Nordström's theory in the light of the dualistic gravitation theory

  • M. N. Mahanta


It is shown that the recent dualistic theory of gravitation of the author can be regarded as equivalent to the Nordström theory (1913) supplemented by additional field variables. Such a point of view not only removes certain theoretical shortcomings of the Nordström theory, but also clarifies the relationship between this theory and the Einstein theory.
