Electromagnetic waves as geometrical ripples in a higher-dimensional spacetime with torsion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The authors show that the plane-fronted electromagnetic waves in our physical spacetime can be regarded as geometrical ripples in a six-dimensional spacetime with torsion. The extra dimensions are curled up into a compact S 2.
