The main results are reviewed of relating the scalar field of noncompactified Kaluza-Klein gravity to the Higgs field of particle physics. The embedding of 4D spacetime in a 5D manifold can result in a variable cosmological 'constant' and particle masses tiny compared to the Planck value.

In a five-dimensional gravitational theory (or 5D gravity), a scalar field is usually included to couple with the gravitational and electromagnetic fields, which are directly originated from or… Expand

This manuscript presents some recent results of the GEMS (Gravity-Electro-Magnetism Super) Unification theory which unifies the four forces of nature. The two long range forces Gravity and… Expand
