Abstract : The theory of induced representations is used to discuss a class of indecomposable representations of the Poincare group in Hilbert space with an indefinite metric which occur in theories with zero-mass particles. The formalism provides a number of further generalizations to representations with m squared <0, and to infinite-component tensor fields. (Author)
