  • Balungi's Approach to Quantum Gravity

    Beyond Einstein, #5

    Series Book 5 - Beyond Einstein
    While Quantum mechanics and General Relativity are both highly successful, these two structures leave a lot of important questions unanswered. They are also based on two different interpretations of space and time, and are therefore fundamentally incompatible. We have two descriptions but, as far as we know, we've only ever had one universe. What we need is a quantum theory of gravity.Approaches ... Read more

  • A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field

    In 1865 James Clerk Maxwell (1831 - 1879) published this work, "A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field" demonstrating that electric and magnetic fields travel through space as waves moving at the speed of light. He proposed that light is an undulation in the same medium that is the cause of electric and magnetic phenomena. The unification of light and electrical phenomena led him to ... Read more
