Part of the Multiversal Journeys book series (MVJ)


In the Einsteinera of general relativity the only other force known to exist beyond gravity was electromagnetism which was already successfully described by Maxwells equations. There was a desire to try to understand if these theories had a common origin. Einstein himself had the goal of unifying Maxwells theory with general relativity.
