Beschreibung:
"This volume provides a detailed discussion of the mathematical aspects and the physical applications of a new geometrical structure of space-time, based on a generalization ("deformation") of the usual Minkowski space, as supposed to be endowed with a metric whose coefficients depend on the energy. Such a formalism (Deformed Special Relativity, DSR) allows one to account for breakdown of local Lorentz invariance in the usual, special-relativistic meaning (however, Lorentz invariance is recovered in a generalized sense); to provide an effective geometrical description of the four fundamental interactions (electromagnetic, weak, strong and gravitational). Moreover, the four-dimensional energy-dependent space-time is just a manifestation of a larger, five-dimensional space in which energy plays the role of a fifth (non-compactified) dimension. This new five-dimensional scheme (Deformed Relativity in Five Dimensions, DR5) represents a true generalization of the usual Kaluza-Klein (KK) formalism. TOC:From the contents

(Quintus Horatius Flaccus: Carmina III, 30) The possible solution to the fundamental issue concerning the structure of the physical world an old-debated problem, starting from presocratic philosophers greatly bene?ted in the twentieth century from the ?nal merging of the separate streams of geometry and physics in a broad river of synthesis and progress. Actually, it can be traced back to Pythagoras h- selftheawarenessoftheintimatelink(andthereciprocalfeedback)between the physical measurements of times, spaces and distances and their ma- ematical representation in terms of relations among abstract geometrical entities. Thisleadsforinstancetoattachaphysicalmeaning,withinEucl- ean geometry, to the mere spatial relations between objects. However, only the basic work by Lorentz, Poincar´ e, Minkowski, and Einstein permitted to state that spacetime is something more than the simple union of space and time. Indeed, the Special and General theories of Relativity allowed xiv Preface physicists and mathematicians to recognize the arena where physical p- nomena take place as a 4D manifold, endowed with a global, Riemannian geometrical structure of Lorentzian signature, which links together space and time in an indissoluble bond.
