I am going to take a leap and jump in here. As I read the debate on this issue, there appears to be some distinct points of difference, but the overall approach may not be completely different.

I cannot intelligently comment on Gennady's complete statement that Riemannian geometry can not be a group manifold because it lacks the Cartan Structure Equations. But perhaps I can say a few things about parts of this statement."

There may be a problem of the Russian --> English translation here since, e.g. Rovelli's book Ch 2 clearly shows Cartan structure equations for 1915 GR without torsion. How to generalize correctly to torsion is not completely obvious. I need another go at that.

Only 2 key principles:
1. Locally gauge every continuous group, both internal & space-time.

2. Enforce equivalence principle by making weak force Higgs vacuum coherence mechanism also the source of emergent c-number gravity. Note that we have running coupling constants - weak force gets stronger at higher energy.

Side point:

Heisenberg's uncertainty principle is INCOMPLETE, i.e.

&r ~ h/&p + (G*/c^3)&p

G* is effective gravity parameter at scale &r.

Simplest Higgs mechanism in the standard model has TWO complex scalar fields for SU(2)weak

i.e. n = 4 real fields.

But only one complex scalar field develops the local order parameter VEV =/= 0. It is electrically neutral.

Remember U(1)hyperchargeSU(2)weak has 4 generators, combinations of which make ONE electric charge neutral massless photon and 3 massive Weak bosons. Not the Higgs bosons, which is another part of the theory.
From this POV I only have 2 real fields, n = 2, so in 3 space 1 + d' + r = 3. Stable defects d' = d - n = 1 string vortices rather than point defects. The two real VEV's give me 1 Goldstone Phase to make gravity with from

B = (hG/c^3)^1/2'd' (Goldstone Phase)

On the other hand, there are other possible models.

Of the 4 real fields, 3 feed mass to the W-bosons and the remaining massless one is the photon.

In this model N - K = 1 is dim of H, which in this case is U(1).
K = 3 = number of broken generators of G = U(1)xSU(2) has N = 4
and if n = 4, i.e., U(1) acts as multiple of identity on the two complex fields, rather than my earlier n = 6, then there is only 1 Higgs boson that should be ~ 250 Gev, which is the critical temperature for the onset of the VEV at least at this cosmological epoch. Presumably it was much larger when the universe was smaller consistent with the strength of the weak coupling decreasing as universe expands.

OK, Einstein-Cartan tetrad, showing the LIF tangent fiber indices explicitly

e^I = 1^I + B^I

B^I also from local gauging of T4 to Diff(4)

The 1 + B split is Diff(4) INVARIANT

Hence B = 0 really is a globally flat spacetime.

Zero torsion 2-form means

De^I = 0

where the SPIN CONNECTION is the 1-form W^IK

D = d + W^IK/
De^I = dB^I + W^IK/\B^K = 0

Therefore W determined from B, which comes from SINGULAR nonlocal Bohm-Aharonov "Flux-without-flux" 'd'(Goldstone Phase) d' = 1 vortex string singularities in simplest Higgs model that will not give a stable Hedghog where we need d' = 0.

The curvature 2-form is

R^IK = DW^IK = dW^IK + W^IJ/\W^JK

Bianchi identity is

DR^IK = 0

Einstein's field eq. is

D*RIK = *J(Matter)

Local conservation of matter current density is

D*J(Matter) = 0

That's 1915 GR in a NUTSHELL using SAME Cartan form eqs as in EM or Yang-Mills theory.
SAME FORMAL TEMPLATE.

Enter TORSION from local gauging of O(1,3) that is GLOBAL in 1915 GR.

This gives TORSION 1-form Potential S^IK where now

D' = D + S/
Therefore, the CURVATURE 2-form is now

R'^IK = D'W^IK = R ^IK+ S^IJ/\W^JK

Note the TORSION-CURVATURE COUPLING S/\W

The TORSION 2-form is

T'^IK = D'S^IK = dS^IK + W^IJ/\S^JK + S^IJ/\S^JK =/ = 0

The Bianchi identities are

D'R' = 0

D'T' = 0

The FIELD EQUATIONS are

D'*R' = *J(Translation)

D'*T' = *J(Rotation)

The LOCAL current conservation laws are

D'*J = 0 (both)

Everything is MOD Diff(4,) i.e. Einstein's "local coincidences" P = {Diff(4) Orbits of manifold points} as explained by Rovelli Ch 2.

