  • In a previous paper we investigate a Lagrangian field theory for the gravitational field, which is there represented by a section {gα} of the coframe bundle over Minkowski spacetime (M≃R4,g,D,τg,↑). Such theory, under appropriate conditions, has been proved to be equivalent to a Lorentzian spacetime structure (M≃R4,g,D,τg,↑) where the metric tensor g satisfies the Einstein field equation. Here, we first recall that according to quantum field theory ideas gravitation is described by a Lagrangian… CONTINUE READING
