# Induced Matter and Particle Motion in Non-Compact Kaluza-Klein Gravity

@article{Billyard2001InducedMA, title={Induced Matter and Particle Motion in Non-Compact Kaluza-Klein Gravity}, author={Andrew Billyard and William N. Sajko}, journal={General Relativity and Gravitation}, year={2001}, volume={33}, pages={1929-1951} }

We examine generalizations of the five-dimensional canonical metric by including a dependence of the extra coordinate in the four-dimensional metric. We discuss a more appropriate way to interpret the four-dimensional energy-momentum tensor induced from the five-dimensional space-time and show it can lead to quite different physical situations depending on the interpretation chosen. Furthermore, we show that the assumption of five-dimensional null trajectories in Kaluza-Klein gravity can…

It is well known that, in the five-dimensional scenario of braneworld and space–time-mass theories, geodesic motion in 5D is observed to be non-geodesic in 4D. Usually, the discussion is purely…

In brane-world theory in five dimensions, the bulk metric is usually written in Gaussian coordinates, where g4μ = 0 and g44 = -1. However, the choice g44 = -1 is an external condition, not a…
