The Dirac field is an anticommutating field. But what part of it is anticommutating? Is it the spinors, or the coefficient in front of the spinors? In quantum field theory I think it's the coefficients that anticommute, so that the spinors should commute, but not their coefficients. In classical field theory, the coefficients are just regular numbers, so then it must be that the spinors anticommute?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
