  author={Athanasios Bakopoulos and Panagiota Kanti},
  journal={General Relativity and Gravitation},
In this work, we focus on the theory of gravito-electromagnetism (GEM)—the theory that describes the dynamics of the gravitational field in terms of quantities met in electromagnetism—and we propose two novel forms of metric perturbations. The first one is a generalisation of the traditional GEM ansatz, and succeeds in reproducing the whole set of Maxwell’s equations even for a dynamical vector potential $$\mathbf {A}$$A. The second form, the so-called alternative ansatz, goes beyond that… Expand
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

Black holes and wormholes in the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet generalized theories of gravity
In this Ph.D. dissertation we study the emergence of black-hole and wormhole solutions in the framework of the Einstein-scalar-Gauss-Bonnet (EsGB) theory. Particularly we study a family of theoriesExpand
A Novel Covariant Approach to Gravito-Electromagnetism

We construct a class of knot solutions of the gravitoelectromagnetic (GEM) equations in vacuum in the linearized gravity approximation by analogy with the Rañada-Hopf fields. For these solutions, theExpand

By mass-energy equivalence, the gravitational field has a relativistic mass density proportional to its energy density. I seek to better understand this mass of the gravitational field by askingExpand
On Maxwell Equations for Gravitational Field
For explicitly time depending mass density which satisfies a continuity equation, it is shown that Maxwell-like equations for gravitational field follow naturally without any need of GeneralExpand


From GEM to electromagnetism
In the first part of the present work, we focus on the theory of gravitoelectromagnetism (GEM), and we derive the full set of equations and constraints that the GEM scalar and vector potentials oughtExpand

A tensor description of perturbative Einsteinian gravity about an arbitrary background spacetime is developed. By analogy with the covariant laws of electromagnetism in spacetime,Expand
Gravito-electromagnetic analogies
We reexamine and further develop different gravito-electromagnetic analogies found in the literature, and clarify the connection between them. Special emphasis is placed in two exact physicalExpand
We develop and apply a fully covariant 1 + 3 electromagnetic analogy for gravity. The free gravitational field is covariantly characterized by the Weyl gravito-electric and gravito-magnetic spatialExpand
Note concerning gravitation and electromagnetism
The Maxwell equations for gravitational fields previously assumed by Sciama are derived from elementary considerations. The Lagrangian for a gravitating mass in a non-inertial coordinate systemExpand

Analogy between general relativity and electromagnetism for slowly moving particles in weak gravitational fields
Starting from the equations of general relativity, equations similar to those of electromagnetic theory are derived. It is assumed that the particles are slowly moving (v≪c), and the gravitationalExpand
