Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question about spinors

If [tex]\Lambda[/tex] is a Lorentz Transformation what is (and how do you show that it is) the spinor representation of the Lorentz group ? I think it has somnething to do with the equivalence transformation [itex]S\dagger{\gamma}S=\Lambda\gamma[/itex]

But that is just a guess. Does anyone know the answer to this it has eluded me for a while. Also how do we show that it is the spinor representation...

If someone can shed some light on this I would truely be greatful!

Thanks
