The aim of this paper is to perform calculation of the SO(9) tensor product decom- positions and to achive the similar decompositions in the picture of Schwinger’s bosonic oscillators in constructing the SO(9) representations. The method of calculation has been known for a long time, but the author would like to present it by using the quantum mechanical language. This paper is organized as follows. In Sect. 2, relevant basic facts of SO(9) are summarized to make the paper self-contained and to introduce the neces- sary notations and conventions. Explicit forms are presented of the SO(9) simple root and of Cartan subalgebra generators for vector and spinor representations. In Sect. 3, the SO(9) tensor product to produce the higher irreducible rep- resentations is explicitly calculated by using an algebraic method of quantum mechanics. In Sect. 4, after introducing the Schwinger’s bosonic oscillators for the SO(9) vector and...

Abstract

The weights and representation matrices of the vector and the spinor representation of the Lie algebra SO(9) are introduced in the quantum mechanical language. Tensor product decompositions of any two of them are explicitly shown by using an algebraic method of quantum mechanics. Similar decompositions are finally achieved for a coupled tensor operator in the picture of Schwinger’s bosonic oscillators.
