In a recent paper [1], it has been proposed that relativistic wave–particle duality can be embodied in a relation that shows that the four-velocity of a particle is proportional to the Dirac four-current. In this note we bring out some problems with that idea. In particular, we point out that, in line with existing literature on Einstein-Cartan gravity with torsion, the spin-torsion term should represent negative energy. Moreover, if what is proposed in Eq. (20) of [1] is correct, then the spin…

We propose that relativistic wave–particle duality can be embodied in a relation 〈u〉 = ψ̄γψ/ψ̄ψ, which determines the mean four-velocity of the fermion particle associated with a Dirac wave function.…

- Physics
- 2021

In the presence of spacetime torsion, the momentum components do not commute; therefore, in quantum field theory, summation over the momentum eigenvalues will replace integration over the momentum.…

We present a self-contained introduction to the classical theory of spacetime and fields. This exposition is based on the most general principles: the principle of general covariance (relativity) and…

### Nonlinear Spinor Equation and Asymmetric Connection in General Relativity

- Physics
- 1971

In order to take full account of spin in general relativity, it is necessary to consider space‐time as a metric space with torsion, as was shown elsewhere. We treat a Dirac particle in such a space.…

The Immirzi parameter is a constant appearing in the general-relativity action used as a starting point for the loop quantization of gravity. The parameter is commonly believed not to appear in the…

One of the reasons why Einstein-Cartan-Sciama-Kibble theory --- which includes torsion due to the intrinsic spin of matter --- is not widely accepted as a viable theory of gravity, is the lack of any…
