# The Measurement of the Light Deflection from Jupiter: Theoretical Interpretation

@article{Kopeikin2003TheMO, title={The Measurement of the Light Deflection from Jupiter: Theoretical Interpretation}, author={S. Kopeikin}, journal={arXiv: Astrophysics}, year={2003} }

Equations of light, propagating from quasar to observer on earth, are integrated in the time-dependent gravitational field of the solar system by making use of either retarded or advanced solutions of the Einstein field equations. This technique allows to separate explicitly the effects associated with the propagation of gravity from those associated with light in the integral expression for the relativistic time delay of light. We prove that the relativistic correction to the Shapiro time… Expand

It turns out that the v/c effects are too small to have been measured in the recent experiment involving Jupiter and quasar J0842+1845 that was used to measure the speed of gravity. Expand

Unified Geometrodynamics: A Complementarity of Newton’s and Einstein’s Gravity

We explore the idea that gravitational interaction can be described by instantaneous inter-particle potentials. This idea is in full accord with relativistic quantum theory. In particular, it… Expand
