It is shown how an antisymmetric tensor of rank two can be split up in a covariant manner to give rise to two 2-component Weyl’s equations for a neutrino. The photon may then be regarded as a combination of two such neutrinos.


Si mostra come un tensore antisimmetrico di ordine due può essere diviso in modo covariante dando origine per un neutrino a due equazioni di Weyl a due componenti. Il fotone può quindi essere considerato una combinazione di due di questi neutrini.

Note added in proof, An analysis simular to the present work has also been proposed byS. K. Bose andN. Biswas at the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research. I am indebted to Dr.Bose for sending me a preprint of his work.
