The cosmological principle and a generalization of Newton's theory of gravitation
- 56 Downloads
Using the notion of Galilei manifolds a geometric formulation of the cosmological principle for the prerelativistic theory of gravitation is presented. This is applied to a generalization of the Newton-Cartan theory which admits solutions with a curved Galilei structure. Furthermore, the limit relation between this theory and some relativistic theories is discussed.
