    welcome to pf!

    hi sncum! welcome to pf! :smile:

    a spinor is not a vector

    each particle has a wave-function Ae

    for spin-½ particles (fermions, such as the electron or proton), A is a spinor not a vector

    for spin-0 or spin-1 particles (scalar or vector bosons, such as the photon), A is a scalar or vector :wink:
