December 2009 An action principle for the masses of Dirac particles
Felix Finster, Stefan Hoch
Adv. Theor. Math. Phys. 13(6): 1653-1711 (December 2009).


A variational principle is introduced which minimizes an action formulated for configurations of vacuum Dirac seas. The action is analyzed in position and momentum space. We relate the corresponding Euler– Lagrange equations to the notion of state stability. Examples of numerical minimizers are constructed and discussed.
