α(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); ^{ι}M^{2}=(-1/2+N^{⊥})

then, if N^{⊥}=1/2 α^{ι}M^{2}=0, additionally if N^{⊥}=0 then α^{ι}M^{2}=-1/2 and so on.

When N^{⊥}=1/2 then the fermions are all masless (as M^2 must be equivalent to 0 as α is not) and there are 8 states.

I don't know if this is to specific or not described well but my question is: how does one get to the 8 fermion states and how many states would one have when the N^{⊥}is ,say, equivalent to 3/2?

Please excuse, I Couldnt find a better header. Thanks for any help.