One can add Yang-Mills fields from internal symmetry groups trivially into

D" = D' + A^IK/
where A^IK = A^IKaT^a

T^a are the charges of G which spontaneously breaks to H etc.

"A formalism is not a geometry. The Cartan Equations of Structure arising from the what is often called the Cartan Moving Frame Method, which I think is synomous with Gennady's Oriented Point Method, provides a formalism upon which one can impose additional constraints and assumptions."

Yes, Gennady uses a 10Dim manifold from the local gauging of O(1,3), which will be internal parameters in my notation

i.e. Bu^I ~ BuP^I

The 4 P^I form Lie algebra of T4 for 4D translations

Su^IK ~ SuL^IK

L^IK are the 6 O(1,3) Lie algebra generators for 4D rotations.

There are conjugate phases @^I & @^IK, I =/= K, for each, i.e. a 10 Dim manifold of "dynamical phases" (not Goldstone phases of VEV's of course)

"From what I can see, Jack is using the Cartan Structure Equations in his derivation. However, I do not think Gennady's objection is to Jack's use of the Cartan Structure Equations specifically. What Gennady appears to be saying is that the Curvature Form which appears in the Equations of Structure is not the same kind of mathematical object as the Curvature that shows up in the Riemannian Differential Geometry of GR. Gennady is correct on this so far as I know."

Yes, but there is a TETRAD MAPPING connecting them.

R^IK = Ruv^IKdx^udx^v

Ruv^wl = Ruv^IKeI^wel^K

The base space u,v indices ARE HIDDEN in the Cartan formalism, that is AUTOMATICALLY DIFF(4) SCALAR LOCAL INVARIANT in sense of P "local coincidences" of course.

"What shows up in the Equations of Structure is what Vargas calls the "Total Curvature", of which the classical Riemannian Curvature is only a piece."

That's exactly my

R' = D'W = R + S/\W

The difference is the direct torsion-curvature coupling.

If you want TELEPARALLELISM, then I suppose that means

R' = 0

T' =/= 0

"By making the assumption that Torsion vanishes, one obtains Riemannian GR and a Riemannian Curvature."

Yes, that's simply S = 0 in my notation.

"(One can readily use the Cartan formalism to recover Riemannian GR, it just does not contain the full richness of the mathematics that can be obtained from the Cartan formalism if one does not make the vanishing Torsion assumption.)

Therefore, if the vanishing Torsion assumption is used, then the more restricted version of the Curvature Form shows up in the Equation of Structure and the full theory is not obtained. Jack in the first part of his derivation does appear to be using a vanishing Torsion assumption, which forces the Curvature in Jack's equations to not be the full Total Curvature of the Cartan formalism. So, in this sense, Gennady is correct that there is a discrepancy."

Not really. I simply did that at first for PEDAGOGY to show how to get Einstein's 1915 theory as THE FIRST BABY STEP. After a few FUMBLES I think I got the TORSION extension of GR above (correcting some previous errors).

"However, about 2/3 to 3/4 of the way down in Jack's sequence of equations, there appears a T', a "modified" Torsion, which is not assumed to vanish. So, with this final set of equations, Jack seems to be satisfying Gennady's concern over the apparent use of a vanishing Torsion in the Cartan formalism."

Yes. But also I have the CONNECTION to Higgs mechanism for origin of inertia of leptons and quarks and GRAVITY so that SPIRIT of equivalence principle is obeyed GRAVITY & INERTIA EMERGE TOGETHER! Still lots of mopping up details of course. But basic idea I think is sound. Everything FROM COHERENCE including ZPF COHERENCE i.e. ZPF, like ALL EPR ENTANGLEMENTS is LOCALLY RANDOM but NONLOCALLY COHERENT or PHASE-LOCKED. In contrast Higgs field CONDENSATE is BOTH LOCALLY AND NONLOCALLY COHERENT. The origin of GRAVITY and INERTIA TOGETHER is from the LOCAL COHERENCE. The DARK ENERGY/MATTER is from the LOCAL w = -1 INCOHERENCE of the NONLOCALLY EPR CORRELATED ZPF in the T = 0 Kelvin "Vacuum".

