1) has been studied by Mustonen and Berkovits in [6] and [11], and by Brezis and Nirenberg in [12] but only for N = 1 and when g(x, t, s)/s is located strictly between two consecutive eigenvalues of the D'Alembertian, more precisely when [[lambda].

If there exist two positive Consecutive eigenvalues of the D'Alembertian [[lambda].
Dirac's master wave equation can be factorized--essentially by taking the square-root of the d'Alembertian operator applied to a Majorana 2-spinor wavefunction--to obtain not only Dirac's famous electron equation (in the common 4-spinor formalism), but also the equations for more exotic spinning particles (including the Proca equation, the Duffin-Kemmer equation for spins 0 and 1, and the Rarita-Schwinger equations for spin 3/2).
There is another difficulty: there is no general covariant d'Alembertian which, being in its clear form, could be included into the Einstein equations.
