Research on the Non-Linear Spinor Theory with Indefinite Metric in Hilbert Space

  • W. Heisenberg
Part of the Gesammelte Werke / Collected Works book series (HEISENBERG, volume B)


The present report will be confined to recent developments in a non-linear spinor theory of matter, that had been treated in several previous papers1). The theory is different from the conventional theories especially by the use of an indefinite metric in Hilbert space and by the introduction of dipole-ghost states, the rôle of which has been analysed in some detail with the help of the Lee model 2).
