Isotropic One-Way Times of Flight of Laser Pulses and Einstein's "compressible fluid" Space
We present measurements of one-way times of flight of 25 fsec laser pulses, along a given distance, in different directions in space. Using autocorrelation, a technique that dispels the need forExpand
Gravity and the Conservation of Energy
1 IntroductionAlbert Einstein asserted that his field equations are in essencea restatement of the conservation of energy and momentum[1, pp. 145–149]. Every solution of the field equations,Expand
Stellar equilibrium vs. gravitational collapse
The idea of gravitational collapse can be traced back to the first solution of Einstein’s equations, but in these early stages, compelling evidence to support this idea was lacking. Furthermore,Expand
Five Fallacies Used to Link Black Holes to Einstein's Relativistic Space-Time
Einstein [1] sets out field equations that describe a matterfree field. A German military officer, Karl Schwarzschild [2], shortly before he died, derived a solution of the field equations for aExpand
Derivation of generalized einstein's equations of gravitation in some noninertial reference frames based on the theory of vacuum mechanics
When solving Einstein's equations for an isolated system of masses, V. Fock introduced a harmonic reference frame and obtained an unambiguous solution. Further, he concluded that there existed aExpand
Generating Spherically Symmetric Static Anisotropic Fluid Solutions of Einstein's Equations from Hydrostatic Equilibrium
For static fluid spheres, the condition of hydrostatic equilibrium is given by the generalized Tolman–Oppenheimer–Volkoff (TOV) equation, a Riccati equation in the radial pressure. For a perfectExpand
John Wheeler Between Cold Matter and Frozen Stars: The Road towards Black Holes
One of the truly decisive figures in the flourishing of general relativity that began in the 1950s, the eminent physicist John A. Wheeler (1911-2008) is best known today to the general public becauseExpand
Metric inertia for eddy densities of nonlocal matter-space
ABSTRACT Monistic thermomechanics of eddy mater-space with metric stresses of Maxwellian type and inelastic metric waves can be developed for purely kinetic densities of the nonlocal mass-energyExpand
Multilayer Spherical Stellar Clusters with Uniform Density
Various solutions of the kinetic equation for the equilibrium of a gravitating sphere of uniform density with a quadratic gravitational potential and a linear dependence of gravitational force onExpand
