(p.1) Introduction
CPT Invariance and the Spin-Statistics Connection

Jonathan Bain

Oxford University Press

The Introduction describes the properties of CPT invariance and the spin–statistics connection (SSC) and explains their significance, both to philosophers and to physicists. It then discusses reasons why it is problematic to claim that the CPT and spin–statistics theorems provide explanations of CPT invariance and the SSC. A summary of each chapter follows.

Keywords:   CPT invariance, spin–statistics connection, CP violation, neutral kaons, principle of the identity of indiscernibles, Bose–Einstein condensates, superfluids, non-relativistic quantum field theory, scientific explanation
