Relativity and Cosmology


Introducing Distance and Measurement in General Relativity: Changes for the Standard Tests and the Cosmological Large-Scale

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers

Relativistic motion in the gravitational field of a massive body is governed by the external metric of a spherically symmetric extended object. Consequently, any solution for the point-mass is inadequate for the treatment of such motions since it pertains to a fictitious object. I therefore develop herein the physics of the standard tests of General Relativity by means of the generalised solution for the field external to a sphere of incompressible homogeneous fluid.
