The standard spinor connection in curved space-time is represented in a compact form. In this form the calculation is complicated, and its physical effects are concealed. In this paper, we split spinor connection into two vectors $\Upsilon_\mu$ and $\Omega_\mu$, where $\Upsilon_\mu$ is only related to geometrical calculations, but $\Omega_\mu$ leads to dynamical effects, which couples with the spin of a spinor. The representation depends only on metric but is independent of Dirac matrices, so…

We investigate the quantum mechanical wave equations for free particles of spin 0, 1/2, 1 in the background of an arbitrary static gravitational field in order to explicitly determine if the phase of

This section examines the experimental basis of Einstein's theory of gravitation, and the principle of equivalence, which is expressed in the following way: all observations made locally on a system in a static, uniform gravitational field in the absence of local background matter agree with corresponding observations made on the same system when it is subjected to an equivalent acceleration in the presence of the field.

NEW APPROACH TO N-BODY RELATIVISTIC QUANTUM MECHANICS

In this paper, we propose a new approach to the relativistic quantum mechanics for many-body, which is a self-consistent system constructed by juxtaposed but mutually coupled nonlinear Dirac's

A simple extension of the hypothesis of locality is used to determine the interference phase shift induced by the rotation of a neutron interferometer, which consists of the Sagnac term, which is due to the coupling of the orbital angular momentum of the neutron with the rotate of the frame.

Search for a coupling of the Earth's gravitational field to nuclear spins in atomic mercury.

The ratio of nuclear spin-precession frequencies of Hg and Hg atoms for two orientations of magnetic field relative to the Earth's gravitational field is measured to provide a test of the equivalence principle for nuclear spins and sets limits on the magnitude of possible scalar-pseudoscalar interactions which would couple to the spins.
