A generalization of Einstein's gravitational theory is discussed in which the spin of matter as well as its mass plays a dynamical role. The spin of matter couples to a non-Riemannian structure in space-time, Cartan's torsion tensor. The theory which emerges from taking this coupling into account, the ${U}_{4}$ theory of gravitation, predicts, in addition to the usual infinite-range gravitational interaction medicated by the metric field, a new, very weak, spin contact interaction of… Expand
