Vanishing Vierbein in Gauge Theories of Gravitation

We discuss the problem of a degenerate vierbein in the framework of gauge theories of gravitation. We show that a region of space-time with vanishing vierbein but smooth principal connection can be, in principle, detected by scattering experiments. Here

An Assessment of Evans’ Unified Field Theory I

Abstract Evans developed a classical unified field theory of gravitation and electromagnetism on the background of a spacetime obeying a Riemann-Cartan geometry. This geometry can be characterized by

EEQT A Way Out of the Quantum Trap

We review Event Enhanced Quantum Theory (EEQT). In Sect. 1 we address the question ‘Is quantum theory the last word’. In particular we respond to some of the challenging statements of H. P. Stapp. We

Teleparallelism-A viable theory of gravity?

The teleparallelism theory of gravity is presented as a constrained Poincare gauge theory. Arguments are given in favor of a two-parameter family of field Lagrangians quadratic in torsion. The

Degenerate metric phase boundaries

The structure of boundaries between degenerate and non-degenerate solutions of Ashtekar's canonical reformulation of Einstein's equations is studied. Several examples are given of such `phase
