Title: Left- and right-handed neutrinos and Baryon-Lepton masses

Abstract

The self-dual and anti-self-dual parts of the electromagnetic field tensor satisfying the vacuum Maxwell equations are shown to be related in a covariant manner to a left-handed and right-handed two-component Weyl neutrino {nu}{sub L} and {nu}{sub R}, respectively. A simple quantum mechanical analysis of a composite {nu}{sub L}-{nu}{sub R} system with a certain interaction shows that such a model can exhibit a two-fold branching and defect in the total energy of the system, which could then be interpreted as Baryon and Lepton mass formation.
