Does nature have hidden anticommuting coordinates?,


Delbourgo, R, Does nature have hidden anticommuting coordinates?,, Australian Physicist, 26, (3) pp. 60-65. ISSN 0004-9972 (1989) [Professional, Non Refereed Article]


This article shows how one can append extra (fermionic) dimensions to space-time - Grassmann variables in mathematical terminology. These anticommuting coordinates help one to visualise spin and internal symmetry and allow for general relativistic models which can unify all the forces of nature
