The mathematical form and physical content of unified field theories derived from a variational principle

Abstract:

The Einstein theory of general relativity reduces as a first approximation to the old Newtonian theory and provides a satisfactory amount of such small effects as the notion of the perihelion of Mercury and the gravitational deflection of light. The greatest triumph of the theory, however, is that the field equations themselves determine the notion of an n-particle system - as a first approximation the Newtonian attraction. In ...
