The formalism of the translational-rotational motion of a rigid body in the field of a gravitating and radiating centre

  • A. G. Mavraganis


The author's aim is to formulate the problem of motion of a rigid body acted upon by the Newtonian attraction of a particle and the repulsive force of this particle radiation. These forces are taken to be proportional to each other in a way which extends this connection from the point-like description of a body to its actual picture.
