# Elko Spinor Fields and Massive Magnetic Like Monopoles

@article{Oliveira2013ElkoSF, title={Elko Spinor Fields and Massive Magnetic Like Monopoles}, author={E. Capelas De Oliveira and Waldyr Alves Jr. Rodrigues and Jayme Vaz}, journal={International Journal of Theoretical Physics}, year={2013}, volume={53}, pages={4381-4401} }

In this paper we recall that by construction Elko spinor fields of λ and ρ types satisfy a coupled system of first order partial differential equations (csfopde) that once interacted leads to Klein-Gordon equations for the λ and ρ type fields. Since the csfopde is the basic one and since the Klein-Gordon equations for λ and ρ possess solutions that are not solutions of the csfopde for λ and ρ we infer that it is legitimate to attribute to those fields mass dimension 3/2 (as is the case of Dirac…

A generalized electromagnetic theory for the mass spectrum of neutrinos

In previous papers it was shown that solutions of Weyl equation that are eigenstates of the parity operator describe a coupled pair of a monopole anti-monopole system, and these results suggest to seek a solution of the Maxwell equation with a current as a source and such that the Lorentz force on the current is null.
