Teleparallel gravity can be seen as a gauge theory for the translation group. As such, its fundamental field is neither the tetrad nor the metric, but a gauge potential assuming values in the Lieâ€¦ (More)

In the general relativistic description of gravitation, geometry replaces the concept of force. This is possible because of the universal character of free fall, and would break down in its absence.â€¦ (More)

Similarly to a Yangâ€“Mills propagating field, which must be nonlinear if it is to transport its own charge, only a nonlinear gravitational wave is able to transport energy and momentum. The secondâ€¦ (More)

A nonintegrable phase-factor global approach to gravitation is developed by using the similarity of teleparallel gravity with electromagnetism. The phase shifts of both the COW and the gravitationalâ€¦ (More)

This paper studies the damping coefficients of solid and porous disks in the context of their use as heave dampers in offshore structures. Results from forced heave oscillation experiments obtainedâ€¦ (More)

A nonintegrable phase-factor global approach to gravitation is developed by using the similarity of teleparallel gravity with electromagnetism. The phase shifts of both the COW and the gravitationalâ€¦ (More)

General relativity and quantum mechanics are conflicting theories. The seeds of discord are the fundamental principles on which these theories are grounded. General relativity, on one hand, is basedâ€¦ (More)

In Einstein's general relativity, geometry replaces the concept of force in the description of the gravitation interaction. Such an approach rests on the universality of free-fallâ€”the weakâ€¦ (More)
