Homework Help: Srednicki 34.15 - Notation Question

  1. Nov 11, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Is the index notation in Srednicki's 34.16 correct given what he does in 35.29.

    Essentially, in going from 34.15 to 34.16, when taking the hermitian conjugate, he does not remove the dots. In going from 35.27 to 35.29, he has done so (the dot on 'a' has moved over onto the 'c').

    Also, am I correct in assuming that the '*' does not mean 'Conjugation' but 'Hermitian Conjugation over the Spinor Indices'. Either way, there are some other question marks hovering in my head.

    Thanks in Advance
