Prelude: C, P and T in classical dynamics

Time reversal – morethan meets the eye

 

In this chapter we study C, P and T symmetry in classical mechanics and electrodynamics. First we restate the definitions of these transformations together with some comments.

  • Parity transformations P change a space coordinate image into image This is equivalent to a mirror reflection followed by a rotation. For momentum and angular momentum we have, respectively:

 

(2.1)

This is an example for a general classification: among vectors, which are defined by their ...
