# A Hamiltonian Formulation of Nonsymmetric Gravitational Theories

@inproceedings{Clayton1995AHF, title={A Hamiltonian Formulation of Nonsymmetric Gravitational Theories}, author={Michael A. Clayton}, year={1995} }

The dynamics of a class of nonsymmetric gravitational theories is presented in Hamiltonian form. The derivation begins with the first-order action, treating the generalized connection coefficients as the canonical coordinates and the densitised components of the inverse of the fundamental tensor as conjugate momenta. The phase space of the symmetric sector is enlarged compared to the conventional treatments of General Relativity (GR) by a canonical pair that represents the metric density and…

This work reconsiders gravity theories constructed from a nonsymmetric metric and finds that the addition of nonderivative, ‘‘cosmological’’ terms formally restores consistency by giving a mass to the antisymmetric tensor field, thereby transmuting it into a fifth-force-like massive vector but with novel possible matter couplings.
