Wesson P.S. Space-Time-Matter: Modern Kaluza-Klein Theory
World Scientific Publishing Company, 1999, 209 pages

Einstein endorsed the view of Kaluza that gravity could be combined with electromagnetism if the dimensionality of the world is extended from 4 to
5. Klein applied this idea to quantum theory, laying a basis for the various mode versions of string theory. Recently, work by a group of researchers has resulted in a coherent formulation of 5D relativity, in which matter in 4D is induced by geometry in 5D. This theory is based on an unrestricted group of 5D coordinate transformations that leads to new solutions and agreement with the classical tests of relativity. This book collects together the main technical results on 5D relativity, and shows how far we can realize Einstein's vision of physics as geometry.

Sрringer, 2011, 131 pages | This book continues the fundamental work of Arnold Sommerfeld and David Hestenes formulating theoretical physics in terms of Minkowski space-time geometry. We see how the standard matrix version of the Dirac equation can be reformulated in terms of a real space-time algebra, thus revealing a geometric meaning for the number i in quantum mechanics. Next, it is examined in some detail how electroweak theory can be inte...

World Scientific Publishing Company, 2005, 142 p. Richard Feynman’s never previously published doctoral thesis formed the heart of much of his brilliant and profound work in theoretical physics. Entitled The Principle of Least Action in Quantum Mechanics, its original motive was to quantize the classical action-at-a-distance electrodynamics. Because that theory adopted an overall space–time viewpoint, the classical Hamiltonian approach used in t...

Cambridge University Press, 2010, 309 p. The theory of relativity describes the laws of physics in a given space-time. However, a physical theory must provide observational predictions expressed in terms of measurements, which are the outcome of practical experiments and observations. Ideal for researchers with a mathematical background and a basic knowledge of relativity, this book will help in the understanding of the physics behind the mathema...

Cambridge University Press, 1953, 218 Pages This classic book is essential reading for all those interested in the development of modern physics. Sir Arthur Eddington's account of the general theory of relativity, 'without,' as he says in his preface, 'introducing anything very technical in the way of mathematics, physics or philosophy', was first published in the exciting days of 1920 soon after the first objective tests of the theory had demons...

D. Reidel Publishing Company, 1986, 241 p. This monograph is a sequel to my earlier work, General Relativity and Matter, which will be referred to henceforth as GRM. The monograph, GRM, focuses on the full set of implications of General Relativity Theory, as a fundamental theory of matter in all domains, from elementary particle physics to cosmology. It is shown there to exhibit an explicit unification of the gravitation and electromagnetic field...
