Superselection Sectors

Some articles on superselection sectors:

Superselection Sectors - Continuous Symmetries
... In the disordered phase, the superselection sectors are described by the representation of SO(3) under which a given configuration transforms globally ... such isolated configuration has infinite energy, it labels superselection sectors where the difference in energy between two states is finite ... there is an additional infinity of superselection sectors, each labelled by a different value of the unbroken SO(2) charge ...

... Superselection sectors ... and rays needs to be refined somewhat to take into account so-called superselection sectors ... States in different superselection sectors cannot influence each other, and the relative phases between them are unobservable ...
