If we assumed an empty space, but also assumed space dimensions are closed ( repeat after some distance D ), what would the metric tensor look like? Is this just equivalent to a space with a constant curvature R? If so, how does R relate to D? Would the time dimension also necessarily be closed if space dimensions are closed?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
