Duality invariance of s ≥ 3/2 fermions in AdS
The research show that in D = 4 AdS, s ≥ 3/2 partially massless (PM) fermions retain the duality invariances of their flat space massless counterparts. They have tuned ratios m ^{2}/M ^{2} ≠ 0 that turn them into sums of effectively massless unconstrained helicity ±(s, ···, 3/2) excitations, shorn of the lowest (nondual) helicity ±1/2rung and — more generally — of succeeding higher rung as well. Each helicity mode is separately duality invariant, like its flat space counterpart.
