Abstract:

Using the relativistic-operational concept of elementary interaction, the author shows that it is possible to write Maxwells equations in a bi-spinor form similar to that of the bi-spinor Dirac equation. In the context of a theory of elementary interactions, new electromagnetic interactions are introduced in a natural way through the use of the bispinor Maxwell equations in a Lagrangian formalism. In particular a new spinor torque interaction occurs in addition to the usual Lorentz Force interaction. The physical effects of this new electromagnetic interaction in a theory of elementary interactions are discussed. Author
