The group of coordinate transformations for 5D noncompact Kaluza-Klein theory is broader than the 4D group for Einstein's general relativity. Therefore, a 4D quantity can take on different forms depending on the choice for the 5D coordinates. We illustrate this by deriving the physical consequences for several forms of the canonical metric, where the fifth coordinate is altered by a translation, an inversion and a change from spacelike to timelike. These cause, respectively, the 4D cosmological…

Gravity as field - field oriented framework reproducing General Relativity

In the last article we have created foundations for gravitational field oriented framework (DaF) that reproduces GR. In this article we show, that using DaF approach, we can reproduce Schwarzschild

Reproducing GR with DaF framework for general case

In the last article we have reformulated linear GR with DaF (Dilation as Field) framework, opening interesting new way for searching for quantum gravity. In this article we develop DaF farther for
