**The metron model: Elements and initial computations
of a unified deterministic theory of fields, particles and physical constants**

**Abstract:**

A unified deterministic theory of field and particles is developed
in which the wave-particle paradox of microphysics is resolved through
the postulated existence of particles, in the classical objective sense,
which carry, in addition to the classical gravitational and electromagnetic
far fields, periodic far fields satisfying the de Broglie relations. The
particles are derived as soliton-type solutions (metrons) of the Einstein
vacuum equations in a higher (at least eight) dimensional space. The theory
is fully time symmetric, thereby circumventing Bell’s theorem on the non-existence
of deterministic hidden variable theories (which rests on the existence
of an arrow of time). All fields, particles, forces and physical
constants are derived from the single equation RLM (Ricci tensor) = 0.
The gauge symmetries of the Standard Model follow from the geometrical
symmetries of the metron solutions. Preliminary computations of metron
solutions in the form of a coupled system of wave-mode, wave-guide and
forced-wave fields are presented.
