TORRES-SILVA, Héctor. A NEW RELATIVISTIC FIELD THEORY OF THE ELECTRON. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2008, vol.16, n.especial, pp.111-118. ISSN 0718-3305. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33052008000400016.
In this paper we present a qualitative discussion of a new General Relativistic Field Theory for the electron, obtaining the Dirac equation from electromagnetic fields with the electric field parallel to the magnetic field. The guiding principle is that of general relativity, and the main hypothesis is that the fundamental equations embrace the Dirac theory and the Maxwell-Lorentz theory as of two special cases respectively. We concern ourselves with the consistency and compatibility among those conditions under which the fundamental equations are reduced to the Dirac equation and the Maxwell-Lorentz equations. We expect that the present investigation will shed some light on those perplexing difficulties which we encounter in comprehending the behavior of an electron solely according to the Dirac equation and the Maxwell-Lorentz equations. Beyond this, we aim to investigate the possibility that other elementary particles are governed by the same fundamental equations under varied restrictive conditions.
