Spatial curvature as a distorted mapping of Euclidean space

  • A. Chubykalo UnidadAcadémica de Física, Universidad Autónoma de Zacatecas, A.P. C-580, Zacatecas
Keywords: the curvature of space, the mapping of spaces, the Big Bang.


The article makes an attempt to understand the essence of the curvature of space-time in general relativity. To clarify the physical meaning, a mapping method is used, based on the analogy with the philosophical categories “phenomenon-essence-observer”. It is shown that curvilinear space can exist only inside the Euclidean space. It is also shown that the interpretation of the phenomenon called the “Big Bang” is incorrect.
