# On limiting field strengths in gravitation

@article{Sabbata1993OnLF, title={On limiting field strengths in gravitation}, author={Venzo de Sabbata and C A Sivaram}, journal={Foundations of Physics Letters}, year={1993}, volume={6}, pages={561-570} }

We consider through the equivalence principle the existence of maximal and minimal field strengths in gravitation. We explore the consequences for gravitational collapse and for explaining the rotation curve of galaxies without invoking dark matter. Other interesting implications like maximal size of planetary systems are outlined.
