Gravitation and unified covariant formalism of classical gauge fields in equiaffine space

  • V. M. Koryukin


In this paper, we construct a unified covariant formalism for the classical gauge fields in an equiaffine space. The gauge transformation groups are the Lie groups, induced according to the third Lie theorem by the structure constants. As a result of the gauge transformations, one set of geometric objects is replaced by another. It is confirmed that the differential conservation laws in the equiaffine spaces are a result of the equations of the gauge fields. The particular case when the gauge transformation group is a four-parameter group and is abelian is distinguished. This group corresponds to gauge fields that are induced by an energy-momentum tensor and, which, as a result, are called gravitational fields. As a particular case of the equations of the given gravitational fields, we obtain Einstein's equations with the help of a Lagrangian, which is quadratic with respect to the gravitational field intensities. In concluding, we note the possibility of describing gauge fields, corresponding to nongravitational interactions of vector mesons with nonzero rest mass, without invoking the scalar Higgs mesons. This possibility appears both as a result of the generalization of the Yang-Mills covariant derivative and as a result of including gravitational interactions in the general gauge field formalism.
