* Idea: Particles obeying Fermi-Dirac statistics, such that any N-particle quantum state changes sign when any two of them are exchanged; They are usually represented in physics by spinor fields, belonging to a representation space for the Poincaré group with half-integer value of the spin s, and their role is that of elementary constituents of matter.
