By direct verification one can be convinced that the operators (2.15)–(2.17) satisfy

the commutation relations of algebra P (1, 3). These three representations are not

equivalent. Really the operators of energy sign and helicity have the form

for the representation (2.16),

for the representation (2.17).

? ? = ?3

Hence it is clear that the representations (2.12), (2.16), (2.17) are not equivalent and

are given in the spaces R1 , R2 , R3 respectively.

Besides two-dimensional representations given for the algebra P (1, 3) one can,

evidently, obtain the other ones as well which however, will be unitary-equivalent to

(2.15)–(2.17). If, for example, in (2.15)–(2.17) one performs the substitution

e3 > 1, |p3 | > p3 , (2.18)

then the operators obtained also realize the representations of the algebra P (1, 3). The

explicit form for the generators of the group P (1, 3) obtained from (2.15)–(2.17) with

the help of substitution (2.18) will be denoted in the sequal by (2.15 )–(2.17 ).

If in (2.15)–(2.17) the matrix ?3 is substituted by 1 (or ?1), then such operators

will realize one-dimensional irreducible representations of the algebra P (1, 3) which

are, of course, unitarily equivalent to the corresponding one-dimensional Shirokov

representations [5]. The representations [5] are obtained without connection with the

equations of motion and are realized on the functions ?(p1 , p2 , p3 ) not depending on

the time.

Summing up all the above presented we come to the conclusion:

1) Eq. (2.13) together with algebra (2.15) (or (2.15 )) describes the particle with

helicity + 1 and the antiparticle with helicity ? 1 4 ;

2 2

2) Eq. (2.13) together with algebra (2.16) (or (2.16 )) describes the particle with

helicity + 1 and the antiparticle with helicity + 1 ;

2 2

3) Eq. (2.14) together with algebra (2.17) (or (2.17 )) describes two particles with

helicity + 1 and ? 1 5 .

2 2

If Eq. (2.13) is connected with the algebra (2.13) (or (2.15 )) the wave function of

such equation is denoted by ?1 (or ?1 ). The wave function in Eq. (2.13) connected

with the algebra (2.16) (or (2.16 )) is denoted by ?2 (or ?2 ). Similarly ?3 (or ?3 )

denotes the wave function in Eq. (2.14) connected with the algebra (2.17) (or (2.17 )).

3. The transition from the canonical equation (2.13) to the non-canonical one of

the type (1.3.1) is realized with the help of unitary transformation [1]

differing one from another by the helicity sign.

If one connects with Eqs. (2.13) and (2.14) the representations (2.15 )–(2.17 ), but

not the representations (2.l5)–(2.17) in this case the transition from the canonical

equation to the noncanonical one can he conveniently realized with the help of the

unitary transformation [6]

Eq. (2.14) is unchanged by the transformation (2.27). The generators Jµ? ? Jµ?

coincide with (2.25) where the operator H has the form (2.31) and in the operators

(2.26) the substitution (2.18) is performed. This algebra is denoted by (2.25 ). Under

From the above given analysis it follows such a result:

1) Eq. (2.20) together with the algebra (2.24) (or Eq. (2.28) together with the

algebra (2.31)) describes the particle with helicity + 1 and the antiparticle with

2

helicity ? 1 ;

2

2) Eq. (2.20) together with the algebra (2.25) (or eq. (2.28)) together with the

algebra (2.25 )) describes the particle with helicity + 1 and the antiparticle with

2

helicity + 1 .

Thus, the same (by the form) Eq.(2.20) (or the Weyl equation (2.28)) describes

different types of particles and antiparticles depending on the representation of group

P (1, 3) with respect to which the wave functions ? (or ?w ) are transformed under

transformations from the group P (1, 3).

Not only the equations invariant with respect to the group P (1, 3) have such

a dual nature but also the equations invariant with respect to the inhomogeneous

de Sitter group P (1, 4). Within the frameworks of the P (1, 4) group the same (by

the form) equation of the Dirac type describes the various types of particles and
