Abstract
Symmetry properties of physical laws with respect to space-inversion, time-reversal and charge-conjugation are investigated in detail in the framework of the quantized field theory. In most cases, the requirements of invariance or these transformations are automatically satisfied; in a few other cases they can impose certain conditions on the ways in which different types of interaction are to be mixed. The ideas of space-parity, charge-parity and superselection rules are coherently derived from the general formulation of field theory.
