Gravitation as a pressure force: a scalar ether theory

  title={Gravitation as a pressure force: a scalar ether theory},
  author={M. Arminjon},
  journal={arXiv: General Physics},
If the presence of a gravitational field breaks the Lorentz symmetry valid for special relativity, an "absolute motion" might be detectable. We summarize a scalar theory of gravity with a such "ether", which starts from a tentative interpretation of gravity as a pressure force. The theory also admits that our physical standards of space and time are affected by gravitation similarly as they are affected by a uniform motion. General motion is governed by an extension of Newton's second law to… Expand
Zero-Point Energy and the Emergence of Gravity: Two Hypotheses
Building on the results of experiments and speculations arising from his earlier collaborations as well as proposals from the theoretical work of others, the author suggests that gravity emerges as aExpand


The post-Newtonian equations of hydrodynamics in general relativity
The standard Eulerian equations of hydrodynamics are generalized to take into account, consistently with Einstein's field equations, all effects of order 1/c. It is further shown that theseExpand
Ether and Relativity
The relative retardation of clocks, predicted by the restricted theory of relativity, demands our recognition of the causal significance of absolute velocities. This demand is also implied by theExpand

Accurate experiments have shown that the local inertial frame is the one with respect to which the distant parts of the universe are non-rotating. This coincidence, first noticed by Newton, later ledExpand
It is shown how the exact conservation laws of general relativity, expressed in terms of the symmetric energy-momentum complex of Landau and Lifshitz, can be used to determine the various conservedExpand
The Theory of Relativity
THE earlier portion of Dr. Carmichael's book is a reprint of the first edition, which received notice in NATURE for March 12, 1914. The later pages, which are grouped together under one large chapterExpand
General relativity: Relative standard mass, momentum, energy and gravitational field in a general system of reference
SummaryIn this paper we show that the equations of the motion of a free test particle in General Relativity, with respect to any physical system of reference, can always have the classicalExpand
Test theories of special relativity
We review the Edwards transformation, and investigate the Robertson transformation and the Mansouri-Sexl (ms) transformation. It is shown that thems transformation is a generalization of theExpand
The Many Faces of Gravitoelectromagnetism
The numerous ways of introducing spatial gravitational forces are fit together in a single framework enabling their interrelationships to be clarified. This framework is then used to treat theExpand
On the thermodynamics of matter creation in cosmology
Abstract The recent phenomenological approach to the process of matter creation in the cosmological context, as proposed by Prigogine and collaborators, is reexamined within a manifestly covariantExpand
The Constancy of the Velocity of Light
The principle of the constancy of the velocity of light has generally been given a prominent place in discussions of the restricted theory of relativity. Yet lack of any clear and unambiguousExpand
