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… 
Magnetic Like Particles and Elko Spinor Fields
This chapter scrutinizes the theory of the so-called Elko spinor fields (in Minkowski spacetime) which always appears in pairs and which from the algebraic point of view are in class five in Lounesto
Elko and mass dimension one field of spin one half: causality and Fermi statistics
We review how Elko arise as an extension of complex valued four-component Majorana spinors. This is followed by a discussion that constrains certain elements of phase freedom. A proof is reviewed
The Relativistic Hamilton–Jacobi Equation for a Massive, Charged and Spinning Particle, its Equivalent Dirac Equation and the de Broglie–Bohm Theory
Using Clifford and Spin–Clifford formalisms we prove that the classical relativistic Hamilton Jacobi equation for a charged massive (and spinning) particle interacting with an external
Remarks on mass dimension one fermions: The underlying aspects, bilinear forms, Spinor Classification and RIM decomposition
In the present essay we review the underlying physical information behind the first concrete example describing a mass dimension one fermion - namely Elko spinors. We start the program exploring the

An analog of the $S=1/2$ Feynman-Dyson propagator is presented in the framework of the $S=1$ Weinberg's theory. The basis for this construction is the concept of the Weinberg field as a system of
The Clifford algebra of physical space and Dirac theory
The claim found in many textbooks that the Dirac equation cannot be written solely in terms of Pauli matrices is shown to not be completely true. It is only true as long as the term in the usual
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.
The Clifford Algebra of Physical Space and Elko Spinors
Elko spinors are eigenspinors of the charge conjugation operator. In this work we use the Clifford algebra of the physical space in order to formulate the theory of Elko spinors and use a procedure
Further investigation of mass dimension one fermionic duals
Abstract In this paper we proceed into the next step of formalization of a consistent dual theory for mass dimension one spinors. This task is developed approaching the two different and
A hint towards mass dimension one Flag-dipole spinors
In this report we advance in exploring further details concerning the formal aspects of the construction of a Flag-dipole spinor. We report a (re-)definition of the dual structure which provide a


ELKO, Flagpole and Flag-Dipole Spinor Fields, and the Instanton Hopf Fibration
Abstract.In a previous paper we explicitly constructed a mapping that leads Dirac spinor fields to the dual-helicity eigenspinors of the charge conjugation operator (ELKO spinor fields). ELKO spinor
From Dirac spinor fields to ELKO
Dual-helicity eigenspinors of the charge conjugation operator (ELKO spinor fields) belong, together with Majorana spinor fields, to a wider class of spinor fields, the so-called flagpole spinor
Algebraic and Dirac–Hestenes spinors and spinor fields
The present paper clarifies some misunderstandings appearing on the literature of Dirac spinor fields and exhibits a truly useful collection of results concerning the theory of Clifford algebras (including many tricks of the trade) necessary for the intelligibility of the text.
The relation between Maxwell, Dirac, and the Seiberg-Witten equations
We discuss unsuspected relations between Maxwell, Dirac, and the Seiberg-Witten equations. First, we present the Maxwell-Dirac equivalence (MDE) of the first kind. Crucial to that proposed
Wave equation for a magnetic monopole
AbstractWe show that there is room, in the Dirac equation, for a massless monopole. The basic idea is that the Dirac equation admits a second electromagnetic minimal coupling associated to the chiral
On a local mass dimension one Fermi field of spin one-half and the theoretical crevice that allows it
Since the 1928 seminal work of Dirac, and its subsequent development by Weinberg, a view is held that there is a unique Fermi field of spin one-half. It is endowed with mass dimension three-half.
From Dirac Action to ELKO Action
A fundamental action, representing a mass dimension-transmuting operator between Dirac and ELKO spinor fields, is performed on the Dirac Lagrangian, in order to lead it into the ELKO Lagrangian. Such
The bundles of algebraic and Dirac–Hestenes spinor fields
Our main objective in this paper is to clarify the ontology of Dirac–Hestenes spinor fields (DHSF) and its relationship with even multivector fields, on a Riemann–Cartan spacetime (RCST)
Very special relativity as relativity of dark matter: the Elko connection
In the very special relativity (VSR) proposal by Cohen and Glashow, it was pointed out that invariance under HOM (2) is both necessary and sufficient to explain the null result of the
Spin-half fermions with mass dimension one: theory, phenomenology, and dark matter
We provide the first details on the unexpected theoretical discovery of a spin-one-half matter field with mass dimension one. It is based upon a complete set of dual-helicity eigenspinors of the
