Motion of a Vector Particle in a Curved Space-time. I. Lagrangian Approach

  • Published 2001
Received (received date) Revised (revised date) From the simple Lagrangian the equations of motion for the particle with spin are derived. The spin is shown to be conserved on the particle world-line. In the absence of a spin the equation coincides with that of a geodesic. The equations of motion are valid for massless particles as well, since mass does not enter the equations explicitely.
