Hermitian conjugate

  1. Feb 20, 2007 #1
    I just have a simple question about hermition conjugates of spinors. Is the hermitian conjugate of:
    [tex] \epsilon \sigma^\mu \psi^\dagger [/tex]
    equal to:
    [tex] -\psi \sigma^\mu \epsilon^\dagger [/tex]
    where both psi and epsilon are 2-component spinors of grassmann numbers?

    "spinors of Grassmann parity 1" you should have written.

    As to the question, the answer is "yes".
