This book describes the geometry of curving and twisting surfaces that is used to relate the geometry of space-time to the energy density and hence to all of physics and introduces the reader to the way Cartan mathematics has been developed for use in grand unified field theory.
The book contains a seventy page glossary of terms, which describes the nuts and bolts used in describing the geometrical processes used in the new theory. For most readers, this is the first section to read and being at the back of the book allows the reader easier access to flip back to it to refer to it while working through the main text. For most, reading the main text will be challenging, because it goes far beyond the normal Euclidean geometry that we are all familiar with from our school days. However, many readers will be enthralled by the sheer ingenuity of the geometry derived to describe all of space and time.
Enthusiasts may wish to delve deeper by inspecting the primary research papers which led to the new theory, Einstein-Cartan-Evans theory or ECE theory as it is also known. These papers can be found on the associated website, which is that of The Alpha Institute for Advanced Studies, aias.us. To date 760 papers can be read directly by clicking on 'Myron Evans' on the home page and then on the 'Omnia opera'.
For an history of how the theory developed readers may like to refer the book, 'The Life of Myron Evans: A Journey Through Space and Time', which was published by CISP in 2011.
A unified field theory is developed and some new results are presented. Explanations for some of the unexplained problems in the standard model are given. This gives strong support to the veracity of the theory.
Starting from Einstein's R = kT and some vector equations, the author shows how Einstein's field equation and a new wave equation are derived from the same initial equation. The unification wave equation is (¡õ + kT) qa¦Ì = 0.
In explaining R = kT, the author explains the equations stating that R is geometric curvature, T is energy density, and k is just a conversion factor. He shows that R is mathematics and T is physics. In explaining (¡õ + kT) qa¦Ì = 0, he shows how the equation is part quantum mechanics, part Einstein general relativity, and part Cartan differential geometry. Each of these is explained in some depth so that the ideas are clear.
A large number of essential concepts are covered ¨C the nature of spacetime, symmetries that allow the wave equation to describe all the fields of physics, and Cartan differential geometry.
The figures are excellent and different from the run of the mill general relativity or quantum mechanics book. There are a lot of them and they show what the text and math are describing. There is also an excellent 70 page glossary that serves as a reference with both basic and details about the text.
