Nondecaying bound states of elementary spin-half particles are validated and calculated numerically for the Schwarzschild gravitational field using a self-conjugate Hamiltonian with a flat scalar.   Say there are two spin 1/2 particles, and the system is known to be in a total spin state of Stot=0. An observer comes along and determines the first particle to have a spin component (S1z) of hbar/2. Now say another observer comes along and measures the z component for the second particle (S2z). What is the outcome? Michael's answer is basically right -- it's an accident of what we've observed so far, but there are a couple points that could be added: Actually, we have observed particles with spins higher than 1. The most common at colliders are bound state. General relativity (GR), also known as the general theory of relativity (GTR), is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and the current description of gravitation in modern l relativity generalizes special relativity and refines Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and.

Succeeding chapters explore the construction of spin-2 gauge theories, concluding with an examination of nongeometric general relativity that offers an innovate approach to gravity and cosmology.

Physically, we know that there are spin 1/2 particles. A spin 1/2 field cannot be described by anything built from 4-vector fields. You can realize this for example by that 4-vector fields (and so anything built from them) returns to their original value after a $2\pi$ rotation whereas a spin 1/2 .   In general, bound states of identical neutrons are possible. They're called "neutron stars", and it is the force of gravity that holds them together. I guess two neutrons could be bound by a gravitational interaction, but gravity is so weak that it would be a huge state. And of course neutrons decay in only 20 minutes. using a suitable Hamiltonian operator Ĥ corresponding to the system. The solution is a complex-valued wavefunction ψ(r, t), a function of the 3D position vector r of the particle at time t, describing the behavior of the system.. Every particle has a non-negative spin quantum number number 2s is an integer, odd for fermions and even for s has 2s + 1 z-projection quantum. Facts and mysteries in elementary particle physics.
