Actually, the original motivation is to check the closure of SUSY(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\delta X^\mu = \bar{\epsilon}\psi^\mu[/tex]

[tex]\delta \psi^\mu = -i\rho^\alpha\partial_\alpha X^\mu\epsilon[/tex]

where [tex]\rho^\alpha[/tex] is a two dimensional gamma matrix, and [tex]\psi^\mu[/tex] ia s two dimensional Majorana spinor, the index [tex]\mu[/tex] in the two dimensional world is just some label of different fields.

I try to prove

[tex][\delta_1,\delta_2]\psi^\mu = 2i\bar{\epsilon}_1\rho^\alpha\epsilon_2\ \partial_\alpha\psi^\mu[/tex]

The following identity will help me a lot to prove the above formula,

[tex]\chi_A(\xi\eta) = - \xi_A(\eta\chi) - \eta_A(\chi\xi)\cdots(*)[/tex]

where [tex]A[/tex] is the spinor index and [tex]\chi,\xi,\eta[/tex] are three spinors.

My question is, I don't know how to prove (*), and I don't know those spinors in (*) are Majorana spinors or not, moreover, I even don't know those spinors live in what dimension!

Does anyone know how to prove (*)? or anyone know the reference which treat the algebra of spinors in arbitrary dimension? Thanks a lot!
