Graviton bosonic degrees of freedom

  1. Apr 6, 2009 #1
    Hi,

    Could you pls advise me why in on-shell case graviton has two degrees of freedom?
    and in general how do I calculate bosonic or fermionic degrees of freedom of any particle?

    I was reading some books about supersummetry and stuck when they said gravitopn has two degrees of freedom and gravitiono also....

    thanks a lot
