The equivalence between local inertial frames and electromagnetic gauge
in Einstein-Maxwell theories

Alcides Garat
We are going to prove that locally the inertial frames and gauge states of the electromagnetic field are equivalent. This proof will be valid for Einstein-Maxwell theories in four-dimensional Lorentzian spacetimes. Use will be made of theorems proved in a previous manuscript. These theorems state that locally the group of electromagnetic gauge transformations is isomorphic to the local Lorentz transformations of a special set of tetrad vectors. The tetrad that locally and covariantly diagonalizes any non-null electromagnetic stress-energy tensor. Two isomorphisms, one for each plane defined locally by two separate sets of two vectors each. In particular, we are going to use the plane defined by the timelike and one spacelike vector, plane or blade one. These results will be extended to any tetrad that results in a local Lorentz transformation of the special tetrad that locally and covariantly diagonalizes the stress-energy tensor.
