Abstract

The classical field theories developed in the preceding chapters all have in common that they are formulated on a flat spacetime, i. e., on a four-manifold which is a Euclidean space and which locally is decomposable into a direct product \(M^4=\mathbb {R}^3\times \mathbb {R}\) of a physical space \(\mathbb {R}^3_\mathbf{x }\) of motions, and a time axis \(\mathbb {R}_t\).
