A Statistical Approach to the Concept of Mass
Department of Mathematics, University of Stockholm, S‐106 91 Stockholm, Sweden
In this paper we use methods from differential geometry and statistical mechanics to investigate a model for the concept of mass. The theory is not quantum mechanical in the usual sense, although certain features like multiple histories and uncertainty are included in a natural way.
