Gravitational Periodicity from Special Relativity

Authors: Jack Bidnik

Abstract © US 2015 Gravitational Periodicity from Special Relativity by Jack Bidnik This is my derivation of the sinusoidal variation of planetary orbits by means of relativistic relative momentum of two masses. It may be considered Chapter 3 of my paper Gravitational Forces Revisited (GFR), where I derived a force, Fm, which I analogized to Newton's force of gravity by the equation Fm = Gs Mm /r^2, where Gs is a velocity dependent variable. Here I derive the same force, but I use a separate method to show that it is the force of gravity. This chapter can be seen as a completely independent, stand alone, method of deriving gravity from Special Relativity, and that Fm is both a necessary and a sufficient condition for the gravitational force.
