$2D$ Fractional Supersymmetry and Conformal Field Theory for alternative statistics
Abstract
Supersymmetry can be consistently generalized in one and two dimensional spaces, fractional supersymmetry being one of the possible extension. 2D fractional supersymmetry of arbitrary order $F$ is explicitly constructed using an adapted superspace formalism. This symmetry connects the fractional spin states ($0,{1 \over F}, ...,{F1 \over F}$). Besides the stress momentum tensor, we obtain a conserved current of spin($1 + {1 \over F})$. The coherence of the theory imposes strong constraints upon the commutation relations of the modes of the fields. The creation and annihilation operators turn out to generate alternative statistics, currently referred as quons in the literature. We consider, with a special attention, the consistence of the algebra, on the level of the Hilbert space and the Green functions. The central charges are generally irrational numbers except for the particular cases $F=2,3,4$. A natural classification emerges according to the decomposition of $F$ into its product of prime numbers leading to subsystems with smaller symmetries.
