§ 3. P -, T - and C-properties of two-component equations

In studying P -, T - and C-properties of the equations of motion one does not

indicate as a rule, with what algebra P (1, 3) the given equation is connected. Such an

approach, as it follows from the results of the previous section, is not quite correct

for the studying P -, T , C-properties of Eqs. (2.13), (2.20), (2.28), since the same

equation connected with various algebras P (1, 3) can have various properties with

respect to the space-time reflections.

In order the equation, invariant with respect to the proper group P (1, 3), be P -,

T - and C-invariant it is necessary and sufficient to satisfy such relations:

P (k) , H = 0, k = 1, 2, 3,

?

P (k) , Pl for

=0 k = l,

?

P (k) , Pl for

=0 k = l,

+

P (k) , Jlr for

=0 k = l, k = r, (3.1)

+

P (k) , Jlr for

=0 k = l, k = r,

?

P (k) , J0l for

=0 k = l,

?

P (k) , J0l for

=0 k = l;

+

T (1) , H = T (1) , J0l T (1) , Pk = T (1) , Jkl (3.2)

= 0, = 0,

? ? + +

T (2) , H = T (2) , J0l T (2) , Pk = T (2) , Jkl (3.3)

= 0, = 0,

? ?

+ +

[C, H]+ = [C, Pk ]+ = [C, Jµ? ]+ = 0. (3.4)

Hence it follows that the equation of motion is invariant with respect to P -trans-

formation if all the conditions (3.1) are satisfied. Usually when studying P -properties

of the equations one verifies only the first relation from (3.1) that, evidently, is not

sufficient for the correct conclusion.

How we give the explicit expressions for the operators r(k) , ? (i) (see formulas

(1.3.2)–(1.3.5)) determining the operators of discrete transformations.

On the sets {?1 } and {?1 } the operators P (k) , T (2) and C cannot be determined

since the range of values of these operators does not belong to the sets {?1 } and

{?1 }. The operator T (1) on {?1 }, {?1 } can be defined and it is determined by such

operators

The operators (3.16)–(3.24) are obtained from (3.5)–(3.11), (3.14),(3.17) with the

help of transformations (2.19), (2.27). The transformation law of these operators is

given in (D.10)–(D.16).

Summing up all the above said we come to the final conclusion:

1) Eq. (2.13) for the function ?1 (or ?1 ) is T (1) - and P (k) C-invariant, but P (k) -,

T (2) - and C-noninvariant;

2) Eq. (2.13) for the function ?2 (or ?2 ) is T (1) -, T (2) - and C-invariant, but P (k) -

and CP (k) -noninvariant;

3) Eq. (2.14) is P (k) - and T (1) -invariant, but T (2) -, C- and CP (k) -noninvariant.

Evidently Eqs. (2.20), (2.28) have these properties as well.

Note 1. In [1] we established P -, T - and C-properties of Eq. (2.20) starting from the

assumption that r(k) , ? (k) on the set {?} are the 2 ? 2 matrices. As is seen from the

previous such an assumption is limited. On the set {?} r(k) , ? (k) are the operator

functions depending on the momentum components of the particle.

Note 2. Under the four-dimensional rotations in Minkovski space the wave functions

?1 , ?1 , ?2 , ?w , ?3 , ?3 , ?2 are transformed nonlocally.

2

In conclussion of this section we give some corrollaries immediately following from

the previous, which can be useful for the construction of weak interaction models on

the basis of the equations obtained.

Corrollary 1. Any (one-component or two-component) equation of motion for the

particles with zero mass is Invariant with respect to the Wigner reflection of time

T (1) .

Corrollary 2. Eq. (2.20) for the function ?2 (or (2.28) for the function ?w ) is T (1) C-

2

and T (2) C-invariant, but P C-, P T (1) -, P T (2) -, P T (1) C- and P T (2) C-noninvariant.

It means that for such equation neither hypothesis of combined parity conservation,

nor hypothesis of P T C-invariance conservation is valid.

Corrollary 3. Eq. (2.14) is P T (1) -, T (2) C- and P T (2) C-invariant, but P T (2) -, P C-

and P T (2) C-noninvariant.

§ 4. CP -noninvariant subsidiary conditions

The results of previous sections can be rather simply and briefly formulated if one

describes the zero mass particle with the help of four-component wave function. In

218 W.I. Fushchych, A.L. Grishchenko

this case the wave function has the redundant (nonphysical) components which ran

be invariantly separated with the help of relativistic-invariant subsidiary conditions.

From § 2, 3 it follows that there are three types of subsidiary conditions. One of them

is well known and has the form

?

P1 ? = 0 P1 ? = 0,

+

or (4.1)

1

±

P1 = (1 ± ?4 ). (4.2)

2

Eq. (2.9) together with the condition (4.1) is equivalent to Eq. (2.28) for the

function ?w (or (2.20) for the function ?1 ).

1

Now we find two other relativistic-invariant subsidiary conditions. Besides the

matrix ?4 the energy sign operator commutes with the algebra (1.2.1). Hence it is

clear that the operators

P2 = 1 ± ?4 H = ?0 ?k pk , (4.3)

,

2 E

H

1

±

P3 = 1± (4.4)

2 E

commute with the algebra (1.2.1). The operators P2 , P3 are the projection operators.

We show then that the conditions

?

P2 ? = 0 P2 ? = 0,

+

or (4.5)

?

P3 ? = 0 P3 ? = 0,

+

or (4.6)

can be considered as subsidiary conditions.
