Abstract

This paper gives a mathematically rigorous proof of the positive energy theorem using spinors. This completes and simplifies the original argument presented by Edward Witten. We clarify the geometric aspects of this argument and prove the necessary analytic theorems concerning the relevant Dirac operator.
