Abstract: We give a general formula for the spectral resolution of a class of first-order differential operators on the sphere $S^n$ which includes, among the most elementary cases, the Dirac and Rarita-Schwinger operators.
Keywords: spectral resolution, first-order differential operators, $n$-sphere, Dirac operator, Rarita-Schwinger operator
