Hi when trying to derive this equation, i am stuck on:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[itex] [\Gamma_{\mu}(x),\gamma^{\nu}(x)]=\frac{\partial \gamma^{\nu}(x)}{\partial x^{\mu}} + \Gamma^{\nu}_{\mu p}\gamma^{p} [/itex].

This [itex] [\Gamma_{\mu}(x) [/itex] term is the spin connection, if this is an ordinary commutator:

a) is it a fermionic so + commutator

b) how can one solve to find the Gamma term whilst cancelling away the

c) can anyone give a qualitative description of what the spin connection is?

thanks
