An Alternative to the Schwarzschild Solution of GTR

Authors: Andrew Thomas Holster

In the first part we analyze a novel metric for a spherically symmetric mass distribution, here called the K-gravity metric. This has a close formal similarity to the Schwarzschild metric, but has quite distinct properties, including infinitely dispersed mass, and lack of an event horizon. In the second part we propose that this may be taken as a general alternative solution for physical gravity within GTR, resulting from an alternative interpretation of the stress-energy tensor, which is no longer 0 for empty space, and we consider the empirical differences with standard Schwarzschild gravity. We propose a novel test of GTR is in order, to test this against the usual Schwarzschild solution in the solar system.
