I became again interested in finding preferred extremals of Kähler action, which would have 4-D CP

_{2}and perhaps also M

^{4}projections. This would correspond to Maxwell phase that I conjectured long time ago. Deformations of CP

_{2}type vacuum extremals would correspond also to these extremals. The signature of the induced metric might be also Minkowskian. It however turns out that the solution ansatz requires Euclidian signature and that M

^{4}projection is 3-D so that original hope is not realized.

I proceed by the following arguments to the ansatz.

- Effective 3-dimensionality for action (holography) requires that action decomposes to vanishing j
^{α}A_{α}term + total divergence giving 3-D "boundary" terms. The first term certainly vanishes (giving effective 3-dimensionality and therefore holography) for

D

_{β}J^{αβ}=j^{α}=0 .

Empty space Maxwell equations, something extremely natural. Also for the proposed GRT limit these equations are true.

- How to obtain empty space Maxwell equations j
^{&}alpha;=0? Answer is simple: assume self duality or its slight modification:

J=*J

holding for CP

_{2}and CP_{2}type vacuum extremals or a more general condition

J=k*J ,

k some constant not far from unity. * is Hodge dual involving 4-D permutation symbol.k=constant requires that the determinant of the induced metric is apart from constant equal to that of CP

_{2}metric. It does not require that the induced metric is proportional to the CP_{2}metric, which is not possible since M^{4}contribution to metric has Minkowskian signature and cannot be therefore proportional to CP_{2}metric.

- Field equations reduce with these assumptions to equations differing from minimal surfaces equations only in that metric g is replaced by Maxwellian energy momentum tensor T. Schematically:

Tr(TH

^{k})=0 ,

where T is Maxwellian energy momentum tensor and H

^{k}is the second fundamental form - asymmetric 2-tensor defined by covariant derivative of gradients of imbedding space coordinates.

- It would be nice to have minimal surface equations since they are the non-linear generalization of massless wave equations. This is achieved if one has

T= Λ g .

Maxwell energy momentum tensor would be proportional to the metric! One would have dynamically generated cosmological constant! This begins to look really interesting since it appeared also at the proposed GRT limit of TGD.

- Very skematically and forgetting indices and being sloppy with signs, the expression for T reads as

T= JJ -g/4 Tr(JJ) .

Note that the product of tensors is obtained by generalizing matrix product. This should be proportional to metric.

Self duality implies that Tr(JJ) is just the instanton density and does not depend on metric and is constant.

For CP

_{2}type vacuum extremals one obtains

T= -g+g=0 .

Cosmological constant would vanish in this case.

- Could it happen that for deformations a small value of cosmological constant is generated? The condition would reduce to

JJ= (Λ-1)g .

Λ must relate to the value of parameter k appearing in the generalized self-duality condition. This would generalize the defining condition for Kähler form

JJ=-g (i

^{2}=-1 geometrically)

stating that the square of Kähler form is the negative of metric. The only modification would be that index raising is carried out by using the induced metric containing also M^{4}contribution rather than CP_{2}metric.

- Explicitly:

J

_{αμ}J^{μ}_{β}= (Λ-1)g_{αβ}.

Cosmological constant would measure the breaking of Kähler structure.

_{2}. This would guarantee self-duality apart from constant factor and j

^{α}=0. Metric would be in complex CP

_{2}coordinates tensor of type (1,1) whereas CP

_{2}Riemann connection would have only purely holomorphic or anti-holomorphic indices. Therefore CP

_{2}contributions in Tr(TH

^{k}) would vanish identically. M

^{4}degrees of freedom however bring in difficulty. The M

^{4}contribution to induced metric should be proportional to CP

_{2}metric and this is impossible due to the different signatures. The M

^{4}contribution to the induced metric breaks its Kähler property.

A more realistic guess based on the attempt to construct deformations of CP_{2} type vacuum extremals is following.

- Physical intuition suggests that M
^{4}coordinates can be chosen so that one has integrable decomposition to longitudinal degrees of freedom parametrized by two light-like coordinates u and v and to transversal polarization degrees of freedom parametrized by complex coordinate w and its conjugate. M^{4}metric would reduce in these coordinates to a direct sum of longitudinal and transverse parts. I have called these coordinates Hamilton Jacobi coordinates.

- w would be holomorphic function of CP
_{2}coordinates and therefore satisfy massless wave equation. This would give hopes about rather general solution ansatz. u and v cannot be holomorphic functions of CP_{2}coordinates. Unless wither u or v is constant, the induced metric would have contributions of type (2,0) and (0,2) coming from u and v which would break Kähler structure and complex structure. These contributions would give no-vanishing contribution to all minimal surface equations. Therefore either u or v is constant: the coordinate line for non-constant coordinate -say u- would be analogous to the M^{4}projection of CP_{2}type vacuum extremal.

- With these assumptions the induced metric would remain (1,1) tensor and one might hope that Tr(TH
^{k}) contractions vanishes for all variables except u because the there are no common index pairs (this if non-vanishing Christoffel symbols for H involve only holomorphic or anti-holomorphic indices in CP_{2}coordinates). For u one would obtain massless wave equation expressing the minimal surface property.

- The induced metric would contain only the contribution from the transversal degrees of freedom besides CP
_{2}contribution. Minkowski contribution has however rank 2 as CP_{2}tensor and cannot be proportional to CP_{2}metric. It is however enough that its determinant is proportional to the determinant of CP_{2}metric with constant proportionality coefficient. This condition gives an additional non-linear condition to the solution. One would have wave equation for u (also w and its conjugate satisfy massless wave equation) and determinant condition as an additional condition.

The determinant condition reduces by the linearity of determinant with respect to its rows to sum of conditions involved 0,1,2 rows replaced by the transversal M

^{4}contribution to metric given if M^{4}metric decomposes to direct sum of longitudinal and transversal parts. Derivatives with respect to derivative with respect to particular CP_{2}complex coordinate appear linearly in this expression they can depend on u via the dependence of transversal metric components on u. The challenge is to show that this equation has non-trivial solutions.

Dear Orwin:

the general problem is to find deformations of the known extremals. Existing literature gives no help since mathematicians have not studied this kind of problem.

It is just about making the discovery after one has managed to make the physical constraints tight enough.

*It is clear on basis of previous experimentation that Hermitian structure in the Euclidian case is central and that holomorphy or partial holomorphy and light-like direction are essential elements - may be for most extremals.

*Integrable decomposition of M^4 tangent space to longitudinal and transversal parts (non-physical and physical polarizations) seems to be something universal and fits with the idea that massless fields are in question.

*Minimal surface property implying that field equations are non-linear variants of massless field equations and modified gamma matrices are proportional to induced gamma matrices.

* Effective 3-dimensionality satisfied if Kahler current vanishes, is light-like, or is proportional to instanton current (with 3-D CP_2 projection) are essential.

*Dynamical generation of analog of small cosmological constant: T = lambda g might be also rather general property of the extremals.

The challenge is to find which of these properties are correct guesses and which not! Not easy!

The dream is clear: to find deformations of all known extremals by guessing what is common to all of them.

They have kept the quantum coherence for sec. in warm environment.
