Abstract

Starting with a simple two-scalar field system coupled to a modified measure that is independent of the metric, we, first, find a Born-Infeld dynamics sector of the theory for a scalar field and second, show that the initial scale invariance of the action is dynamically broken and leads to a scale charge nonconservation, although there is still a conserved dilatation current.
