A gauge field theory of fermionic continuousspin particles
Abstract
In this letter, we suggest a local covariant action for a gauge field theory of fermionic ContinuousSpin Particles (CSPs). The action is invariant under gauge transformations without any constraint on both the gauge field and the gauge transformation parameter. The FangFronsdal equations for a tower of massless fields with all halfinteger spins arise as a particular limit of the equation of motion of fermionic CSPs.
