The gravitational field of static spherically symmetric bodies
- 51 Downloads
The study of a previously proposed theory of gravitation [Petry, W. (1979).Gen. Rel. Grav.,10, 599; (1981).Ibid,13, 865] is continued. The field equations are given in a simple covariant form. For a perfect fluid with pressure the static spherically symmetric solutions of the gravitation theory are studied. Inertial and gravitational mass are identical. The solutions agree with the corresponding results of the theory of general relativity up to high order in the coupling constant. Under some “natural” conditions the solutions of a static spherically symmetric body are not singular.