Assuming vanishing Torsion yields GR. Assuming the vanishing of the Total Curvature (in which case, the Torsion does not vanish) is called Teleparallelism (TP) and is one primary leg of Vargas Theory."

Yes, that's easy in my notation, that's

R' = R + S/\W = 0

T' = dS' + W/\S + S/\S =/= 0

But why R' = 0 is not physically compelling for me. I prefer

D'R' = 0

D'*R = *J (Translation)

D'T' = 0

D'*T' = *J(Rotation)

D'*J = 0 etc.

"Another difference is that Vargas Theory does not seek to introduce gauge fields into the frame forms (i.e. Jack's e) or into theory at all. Finally, no assumption of a spin-connection is made in Vargas Theory and the resulting "geometric" Maxwell-Einstein Equations resulting from the Torsion Equation of Structure do not have a rotating source. Torsion in Vargas Theory is not related to rotation, but rather, in a certain matehmatically detailed sense, to EM. The geometric Maxwell Equations essentially represent a geometrization of the EM (at that level of theory).

Take care,

Robert E. Becker"

I think my theory makes more physical sense than Vargas theory BECAUSE

I get Gravity and Dark Energy/Matter and Inertia ALL EMERGING TOGETHER in a way consistent with standard model of leptons & quarks. My theory is very close to observation and is FALSIFIABLE.

In this way my theory is better not only than Vargas theory, it is better than STRING THEORY and better than LOOP QUANTUM GRAVITY.

I make some strong predictions of principle:

1. Dark Matter Omega ~ 0.23 is VIRTUAL NONLOCALLY COHERENT ZPF that is LOCALLY RANDOM with positive pressure for compact sources.

2. Hence DARK MATTER DETECTORS will BE SILENT with RIGHT STUFF same a Michelson-Morley not showing Ether Drift - barring some bizarre claims to the contrary of course. No exotic on-mass-shell quanta will explain Galactic Halo etc.

3. Quantum foam does not exist and high energy cosmic photons will not show it!

4. Universal slope of Regge trajectories for hadronic resonances is STRONG SHORT RANGE ZPF induced gravity.

Basically Kerr solution J/h ~ GM^2/hc (I published that in 1973)

i.e. anticipated string-blackhole correspondance in 1973.

Witten et-al WRONG that GR is not a LOCAL GAUGE THEORY! (when properly

I agree with Witten et-al .
Jack Sarfatti

Is that what you mean? What exactly do you agree with?

Riemann geometry which has been used by Einstein, has no Cartan structural equationsÃ  and cannot be submitted as a group manifold. It is only a shadow of the "true" geometry.

Jack Sarfatti

I do not understand what you just wrote. Rovelli has the structural equations in Ch 2 of his online "Quantum Gravity" book. Indeed I have written them down now several times.
http://www.cpt.univ-mrs.fr/~rovelli/rovelli.html
has free pdf early version of book.

Rovelli's eqs are essentiall

Given W^IJ = spin-connection 1-form

I,J in tangent space fiber indices raised and lowered with constant flat Minkowski metric nIJ in accord with EEP.

Exterior covariant derivative is

D = d + W/
The curvature 2-form is

R^IJ = dW^IJ + W^IK/\W^KJ

Bianchi identities

DR = 0

Einstein's field eqs.

D*R = *J(Matter)

Local conservation of stress-energy current densities

D*J(Matter) = 0

Einstein-Hilbert Field Lagrangian Density 0-form

L = {IJKL}R^I^J/\e^K/\e^L

{IJKL} is completely antisymmetric tensor

e^I = e^Iudx^u

ds^2 = guvdx^udx^v = eu^InIJev^Jdx^udx^v

e = e^I&I

where &I are basis vector fields in fiber dual to dx^I

So above is standard with zero torsion 2-form assumed, i.e.

T^I = De^I = de^I + W^IJ/\e^J = 0

In my theory, I have additional structure:

e = 1 + B

B = (hG/c^3)^1/2'd'(Goldstone Phase of Charge Neutral Higgs Field Component)

B also comes from local gauging of T4 to Diff(4)

De = dB + W/\(1 + B) = 0

W determined from B completely.

