Publication Identifier 150501 TitleHow the Elementary Process Theory corresponds to Special Relativity: 'degrees of evolution' as a curled-up fifth dimension Type of publicationpreprint Author(s)M.J.T.F. Cabbolet Contributor(s) KeywordsElementary Process Theory, Special Relativity, correspondence principle, time dilation, fifth dimension, Publisher Source Publication date2015-05-16 LanguageEnglish AbstractThis self-contained, non-technical paper shows that invariance of the squared interval, arguably the most important theorem of Special Relativity (SR), emerges from the Elementary Process Theory (EPT) if the degrees of evolution, a parameter in the EPT, form an additional spatial dimension that is curled up. The analytical-philosophical reasoning is an integral part of the proof that the EPT corresponds to SR, cf.
