arXiv:gr-qc/0701063v111Jan2007 ELECTROSTATICS AND CONFINEMENT IN EINSTEIN'S
 

Summary: arXiv:gr-qc/0701063v111Jan2007
ELECTROSTATICS AND CONFINEMENT IN EINSTEIN'S
UNIFIED FIELD THEORY
SALVATORE ANTOCI, DIERCK-EKKEHARD LIEBSCHER, AND LUIGI MIHICH
Einstein's unified field theory was devised already in 1925 for unifying
gravitation and electromagnetism through the use of a nonsymmetric fun-
damental tensor gik and of a nonsymmetric affine connection i
kl; since 1945
it was intensely pursued by both Einstein and Schršodinger, who assumed
it to be a complete field theory, not allowing for phenomenological source
terms. However in 1955 a disappointed Erwin Schršodinger wrote: "It is a
disconcerting situation that ten years endeavour of competent theorists has
not yielded even a plausible glimpse of Coulomb's law." It occurred to us,
through the study of exact solutions found in the meantime, that physically
relevant results instead appear as soon as sources are allowed for, like it
happens with the sources of gravity in the general relativity of 1915. We
consider here the Hermitian version of the theory. Let
(1) gik = g(ik) + g[ik], i
kl = i
(kl) + i
