This allows us to quantize the coupled massive gravition and Proca or Kemmer spin 0 particle fields, by extending into Riemannian geometry the procedure Schwinger used in quantum electrodynamics. Finally, Einstein's gravity tensor $R_i_j- \frac{1}{2}Rg_i_j$ is equated to the mean value $\mathcal{h}\Psi|\chi\tau_i_j+\kappa^2V_i_j|\Psi\mathcal{i}$ of the total energy-momentum density; $\tau_i_j$ denotes the canonical energy-momentum ensity, which is symmetric in the absence of an electromagnetic field.O.
