On the duality condition for a Hermitian scalar field
Abstract
A general Hermitian scalar field, assumed to be an operatorvalued tempered distribution, is considered. A theorem which relates certain complex Lorentz transformations to the TCP transformation is stated and proved. With reference to this theorem, duality conditions are considered, and it is shown that such conditions hold under various physically reasonable assumptions about the field. A theorem analogous to Borchers' theorem on relatively local fields is stated and proved. Local internal symmetries are discussed, and it is shown that any such symmetry commutes with the Poincaré
