Abstract

A theoretical study is made of conformal factors in certain types of physical theories based on classical differential geometry. Analysis of quantum versions of Weyl's theory suggest that similar field equations should be available in four, five and more dimensions. Various conformal factors are associated with the wave functions of source and test particles. This allows for certain quantum field equations to be developed. The curvature tensors are calculated and separated into gravitational, electromagnetic and quantum components. Both four and five dimensional covariant theories are studied. Nullity of the invariant five scalar of curvature leads to the Klein-Gordon equation. The mass is associated with an eigenvalue of the differential operator of the fifth dimension. Different concepts of interaction are possible and may apply in a quantum gravitational theory. MS: , PACS 03, 04.50 Typeset using REVT E X I.
