A Viable Form of Weyl’s Theory
A reinterpretation of the Weyl vector in a Weyl geometry is shown to yield Dirac’s 1951 classical theory of the electron, thereby avoiding the most obvious problems of measurement inherent in Weyl’s original geometric formulation of electromagnetism. This paves the way for the consistency of recent metric-connection theories, for which similar questions of measurement can arise.
