IN the five-dimensional theory of the connexion between electromagnetism and gravitation first proposed by Th. Kaluza (Sitzungsberichte d. Berl. Akad., 1921, S. 766; see also O. Klein, Zs. für Phys., 37, 875, 1926), the equations of motion of an electrified particle may be shown to be the equations of geodetics belonging to the following line element: where x1, x2, x3, x4 are the co-ordinates of ordinary space time with the line element gikdxidxk, while x° is a fifth co-ordinate, and the φi are… Expand
Unified theory of gravitation and electromagnetism, based on the conformal groupSO4,2
SummaryWe have done a «mininal» change in the existing 4-dimensional relativity, by extending it to the 6-dimensional conformal (ηa)-space (flat or curved one) with the metric tensorgab (a, b=0, 1,Expand
The Nature of the Fifth Dimension in Classical Relativity
Hyperdimensional unified field theories date back to 1921, when Kaluza reported that the Einstein equations of general relativity written in five dimensions (5D) would yield both the standardExpand
Five-dimensional relativity
SummaryWe study the hypothesis where the universeU is a five-dimensional Riemannian manifold, wich satisfies certain global topological conditions. We postulate the existence of a principle ofExpand
A new unified theory of electromagnetic and gravitational interactions
In this paper we present a new unified theory of electromagnetic and gravitational interactions. By considering a four-dimensional spacetime as a hypersurface embedded in a five-dimensional bulkExpand
A tentative program for the development of quantum field theory as an extension of the equivalence principle of general relativity theory
Abstract The paper contains an attempt towards a generalized quantum field theory based on a formal extension of Einstein's principle of equivalence to electromagnetism and more general interactionsExpand
Kaluza-Klein theories in the framework of Polymer Quantum Mechanics.
We provide a re-analysis of the $5D$ Kaluza-Klein theory by implementing the polymer representation of the dynamics, both on a classical and a quantum level, in order to introduce in the modelExpand
A Note On Einstein, Bergmann, and the Fifth Dimension
This note is devoted to a detail concerning the work of Albert Einstein and Peter Bergmann on unified theories of electromagnetism and gravitation in five dimensions. In their paper of 1938, EinsteinExpand
Tales from the prehistory of Quantum Gravity
Abstract The main purpose of this paper is to analyse the earliest work of Léon Rosenfeld, one of the pioneers in the search of Quantum Gravity, the supposed theory unifying quantum theory andExpand
THE WORLD IN ELEVEN DIMENSIONS: A TRIBUTE TO OSKAR KLEIN
Current attempts to find a unified theory that would reconcile Einstein’s General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics, and explain all known physical phenomena, invoke the Kaluza-Klein idea of extraExpand
ON THE KALUZA–KLEIN GEOMETRIZATION OF THE ELECTROWEAK MODEL WITHIN A GAUGE THEORY OF THE FIVE-DIMENSIONAL LORENTZ GROUP
The geometrization of the Electroweak Model is achieved in a five-dimensional Riemann–Cartan framework. Matter spinorial fields are extended to 5 dimensions by the choice of a proper dependence onExpand
