"Extended" Particles, Non Commutative Geometry and Unification
Abstract
A reconciliation of gravitation and electromagnetism has eluded physics for neearly a century. It is argued here that this is because both quantum physics and classical physics are set in differentiable space time manifolds with point particles. Once we consider extended particles as in Quantum Superstring theory, and the consequential underlying NonCommutative geometry, then a reconciliation is possible.
