Theoretical Foundation of Gravito-Electromagnetism: The Theory of Informatons

Authors: Antoine Acke

The theory of gravitoelectromagnetism (G.E.M.) - that assumes a perfect isomorphism between electromagnetism and gravitation - has been established by Oliver Heaviside (1) and Oleg Jefimenko (2). Within the framework of general relativity, G.E.M. has been discussed by a number of authors (3). It is shown that the gravitational analogs to Maxwell's equations (the G.E.M. equations) can be derived from the Einstein field equation. In this paper we propose an alternative theoretical foundation of G.E.M.: we explain the gravitational interactions, we identify the physical quantities that play a role in that context, and we mathematically derive the laws of gravitoelectromagnetism .
