Description of Interactions by Energy-Dependent Metrics

Chapter
Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 157)

We will now show how the dynamic role of the energy, in describing the structure of space–time, can be exploited in order to geometrize all four fundamental interactions, so to comply with the Finzi principle. As already stressed earlier, this can be achieved by suitably deforming space–time, according to what dictated by the energy involved in the process, ruled by the interaction considered. Speaking in a figurative language, we can say that in such a view space–time is not a rigid (and passive) background, but a sort of elastic carpet, able to change its shape according to the (energy of) the interaction involved, and to react in turn on the process, thus affecting its dynamics in an active way.
