Title: The Clifford Bundle And The Nature Of The Gravitational Field
Author: Rodrigues Jr. W.A.
de Souza Q.A.G.
Abstract: In this paper we formulate Einstein's gravitational theory with the Clifford bundle formalism. The formalism suggests interpreting the gravitational field in the sense of Faraday, i.e., with the field residing in Minkowski spacetime. We succeeded in discovering the condition for this interpretation to hold. For the variables that play the role of the gravitational field in our theory, the Lagrangian density turns out to be of the Yang-Mills type (with an auto-interaction plus gauge-fixing terms). We give a brief comparison of our theory with other field theories of the gravitational field in the flat Minkowski spacetime. © 1993 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
