This paper describes general relativity at the gravito-electromagnetic precision level as a constrained field theory. In this novel formulation, the gravity field comprises two auxiliary fields, a static matter field and a moving matter field. Equations of motion, continuity equation, energy conservation, field tensor, energy-momentum tensor, constraints, and Lagrangian formulation are presented as a simple and unified formulation that can be useful for future research.

A complementary covariant approach to gravito-electromagnetism
From a previous paper where we proposed a description of general relativity within the gravito-electromagnetic limit, we propose an alternative modified gravitational theory. As in the former
Superconductors and Gravity
We review and discuss some recent developments on the unconventional interaction between superconducting systems and the local gravitational field. While it is known that gravitational perturbations


The linear theory of gravitation in the radiation gauge
A global gauge for the linear theory of gravity is given which avoids the (In(R))/R problem of harmonic coordinates. Consequently it is possible to do 1/R expansions for precisely those null sources
Covariant theory of gravitation in the framework of special relativity
Abstract.In this work, we study the magnetic effects of gravity in the framework of special relativity. Imposing covariance of the gravitational force with respect to the Lorentz transformations, we
Gravitomagnetism in Teleparallel Gravity
The assumption that matter charges and currents could generate fields, which are called, in analogy with electromagnetism, gravitoeletric and gravitomagnetic fields, dating from the origins of
Gravito-electromagnetism versus electromagnetism
The properties of the gravito-magnetic interaction in non-stationary conditions are discussed. A direct deduction of the equivalent Faraday?Henry law is given. A comparison is made between
Gravitomagnetic Effects
The paper summarizes the most important effects in Einsteinian gravitomagnetic fields related to propagating light rays, moving clocks and atoms, orbiting objects, and precessing spins. Emphasis is
A gravitational energy–momentum and the thermodynamic description of gravity
A proposal for the gravitational energy–momentum tensor, known in the literature as the square root of Bel–Robinson tensor (SQBR), is analyzed in detail. Being constructed exclusively from the Weyl
Nonlocal Gravity: The General Linear Approximation
solutions of the corresponding field equations are discussed. It is shown that nonlocality, with a characteristic length scale of order 1 kpc, simulates dark matter in the linear regime while
Gravito-electromagnetic Effects of Massive Rings
The Einstein field equations in linear post-Newtonian approximation can be written in analogy with electromagnetism, in the so-called gravito-electromagnetic formalism. We use this analogy to study
Quantized gravitoelectromagnetism theory at finite temperature
The Gravitoelectromagnetism (GEM) theory is considered in a Lagrangian formulation using the Weyl tensor components. A perturbative approach to calculate processes at zero temperature has been used.
Maxwell form of the linear theory of gravitation
A treatment of the linear theory is given that closely parallels the usual E and B formulation of electromagnetic theory. In Part I, an introductory exposition of gravitational radiation is
