%X The algebra of linear and quadratic function of basic observables on the phase space of
either the free particle or the harmonic oscillator possesses a finite-dimensional anomaly.
The quantization of these systems outside the critical values of the anomaly leads to a
new degree of freedom which shares its internal character with spin, but nevertheless features an infinite number of different states. Both are associated with the transformation properties of wave functions under the Weyl-symplectic group WSp(6,ℜ). The physical meaning of this new degree of freedom can be established, with a major scope, only by analysing the quantization of an infinite-dimensional algebra of diffeomorphisms generalizing string symmetry and leading to more general extended objects.
