It is shown that, contrary to what is normally expected, it is possible to have angular-momentum effects on the geometry of space-time at the laboratory scale, much bigger than the purely Newtonian effects. This is due to the fact that the ratio between the angular momentum of a body and its mass, expressed as a length, is easily greater than the mass itself, again expressed as a length. 

An Approximated Solution of the Einstein Equations for a Rotating Body with Negligible Mass

The paper considers the problem of finding the metric of space time around a rotating, weakly gravitating body. Both external and internal metric tensors are consistently found, together with an

Light deflection and time delay in the gravitational field of a spinning mass

In this paper we consider the possibility of measuring the corrections induced by the square of the parameter a_g of the Kerr metric to the general relativistic deflection of electromagnetic waves

Some Comments on a Recently Derived Approximated Solution of the Einstein Equations for a Spinning Body with Negligible Mass

Recently, an approximated solution of the Einstein equations for a rotating body whose mass effects are negligible with respect to the rotational ones has been derived by Tartaglia. At first sight,

On the Lense-Thirring test with the Mars Global Surveyor in the gravitational field of Mars

I discuss some aspects of a recent frame-dragging test performed by exploiting the Root-Mean-Square (RMS) orbit-overlap differences of the out-of-plane component (N) of the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS)

Exact Solutions of Einstein's Field Equations

We examine various well known exact solutions available in the literature to investigate the recent criterion obtained in Negi and Durgapal [Gravitation and Cosmology7, 37 (2001)] which should be

THE basis of Mr. Heaviside's treatise is the inter-linked magnetic and electric circuits. This is taken from Maxwell, but it is much more fully developed, and the analogy between the electric and
