Abstract

Field theoretic models possessing a global internal fermionic shift symmetry are considered. When such a symmetry is realized locally, spin-3/2 fields appear naturally as gauge fields. Implementation of the gauging procedure requires not only the usual replacement of ordinary derivatives by covariant derivatives containing the spin-3/2 fields, but also the inclusion of additional monomials. The Higgs mechanism and the high energy Nambu-Goldstone fermion equivalence theorem axe explicitly demonstrated.
