# RIEMANN-EINSTEIN STRUCTURE FROM VOLUME AND GAUGE SYMMETRY

@article{Wilczek1998RIEMANNEINSTEINSF, title={RIEMANN-EINSTEIN STRUCTURE FROM VOLUME AND GAUGE SYMMETRY}, author={Frank Wilczek}, journal={Physical Review Letters}, year={1998}, volume={80}, pages={4851-4854} }

It is shown how a metric structure can be induced in a simple way starting with a gauge structure and a preferred volume, by spontaneous symmetry breaking. A polynomial action, including coupling to matter, is constructed for the symmetric phase. It is argued that assuming a preferred volume, in the context of a metric theory, induces only a limited modification of the theory.
