 Summary

This book shows how one can combine YangMills gauge symmetry and effective EinsteinGrossmann metric tensors to tackle physical problems at microscopic, macroscopic and supermacroscopic length scales. In particular, the combination of gauge symmetry and an effective metric tensor provides a framework for and leads to an alternative dynamics of cosmic expansion based on quantum YangMills gravity at the supermacroscopic limit. Together with the cosmological principle, one can investigate and derive expanding scale factors, the age of the universe, the cosmic redshift, and the Hubble recession velocity. Furthermore, this framework leads to a possible explanation for the latetime accelerated cosmic expansion due to baryon masses and charges. All these discussions are based on the operationally defined space and time coordinates of inertial frames. Finally, this book expounds on the intimate relationship between spacetime translation gauge symmetry and the beautiful ideas of the Lie derivative and Pauli's variation. One interesting application of the Lie derivative is to formulate a gravitational theory with an external spacetime gauge group, which leads to YangMills gravity.

 Summary

 Logical Connections of Relativity Theories with 4Dimensional Symmetry xix
 0a. Limitations of Special Relativity 1
 0b. Question #1: Can the theory of relativity be formulated solely on the basis of the first principle of relativity (without assuming the constancy of the speed of light)? 2
 0c. Question #2: Can one generalize the 4dimensional transformation for inertial frames to noninertial frames with a constant acceleration or rotation? In accelerated frames, the speed of light is no longer a universal constant; is the Planck constant still a universal constant? 4
 0d. Question #3: Within the 4dimensional symmetry framework of special relativity, it appears to be impossible, in principle, to generalize the classical Liouville equation for manyparticle systems to a Lorentz invariant Liouville equation. Can we overcome this difficulty? 4
 0e. Question #4: In view of the profound divergence difficulties in quantum field theory, is the spacetime 4dimensional symmetry exact at very large momenta or short distances? 5

 Summary

The purposes of this book are (1) to explore and expound relativity physics and fourdimensional symmetry from the logically simplest viewpoint by making one single postulate instead of two; and (2) to indicate the simplest generalization of the Lorentz transformation in order to cope with frames with constant linear accelerations. The fundamentally new ideas of the first purpose are developed on the basis of the term paper of a Harvard physics undergraduate. They lead to an unexpected affirmative answer to the longstanding question of whether it is possible to construct a relativity theory without postulating the constancy of the speed of light and retaining only the first postulate of special relativity. This question was discussed in the early years following the discovery of special relativity by many physicists, including Ritz, Tolman, Kunz, Comstock and Pauli, all of whom obtained negative answers. Furthermore, the new theory of relativity indicates the truly universal and fundamental constants in physics, and provides a broad view of relativistic physics beyond special relativity. It substantiates the view and sheds light on the understanding that the fourdimensional symmetry framework can accommodate many different concepts of physical time, including common time and Reichenbach's general concept of time. This logically simplest viewpoint of relativity allows a natural extension of the physics of particles and fields from inertial frames to noninertial frames in which the speed of light is not constant. New predictions in physics resulting from this new viewpoint are discussed. The book is based on papers by the author and his collaborators in Physics Letters A, Nuovo Cimento B, and Physical Review A and D.
