The GTR2-GB reconsiders the basic stones with which the theory of relativity has been built.

Three fundamental hypotheses are characterizing the GTR-p theory:

  • The discussion is developed in a four-dimensional real vector space E(4, R) referred to a canonical basis.
  • The time is a vector (the arrow of time).
  • Basis vectors can vary and their successive partial derivations up to the pth order are again in E(4, R).

With these simple assumptions, two crucial results can be obtained:

  • There is a mathematical object of which the components are mimicking those of the Riemann-Christoffel curvature tensor; I provisory label it with the composed word “pseudo-tensor”.
  • The whole coherence is obtained under one important condition: the partial derivates of the four basis vectors form a Clifford algebra; this mathematical fact suggests the existence of electromagnetic fields with a geometrical origin. This fact may eventually be put in relation with another one which has been obtained within my analysis of the covariant version of the Lorentz law; see the page: The chameleons fields

These preliminaries have caught my attention because they seemingly furnish two essential ingredients allowing the construction of a unified theory containing gravitation and electromagnetic fields in a four-dimensional space.

The rest of my explorations is checking the plausibility of these premises.
