The following formula appears in P J Mulders's lecture notes(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

http://www.nat.vu.nl/~mulders/QFT-0E.pdf [Broken]

[tex]{\cal C}~b(k,\lambda)~{\cal C}^{-1}~=~d(k,{\bar \lambda})[/tex] (8.18)

where [tex]{\cal C}[/tex] is charge conjugation operator.

[tex]\lambda[/tex] is helicity.

I don't know why there is [tex]{\bar {\lambda}}[/tex] on the right side,

as is well known that charge conjugation can not change helicity, spin, and momentum.

Thanks
