Multiple Time Dimensions

Andrew O'Neill Mellinger

Casual observation suggests a world of 3 large space dimensions and 1 large time dimension: a 3+1 dimensional spacetime. In seeking a unified description of the fundamental particle interactions, quantum field theorists regularly invoke additional compact space dimensions. We have, instead, explored the consequences of multiple time dimensions, in the context of classical relativity theory, as a means of elucidating the whyand what of 3+1 dimensional spacetime. We have tried, through computer modeling, to obtain a visualization of a 2+2 dimensional spacetime.
