On the Theory of Gravitation

Part of the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science book series (BSPS, volume 250)

In a recently published paper A. Einstein1 proposed the hypothesis that the speed of light (c) depends on the gravitational potential (Φ). In the following note, I develop a theory of the gravitational force which satisfies the principle of relativity and derive from it a relation between c and Φ, which in first approximation is equivalent to Einstein's. This theory attributes values to the densities of the energy and the energy flux of the gravitational field which differ from those hitherto assumed.
