Sparling, “Abstract/Virtual/Reality/Complexity” in Geometric Universe, ed S. A.
(Super)gravity and Yang-Mills Theories as Generalized Topological Fields with Constraints
The idea of a −1-form, Sparling [1, 2] during an attempt to associate an abstract twistor space to any real analytic spacetime obeying vacuum Einstein’s equations.
Generalized forms and vector fields
Sparling obtained these forms from the equation of the twistor surfaces without torsion.
Generalized forms and vector fields
In §2 we briefly discuss generalized forms, their products and exterior derivative In §3 we define the interior product developed by Sparling and Nurowski-Robinson.
Generalized forms and vector fields
The purpose of this section will be to give an alternative definition of the generalized vector field in analogy with the −1-form of Sparling et al. and to show that the results found so far follow from using this definition also.
