General Relativity and EM - Heim Theory

  1. Jul 11, 2005 #1
    Some questions in the Theory Development forum seem to be revolving
    around the topic of formulating electromagnetism as a geometrical theory
    along the same lines as gravity in General Relativity. (I couldn't post this in
    that forum for some reason.)

    This was apparently done 50 years ago but not widely known by a
    man named Burkhard Heim. Remarkably, this theory is the only one which
    seems to reproduce the mass spectra of the known subatomic particles
    from first principles, and no he was not a crank. His theory is not widely
    known because he was severely handicapped and did much of his (mostly
    unpublished) work in seclusion.

    A good overview is at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heim_theory

    For the conveneince of the forum goers, I have collected together some of
    the papers referenced in the overview. These papers are good background
    for the Heim Theory but are somewhat speculative and geared toward
    the possible application of Heim theory to exotic propulsion systems.

    Keep an open mind and let's hear some feedback from the experts on
    the forum.
