In this review about Kaluza-Klein theories, (page 1115) in order to determine the mass spectrum of the 5 dimensional theory the metric is expanded to first order. Why this? Why not retain the full ...
Consider the following metric which is 5 dimensional (2-parameter) spherically symmetric Kaluza-Klein solution ...
I heard in a lecture recently - just as a comment - that a particle which is massive in say $D=4$ can be seen as a massless particle in higher dimensions and vice versa. Our prof didn't give any ...
I was reading an article in this months issue of Physics World magazine on the three main theories of extra dimensions and stumbled across something I didn't quite understand when the author began ...