If we also locally gauge O(1,3)

we get in addition to W(Curvature) an S(Torsion)

D' = d + W^IJ/\ + S^IJ/\ = D + S/
We now have to make some choices

R' = D'W = R + S/\W

T' = D'S = dS + 'S/\S' + W/\S

Note T' has 2 indices, T only had 1.

'S/\S' = S^IKS^KJ etc.

Bianchi identities

D'R' = 0

D'T' = 0

Field equations

D'*R' = *J(Translation Sources)

D'*T' = *J(Rotating Sources)

Local conservation of current densities

D*J(Translation) = 0

D*J(Rotation) = 0
Jack! Rovelli used that has been made by Cartan in 1926. Nothing new. A source of a mistake that Riemann geometry (1854) is based on a point manifold, and Cartan geometry on the orinted point manifold. These are the different approaches giving different results. In Cartan approach there is no Riemann curvature without Ricci torsion.

Jack Sarfatti

OK these are MY NEW CURVATURE-TORSION FIELD EQs (replacing my earlier ones that may not have been quite correct) from LOCAL GAUGING full 10-parameter Poincare space-time symmetry group with spontaneous broken WEAK FORCE internal symmetry supplying the charge neutral Goldstone phase that generates BOTH CURVATURE and TORSION as Bohm-Aharonov "Flux-without-flux" nonlocal SINGULAR GAUGE TRANSFORMATIONS on the charge-neutral Goldstone phase.

B(Curvature) = (hG/c^3)^1/2'd'(Neutral Goldstone Phase of SU(2)weak Higgs Vacuum ODLRO)

'd' means SINGULAR gauge transformation i.e. off the singular topological defect 'd'(Phase) is closed i.e.

d'd'(Phase) = 0 like what looks like an exact 1-form with a 0-form Phase.

Nevertheless when the closed loop 1-cycles surround a topological defect Phase Singularity the NONLOCAL DeRham integral of the 1-form around this singular NON-BOUNDING 1-cycle LOOP not only does not vanish, but it is quantized!

The SINGULAR INTEGRAL of the B-1form about the topological defect is a MEMBER of the HOMOTOPY GROUP ~ Z

i.e. PI1[S1] = Z in this case.

In general PI(surrounding cycle)[Order Parameter Fiber Space] is the physically relevant Homotopy Group.

In simple terms this is Bohr-Sommerfeld quantization from single-valuedness of the "More is different" emergent LOCAL zero thermodynamical entropy vacuum order parameter from the weak force spontaneous broken symmetry giving both gravity and inertia together in ONE UNIFIED MECHANISM consistent with the EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE.

"Flux-without-Flux is DEFINING the "circulation integral of the p-form" as equal to the flux integral of its exterior derivative over the surrounded p+1 manifold including its topological defect.

This is essentially the NONLOCAL BOHM-AHARONOV ACTION-AT-A-DISTANCE of the topological defect in which the Goldstone Phase is undefined at the ZEROs of its complementary Higgs Amplitude

i.e. Order Parameter Component = (Higgs Amplitude)e^i(Goldstone Phase) c-number field

However, we still have Number-Phase complementarity for the small vibration quanta either real or virtual.

There are two approaches to the geometry - Riemannian and Cartanian. The Riemannian approach is wrong from the beginning. Only a method of orthogonal reper used by Cartan gives the correct approach, and it means, that torsion of space is different from zero. If torsion is equal to zero we have Minkovski space (Einstein).

Jack Sarfatti

I have proved that GR is a local gauge theory
R = DW

D = d + W/
DR = 0

D*R = *J

D*J = 0

R = Curvature 2-form

above is only for 1915 GR limit of zero torsion 2-form

T = De = D(1 + B) = 0

R is like EM field F in

F = dA

dF = 0

d*F = *j

dj* = 0

Where B(P), W(P), R(P)

P is local coincidence not a bare manifold point x

Technically P = {x} = Coset Orbit of All x in manifold mod Diff(4).

Jack Sarfatti

It's straight-forward to generalize to Shipov's torsion field theory
using the Cartan forms that are local frame invariant automatically.

Using of Cartan forms cannot give generalization of the physical theory.

Formalism of external forms it only the mathematical tool.

Besides my theory is finished with experiment and, even up to technology, but the theory of strings is phenomenological model which after some time willl die.
