Consider parity then it is no longer enough to talk about two spinors

  1. Jul 2, 2009 #1
    Ryder in chapter two of his book says that if we consider parity then it is no longer enough to talk about two spinors and so he introduces 4 spinors. Is there some postulate of Quantum physics that has to do with state trasformation under parity??

    Re: spinors

    Srednicki's book (available free online, google to find it) goes into great detail on the properties of two- and four-component spinors, including parity transformations.
