What's wrong with physics, why bother with URMT?

With the imminent release of the third book

Unity Root Matrix Theory
Mathematical and Physical Advances Volume I

http://www.urmt.org

which puts some physical teeth to the mathematics, it is time to
explain how and why I think we need a discrete formulation of Physics:
This is a start...

This third book in the series on Unity Root Matrix Theory (URMT)
advances the subject into mainstream physics by detailing how it
relates to such topics as the classical harmonic oscillator, The
Special Theory of Relativity and some related cosmology

The book starts by extending URMT's mathematical methods to handle
arbitrary real and complex vectors, and then proceeds to show how
oscillators and Special Relativity can be formulated in the language
of URMT. Among the results is the embodiment of Einstein's
relativistic energy-momentum equation in a 5D formulation, with mass
emergent from a scalar potential. There are also some cosmological
implications stemming from a relativistic Doppler solution, notably
the Hubble expansion law - all quite an achievement given URMT's
origins in number theory and Diophantine equations. Additionally,
using URMT's unique variational methods, a 4D formulation naturally
produces a quadratic, harmonic potential, with a consequent solution
for the harmonic oscillator. Other topics include Lorentz
transformations and some mechanics. The book finishes by showing how
these real and complex formulations can be recast in integers, i.e. a
