An invariant definition of mass is given, within the context of a geometric unified theory, in terms of the geometric connection and the matter current. This geometric mass corresponds to the concept of self energy and leads to the mass parameter in Dirac's equation. 
Non Metric Mass
Mass terms are often introduced into wave equations: for example introducing a mass term for a scalar field gives the Klein-Gordon equation (□ 2 -m 2 )Φ = 0. Proceeding similarly with the metric ofExpand
Geometric gravitational origin of neutrino oscillations and mass-energy
A mass-energy scale for neutrinos was calculated from the null cone curvature using geometric concepts. The scale is variable depending on the gravitational potential and the trajectory inclinationExpand
On Exponential Decay and the Riemann Hypothesis
A Riemann operator is constructed in which sequential elements are removed from a decaying set by means of prime factorization, leading to a form of exponential decay with zero degeneration, referredExpand


Physical geometry: A unified theory of gravitation, electromagnetism and other interactions
An invariant correlation and a variational principle are given for the theory of connections and frames introduced in previous papers. The relation of the resultant gravitation theory to Yang'sExpand
Geometrical unified theory of connection fields and frame fields.

SL(2, C) invariance and the gravitational field
Abstract The gravitational field equations of general relativity theory are cast into a Yang-Mills type of theory by use of the group SL(2, C). The spin coefficients take the role of theExpand
The Gravitational equations and the problem of motion
Introduction. In this paper we investigate the fundamentally simple question of the extent to which the relativistic equations of gravitation determine the motion of ponderable bodies. PreviousExpand
