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

On the speed of gravity and the jupiter/quasar measurement
I present the theory and analysis behind the experiment by Fomalont and Kopeikin involving Jupiter and quasar J0842 + 1845 that purported to measure the speed of gravity. The computation of the v{subExpand

TLDR
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
Newton claimed the influence of gravity is instantaneous; Einstein insisted no influence could propagate faster than the speed of light. Recent experiments to test the speed of gravity have beenExpand
A Hamiltonian approach to quantum 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, itExpand
Relativistic Quantum Dynamics: A non-traditional perspective on space, time, particles, fields, and action-at-a-distance
This book is an attempt to build a consistent relativistic quantum theory of interacting particles. In the first part of the book "Quantum electrodynamics" we follow rather traditional approach toExpand
Very long baseline interferometry: accuracy limits and relativistic tests
Abstract We present a review on relativistic effects and best estimates of the relativistic PPN parameter γ obtained by analysis of data from the International VLBI Service for Geodesy and AstrometryExpand
Virtual Gravity and the Duality of Reality
It is shown that a hypothesis about gravity having a virtual cause implies there are two primary reference frames, a reality and a functional virtual reality and an equivalence principle relating theExpand
