Multivariance of geometry means that at the point P_0 there exist many vectors P_0P_1, P_0P_2,... which are equivalent (equal) to the vector Q_0Q_1 at the point Q_0, but they are not equivalent between themselves. The discrimination capacity (zero-variance) of geometry appears, when at the point $P_{0}$ there are no vectors, which are equivalent to the vector Q_0Q_1 at the point Q_0. It is shown, that in some multivariant space-time geometries some particles of small mass may be discriminated (i.e. either they do not exist, or their evolution is impossible) . The possibility of some particle discrimination may appear to be important for explanation of the discrete character of mass spectrum of elementary particles.
