O ct 2 00 3 Static post-Newtonian equivalence of GR and gravity with a dynamical preferred frame

  title={O ct 2 00 3 Static post-Newtonian equivalence of GR and gravity with a dynamical preferred frame},
  author={Christopher Eling and Ted Jacobson},
A generally covariant extension of general relativity (GR) in which a dynamical unit timelike vector field is coupled to the metric is studied in the asymptotic weak field limit of spherically symmetric static solutions. The two post-Newtonian parameters known as the Eddington-Robertson-Schiff parameters are found to be identical to those in the case of pure GR, except for some non-generic values of the coefficients in the Lagrangian.
