This work by Indiana University Professor Václav Hlavatý is based on 20 papers published by the author, based on the equations proposed by Einstein for his unified field theory. Prof. Hlavatý was able to test and prove the equations, making it possible to develop experiments to test if electromagnetism is the basis of matter, energy and gravity. Einstein corresponded frequently with Hlavatý before his death in 1955, believing that Hlavatý was one of a handful of mathematicians who could prove his theories.
