About This Book

This book sketches in detail, in its first part, some possible intriguing suggestions in order to conceive, and deal within a unified scheme, the dual aspects of particle and wave coexisting and conflicting in theoretical physics from the beginning of the 20th century, so opening a door to a deep harmonization of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. And in the second part it presents a new approach to field unification, including gravity, together with the standard model of elementary particles and scalar boson, within the frame of multidimensional general relativistic universe. Cosmological application of the proposed theory involves non-trivial predictions about the still unexplained universe flatness, dark matter and dark energy. A way to gravity quantization appears also practicable.

Author Introduction

Prof. Alberto Strumia, author of this book, is a member of the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica (I.N.D.A.M) “Francesco Severi” – Rome (www.altamatematica.it) and vice director of the Advanced School for the Interdisciplinary Research (www.adsir.org), after being full professor of Mathematical Physics at the Dept. of Mathematics at the Universities of Bologna (I) and Bari (I) and associate to the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (I.N.F.N.). He is a physicist with a wide spectrum of research interests spreading from theoretical and mathematical physics to philosophy of science and interdisciplinary topics. He is author of numerous papers and books covering all these subjects. At present he is invited professor of Logics, Philosophy of Science and Philosophy of Nature at the Theological Faculty of Emilia-Romagna of Bologna (I).
