[RPG] Can a 3rd Edition Game use 5th Edition Characters


I have recently purchased the 5e players book and I really like the character system in 5e but my usual DM likes to play 3e and I was wondering, are these compatible? Can I use a 5e character in their 3e game?

The rules are, despite having similar names for things and some similarities in implementation, completely separate. They do not work together, and a campaign has to choose which edition to use.
