In this paper we discuss on recent attempts aimed at demonstrating that, contrary to well-known results, the second clock effect (SCE) does not take place in generalized Weyl spaces – spaces with arbitrary nonmetricity – denoted here as W 4 spaces. These attempts include Weyl gauge theories of gravity, as well as the symmetric teleparallel theories (STTs). Our approach to this issue is based on the adoption of Weyl gauge symmetry (WGS) which is a manifest symmetry of the basic laws of Weyl…

Weyl covariance, second clock effect and proper time in theories of symmetric teleparallel gravity

We give a new prescription of parallel transport of a vector tangent to a curve which is invariant under both of a local general coordinate and a Weyl transformations. Thus since the length of



Lost in translation: The Abelian affine connection (in the coincident gauge)

The simplest, i.e. the Abelian, i.e. the commutative, i.e. the integrable, i.e. the flat and torsion-free, i.e. the symmetric teleparallel affine connection has been considered in many recent works

The scalar-tensor theory of gravitation

The scalar-tensor theory of gravitation is one of the most popular alternatives to Einstein's theory of gravitation. This book provides a clear and concise introduction to the theoretical ideas and
