I'm wondering how the spin of a particle, whether a particle is a fermion or a boson... how does this relate to the symmetry of a particle, U(1) or SU(2) or SU(3)? I'm trying to understand SUSY in relation to the other internal symmetries? Is there spin 1/2 and spin 1 particles associated with each of the symmetries U(1) or SU(2) or SU(3)? Or does each symmetry only have one possible spin?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
