This book is an excellent text on an extended version of Einstein's relativity theory, developed by Moshe Carmelia and refined by the authors of the different chapters, in which space-time is extended by adding a fifth dimension, connected with the evolution of the cosmos. --CERN Courier
About the Author
Moshe Carmeli is Albert Einstein Emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Ben Gurion University in Israel. He is the author of numerous research articles and texts, such as Group Theory and General Relativity and Classical Fields. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences, and has been the President of the Israel Physical Society. He has spent many years in the United States doing research and teaching. Among the people he worked with are C.N. Yang at the State University of New York, Stony Brook and Abdus Salam at the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste. Much of his efforts in latest years were devoted to develop a new general relativity theory that is based not on the propagation of light as the starting point in Einstein's theory, but on the expansion of the Universe, thus obtaining a space-velocity theory that is later on extended to include the time dimension, making it a five-dimensional Brane World theory.
