Pauli Matrices and the Theory of Representations of the Group of Rotations

  • Huseyin Onal International Black Sea University

Abstract

It is shown that Pauli Matrixes can be derived from irreducible rotation group representations of the weight l=1/2, which in turn based on the system of infinitesimal (elementary) spatial rotations. The last permits to substantiate why Pauli matrixes can be so sufficiently used for modeling of physical rotations.
