This paper emphasizes certain little known aspects of Einstein's general theory of relativity. Although these features are of minor theoretical importance, their understanding and use can lead to the generation and control of gravitational forces. Three distinctly different non-Newtonian gravitational forces are described. The research areas which might lead to methods for the control of gravitation are pointed out and guidelines for initial investigation into these areas are given.

Gravitomagnetic Barnett Effect
Using the linearized theory of general relativity, the gravitomagnetic analogue of the Barnett effect is derived. Further theoretical and experimental investigation is recommended, due to theExpand
Deviation of Large Scale Gravitoelectromagnetic Field in Post-Newtonian Approximation
In this work a study of the gravity is made using Einstein's equation in the post-Newtonian approach. This is a method to linearise the General Relativity indicated to treat non-relativistic objects.Expand
Gravity control propulsion: Towards a general relativistic approach
Evaluation of gravity control concepts should be examined with respect to currently known physical theories. In this work we study the hypothetical conversion of gravitational potential energy intoExpand
Covariant theory of gravitation in the framework of special relativity
Abstract.In this work, we study the magnetic effects of gravity in the framework of special relativity. Imposing covariance of the gravitational force with respect to the Lorentz transformations, weExpand
Gravimagnetic field, torsion, and gravitational shielding
SummaryMany arguments are given in support of the existence of a gravimagnetic field in nature. Its connection with torsion is elaborated. Some consequences of the existence of such a field forExpand
General Relativistic Gravity Machine using Electromagneto-Torsion Field
Some field propulsion systems are based on the solution of General Relativity Theory and are related to the connection between gravity and electromagnetic field. For example, Robert Forward proposedExpand
General relativistic gravity machine utilizing electromagnetic field
Robert Forward proposed a gravity machine according to the EinsteinÂ’s general relativity theory. But It requires ultra dense matter, which has the density of a dwarf star, to produce a thrust andExpand
Induction and Amplification of Non-Newtonian Gravitational Fields
One obtains a Maxwell-like structure of gravitation by applying the weak-field approximation to the well accepted theory of general relativity or by extending Newton's laws to time-dependen tExpand
Experimental detection of the gravitomagnetic London moment
It is well known that a rotating superconductor produces a magnetic field proportional to its angular velocity. The authors conjectured earlier, that in addition to this so-called London moment, alsoExpand
Maxwellian approximation to general relativity
The Einstein field equations and the geodesic equation have been written in a form which is analogous to the Maxwell-Lorentz equation of electromagnetism. The equations are valid for dust particlesExpand
