Elementary particle interaction from a Kaluza-Klein scheme

Francesco Cianfrani, Giovanni Montani

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We discuss properties of particles and fields in a multi-dimensional space-time, where the geometrization of gauge interactions can be performed. As far as spinors are concerned, we outline how the gauge coupling can be recognized by a proper dependence on extra-coordinates and by the dimensional reduction procedure. Finally applications to the Electro-Weak model are presented. © 2008 World Scientific Publishing Company.
