All Spacetimes Beyond Einstein
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 44

Description:
Which geometries on a smooth manifold (apart from Lorentzian metrics) can serve as a spacetime structure? This question is comprehensively addressed from first principles in eight lectures, exploring the kinematics and gravitational dynamics of all tensorial geometries on a smooth manifold that can carry predictive matter equations, are time-orientable, and allow to distinguish positive from negative particle energies.
