Abstract

Space-time does an excellent job of describing a "when" and "where" of an event; however it
fails to describe "what" was involved. Normally this is achieved by including quantum fields
with their own labels and associated properties. Conservation of these properties is then
achieved according to what experiment dictates. We propose to add additional coordinates
to space-time that describe the "what" which is missing. We choose these coordinates to
be complex anti-commuting Lorentz scalars and attach various quantum numbers to them
as indicated by experimental observation. With 5 such coordinates we can accommodate all
known particles in the Standard Model and can reduce the number of fundamental parameters
involved. We also develop formalism to deal with the inclusion of these coordinates into
general relativity, and look at the cases of 1 and 2 property coordinates. This results in
the Einstein-Maxwell equations for 1 coordinate and the Einstein-Yang Mills equations for 2
coordinates. The Mathematica code used in this thesis, which was essential for the algebraic
simplification required, is available from the UTAS digital repository. The documentation
for the code is given in Appendix B.
