Einstein's dream : the space-time unification of fundamental forces

Journal Article:

Abstract

The historical developments in physics which started with Galileo in the 11th century, Newton in the 17 century, culminated in the unification of space-time by Einstein in this century are traced. The theories put forward by Einstein himself and by subsequent workers in the field after him, regarding the unification of all basic forces of nature (i.e.) the electromagnetic and the gravitational ones and the weak and strong nuclear forces are discussed. The experiments being conducted in Kolar and other places to detect a heavier photon which would be a positive proof of the validity of the unification theory, are touched upon. The possible application of this concept even in industry has been pointed out.
