SummaryIn this paper the field theories of Ogivetsky and Polubarinov for universally coupled massive tensor fields are studied. It is shown that, for a one-parameter family of Lagrangians describing the universal interaction of massive tensor fields, the field equation for the tensor field can be put in a form which gives a relation between the total energy-momentum tensor and the tensor field of the type of field-current identity of hadron electrodynamics. A field equation of this structure… Expand
