The Poincare group

  1. Aug 27, 2012 #1
    Hi all!

    I'm trying to study the Poincare group and I have one problem. I'm reading a book: Gross D. Lectures on Quantum Field Theory (there is section about it). So I do not understand how the second part of (3.26 and 3.27) folows from the first part i.e I do not understand how was obtained the commutator.

    I don't know why a lot of people assume that everyone here has every single physics book ever written. Can you, maybe, provide the actual formulas you are asking a question about? That dramatically increases the odds that somebody will help you out.

    Good point. I'd like to help, but have no access to this book now. For the time being, you may have a look at my lecture notes on qft, where you find a lot on the Poincare group and its representations,
