Abstract

A review of the Kaluza-Klein formulation is provided, with a particular emphasis on the geometrization issue. The failure to reproduce quantum numbers of particles and the appearance of huge mass terms are outlined. The possibility to solve these points by an extended approach based on an averaging procedure is discussed.
