On the Goldstonic gravitation theory

  • D Ivanenko
  • G Sardanashvily
Gravitation And Cosmology


The physical specificity of gravity as a Goldstone-type field responsible for spontaneous breaking of space-time symmetries is investigated and extended up to supergravity. Problems of the Higgs gravitation vacuum and its matter sources are discussed. A particular “dislocation” structure of a space-time due to Poincaré translation gauge fields and the corresponding modification of Newton’s gravitational potential are predicted.
