Abstract

Factor representations of the nonsemisimple E(2)-like little group for massless particles are used to construct free gauge theories for arbitrary spin, which explicitly solves the dichotomy between the unitary requirement and the appearance of gauge degrees of freedom. This conceptually new approach may help us understand the deep relation between gauge theory and space-time symmetry.
