the Q's , or should it be related to G. Thank you alot
39. Susy algebra trivial question

Thank you haushofer. In fact i was wondering if this number N is related to the internal group G ( We have said that the maximum symmetry of the S matrix is P*G since they commute) which i can later introduce. I thought that this N must be equal to the dimension of G. Thank you haushofer alot.
40. Susy algebra trivial question

Dear All Am trying to study supersymmetry algebra. We start by constructing the graded poincare algebra by considering the direct sum of the ordinary Poincare algebra L0 with a subspace L1 spanned by the spinor generators Qa where a runs from 1 to 4 ( L1 is not a lie algebra ). So now we have...

49. Manifolds: extrinsic and intrinsic

Dear all We all agree that a manifold is globally non euclidean but locally it is. So we can find near each point a hemeomorphic to an open set of euclidean space of the same dimension as the manifold. This is a general definition for all manifold to follow. Then what is the difference between...
