# The Scalar Field Of 5D Gravity And The Higgs Field Of 4D Particle Physics: A Possible Connection

@article{Wesson2010TheSF, title={The Scalar Field Of 5D Gravity And The Higgs Field Of 4D Particle Physics: A Possible Connection}, author={Paul S. Wesson}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2010} }

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.
