On the Weak Field Approximation of Brans-Dicke Theory of Gravity

Abstract

It is shown that in the weak field approximation solutions of Brans-Dicke equations are simply related to the solutions General Relativity equations for the same matter distribution. A simple method is developed which permits to obtain Brans-Dicke solutions from Einstein solutions when both theories are considered in their linearized forms. To illustrate… (More)
