Projective Unified Field Theory in Context with the Cosmological Term and the Variability of the Gravitational Constant

  • Ernst Schmutzer
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 56)


The 5-dimensional variant “Projective Unified Field Theory” leads to a constant gravitational coupling factor (gravitational constant) and a variable cosmological coupling factor (“cosmological constant”). This last fact could be interesting for quantum field theory in connection with the quantum fluctuations of the vacuum.
