Space-Time: Dynamics of an Isotropic Non-Linear Elastic Continuum

Space-Time: Dynamics of an Isotropic Non-Linear Elastic Continuum examines a theory of space-time proceeding naturally from the basic precepts of General Relativity. Abandoning the notion of matter inhabiting and bending a surrounding space-time continuum in favor of a system comprising instead only of the continuum, all phenomena (including apparent matter) are represented as localized states, or fields, within the continuum. Postulated symmetry and uniformity are shown to yield a simple dynamic governing equation which can be demonstrated to enforce interactions resembling the known physical laws between particle-like continuum states bearing charge-to-mass properties in alignment with the periodic table. Readers well-versed in continuum mechanics will be most suited to the text. Conversely, only a general understanding of General Relativity will be necessary, although greater proficiency will profit greater perspective.
