note = "Funding Information: The mathematical problem that one should solve is therefore to find sets of irreducible representations of a given gauge group such that the symmetrized traces of d/2 + 1, d/2 - 1, d/2 - 3 generators, etc., cancel. In any even dimension the anomalies are pseudo-scalars and therefore the contribution of a left-handed spinor L is opposite to the right-handed one R. It follows that the contribution of a given representation is proportional to n L - n R and could be negative. A 1 Supported in part by the U.S.-Israel Binational Science Foundation.",
