* Observations regarding the nature of how the mass of fundamental particles arises from their gravitational and non-gravitational self-interactions.
* How special relativity determines the sign of electromagnetism and gravity.
* Analysis of the gravitational self-interaction (1970); clarified and expanded upon in 2009. (Criticism of this result and a similar one by Feynman in 1995 that shows an out of the box thinking alternative analysis can be found here). And, some related non-obvious observations about the properties of stress energy tensors. Also graviton-graviton scattering drawing on SUGRA (i.e. the gravitational extension of supersymmetry). A new PhD dissertation expands on the seminal work of Arnowitt, Deser and Misner regarding the global conservation properties of GR extrapolating them in a sensible way to localize the GR effects that they discussed globally. This thesis cites the following papers by these collaborators, four from 1959-1961 and one republished in 2008.
* Non-local modifications of GR to explain dark energy effects without a scalar field or f(R) theory.
* A memorial recalling Dirac's work on gravity.
* A no go result on quantum field theories of gravity.
Deser's papers address many fundamental questions in physics with a clarity of exposition that is lacking in many newer publication.
