Abstract:

Spinors are defined by their special transformation behavior in the special theory of relativity. The most fundamental problem in a spinor theory in the general theory of relativity is therefore the way in which spinors in Riemannian space undergo transformations. The purpose of this report was to summarize subsequent investigations and their results. A detailed account is to be given in Special Report no. 8. The topics covered in this report include 1 Fundamentals of spinor transformations in Riemannian space 2 Spin and angular momentum in the general theory of relativity and 3 Appraisal of the literature.
