Einstein's Violation of General Covariance

Einstein rejected the differential law of energy-momentum conservation $ T^{\mu\nu}_{;\nu} = 0 $. In doing so, he violated the principle of general covariance. Here, we prove the conservation law $ T^{\mu\nu}_{;\nu} = 0 $ and discuss its significance for general relativity.

Manifestly Covariant Relativity

According to Einstein's principle of general covariance, all laws of nature are to be expressed by manifestly covariant equations. In recent work, the covariant law of energy-momentum conservation

Energy and momentum in general relativity

AbstractIn general relativity, conservation of energy and momentum is expressed by an equation of the form∂ℐμν/∂xν= 0, whereℐμν≡√−gTμν represents the total energy, momentum, and stress. This equation

Introduction to the Theory of Relativity

THE number of systematic treatises on relativity is not unduly large. This is partly because, since the first few years after Einstein's announcement of the 'general' theory in 1917, it has undergone
