geometrodynamics

[¦jē·ō‚me·trə·dī′nam·iks]
(relativity)
A theory involving only geometry which attempts to combine gravitational and electromagnetic theory; characterized by a multiply connected space-time manifold containing structures, descriptively called wormholes, associated with electric charge.

The geometrodynamic approach to General Relativity is to assume some underlying geometry that is locally special relativity and posit that this geometric structure and its associated transformation laws are the natural way to look at the world.
Wheeler's geometrodynamic concept [1], such a variety of types and mechanisms of interaction seems strange and unreasonable.
Macro-analogies and gravitation in the micro-world: further elaboration of Wheeler's model of geometrodynamics.
Wheeler's geometrodynamic concept, in which microparticles are considered as vortical oscillating deformations on a non-unitary coherent surface and the idea about transitions between distant regions of space in the form of Wheeler's "wormholes", made it possible to substantiate the existence of closed structures (micro- and macrocontours) acting at various levels of organization of matter [1-3].
Wheeler's geometrodynamic concept, in which microparticles are considered as vortical oscillating deformations on a non-unitary coherent surface, was earlier used by the author to construct model objects of the microcosm [1, 2].
This work is an attempt to add a physically descriptive interpretation to some phenomena of the micro-world using both topological images of Wheeler's geometrodynamic idea and further macro-world analogies.
It is necessary to outline a survey illustration of our model worked out in the spirit of Wheeler's geometrodynamics.
