Excluded Volume for Flat Galaxy Rotation Curves in Newtonian Gravity and General Relativity

A modification of General Relativity, motivated by the Newtonian solutions, that are equivalent to a charge void, is partially defined and discussed in terms of a least action principle.

Gravitational Lensing in a Model of Nonlinear Electrodynamics: The Case for Electrically and Magnetically Charged Compact Objects

The astrophysical applicability of the electrically and magnetically charged black hole solutions obtained in a model of nonlinear electrodynamics proposed by Kruglov is investigated. Theoretical

An Approach to Gravitational Radiation by a Method of Spin Coefficients

A new approach to general relativity by means of a tetrad or spinor formalism is presented. The essential feature of this approach is the consistent use of certain complex linear combinations of

Empty-Space Generalization of the Schwarzschild Metric

A new class of empty‐space metrics is obtained, one member of this class being a natural generalization of the Schwarzschild metric. This latter metric contains one arbitrary parameter in addition to

On the physical meaning of the NUT parameter

Exact interpretation of the NUT parameter becomes possible when a static Schwarzchild mass is immersed in a stationary, source free electromagnetic universe. We explain this on the basis of our

Bending of light in conformal Weyl gravity

We reexamine the bending of light issue associated with the metric of the static, spherically symmetric solution of Weyl gravity discovered by Mannheim and Kazanas (1989). To this end we employ the

Interacting electromagnetic shock waves in general relativity

It is shown that the continuity conditions of Lichnerowicz must generally be relaxed in favour of the O'Brien-Synge conditions in the case of shock electromagnetic waves. This is in particular true
