The cosmological origin of the Nambu Jona-Lasinio model

Recently a mechanism to generate mass from gravitational interaction, based on Mach principle, according to which the inertia of a body is a property of matter as well as of the background provided by the rest-of-the-universe was presented in Refs. 1, 2. In these papers such an idea was realized for scalar and spinor fields treating the rest-of-the- universe in its vacuum state. In the present paper, using an extended version of Mach principle, the same strategy will be applied to show how the Heisenberg–Nambu–Jona- Lasinio non-linear equation for fermions Ψ arises as a consequence of the gravitational interaction of Ψ with the rest-of-the-universe.
