Quantum formalism in gravitation quantitative application to the Titius-Bode law

  • R. Louise


Quantum conception of virtual energy exchange between masses leads to the Newton's law. A guide wave similar to the De Broglie's one (1923) is able to account quantitatively for the Titius-Bode law occurring in the planetary system as well as the satellite systems.
