Einstein's Washington Manuscript on Unified Field Theory**
A curious manuscript of Einstein, composed in 1938 and entitled “Unified Field Theory,” is discussed, the only such writing, published or unpublished, carrying this title without any further specification.
Conformal Wave Equation for Graviton via Dimension Reduction
Symmetry is an important concept in modern physics which can be understood via studying the transformations in a physical system. Among the various types of transformations, conformal transformation

In this note, we point attention to and briefly discuss a curious manuscript of Einstein, composed in 1938 and entitled “Unified Field Theory,” the only such writing, published or unpublished,
Albert Einstein, celebrity physicist
In Einstein’s later years, although his contributions to physics became increasingly marginal and abstract, the press continued to trumpet his far-flung unification schemes as if they were confirmed
Einstein, the reality of space, and the action-reaction principle
Einstein regarded as one of the triumphs of his 1915 theory of gravity - the general theory of relativity - that it vindicated the action-reaction principle, while Newtonian mechanics as well as his

Literal versus Careful Interpretations of Scientific Theories: The Vacuum Approach to the Problem of Motion in General Relativity
The problem of motion in general relativity is about how exactly the gravitational field equations, the Einstein equations, are related to the equations of motion of material bodies subject to
Does the Blackbody Radiation Spectrum Suggest an Intrinsic Structure of Photons
Photons are considered to be elementary bosons in the Standard Model. An assumption that photons are not elementary particles is assessed from an outlook of equilibrium statistical mechanics with
Emergence in Holographic Scenarios for Gravity
‘Holographic’ relations between theories have become an important theme in quantum gravity research. These relations entail that a theory without gravity is equivalent to a gravitational theory with
