The particle's existence was missed by physicist Hermann Weyl during the initial development of quantum theory 85 years ago, say the researchers, because it violated a fundamental rule, called Lorentz symmetry, that does not apply in the materials where the new type of fermion arises.

Wong has studied in [15] the properties of pseudodifferential operators arising in quantum mechanics, first envisaged by Hermann Weyl in [14] as bounded linear operators on [L.sup.2](I[R.sub.n]) (the space of square integrable functions on I[R.sub.n] with respect to the Lebesgue measure).
