VOL. 19 | 1989 New Kaluza-Klein theory

Abstract

We investigate supersymmetric Kaluza-Klein theory for a realistic unification theory. To account for chiral phenomenology of low energy physics, the Kaluza-Klein world must be of even dimensions, and for a theory beyond ten dimensions, we must introduce extra time-like dimension. However, we can avoid massless ghosts in 4-dimensional spacetime after spontaneous compactification of the ground state, and the cosmological constant is zero.
