The particles are only labeled by the quantum numbers that are conserved for that particle. Particles with integral spin J (J = 0, 1, 2, ) are called bosons . Particles with half-integral spin J (J = , 3/2, ) are called fermions . Particles with spin-parity J P = + are refered to a scalars , -are pseudo-scalars , 1-are vectors , 1 + are pseudo-vectors , 2 + are tensors , etc. Hadrons are labeled by I G J PC ....
