CPT Invariance and the Spin-Statistics Connection

Jonathan Bain

  • Profound analysis of the question "What explains CPT invariance and the spin-statistics connection?"
  • Chapters begin and end with plain-language summaries.
  • Introduction includes discussion of how CPT invariance and the spin-statistics connection are linked to issues in the philosophy of time and philosophical debates over the nature of indistinguishability.
  • Each chapter contains a balance between introductory exposition, technical details, and philosophical inquiry.
  • Discussion devotes equal time to "pragmatist" (heuristic) and "purist" (rigorous) approaches to formulating interacting quantum field theories.
