In a new theory called Dynamic Theory of Gravity, the gravitational potential is is
derived from gauge relations and has a different form than the classical Newtonian
potential. In the same theory an analytical expression for the pressure is derived from the
equation of the hydronamic equilibrium which is solved for a star of constant density and
the results are compared with those of Newtonian gravity. Changes then in the central
pressure and radius are also calculated and finally a redshift calculation is performed so
that the dynamic gravity effects if any might be shown to be of some detectabe
magnitude.

We propose a derivation of the empirical Weinberg relation for the mass of an elementary
particle and in an inflationary type of universe. Our derivation produces the standard
well known Weinberg relation for the mass of an elementary particle, along with an extra
term which depends on the inflationary potential, as well as Hubble's constant. The
derivation is based on Zeldovich's result for the cosmological constant Λ, in the context
of quantum field theory. The extra term can be understood as a small correction to the
mass of the elementary particle due to inflation. This term also enables us to calculate,
the initial value of the field φ_{O} for two kinds of potentials chosen, which makes
Weinberg's relation possible. Closed and flat and open universes give the mass of the
particles close to the mass of a pion, 140 MeV/c_{2} or as the one also predicted by
Weinberg's relation.

Recent evidence suggests that the fine-structure constant α=e^{2}/h bar*c, a measure
of the strength of the electromagnetic interaction between photons and electrons, is
slowly increasing over cosmological timescales.
High-resolution measurements of quasar spectra suggest that there has been a
variation Δα/α =-0.72 ± 0.18x10^{-5} over the past 6-10 Gyr.To model this, we
propose variability in the speed of light that produces a cosmological
time |αdot/α| = 10^{-15} and 10^{-16} yr^{-1} at z = 3 which also agrees with the
observational spectral data.

This reading expounds with expediency on the recently proposed Azimuthally Symmetric Theory
of Gravitation (ASTG) set-up earlier. There-in, the ASTG was set up and it was demonstrated
that it is capable (amongst others solar anomalies) of explaining the precession of the
perihelion of solar planets. In the second reading, it was shown that this theory is capable - in
principle; of explaining outflows as a repulsive gravitational phenomenon. In the present, we
show that the ASTG is capable of explaining the puzzling observations of flyby anomalies vis,
anomalous asymptotic speed increases at the perigee and the speed changes occurring to the osculating
hyperbolic speed excess. It is shown that these flyby anomalies are a natural occurrence
in the ASTG. We derive a modified formula of the empirical formula proposed by Anderson et
al., which up to now has no foundational basis except that experience suggest it. It is seen that
the ASTG can in principle explain the Pioneer Anomaly. To say for sure the ASTG is the reason
for the Pioneer Anomaly, there is need to obtain the complete set of the Pioneer ephemerides.

General Relativity predicts the existence of relativistic corrections to the static Newtonian
potential which can be calculated and verified experimentally. The idea leading to quantum
corrections at large distances is that of the interactions of massless particles which only
involve their coupling energies at low energies. In this short paper we attempt to propose
the Sagnac intrerferometric technique as a way of detecting the relativistic correction
suggested for the Newtonian potential, and thus obtaining an estimate for phase difference
using a satellite orbiting at an altitude of 250 km above the surface.

A theory has been developed of an auxiliary relativistic gravitational field, which operates
in conjunction with General Relativity gravity and accounts for the empirical success of
Milgrom's modified Newtonian dynamics theory. Remarkable links between this astronomical
theory and atomic physics have been discovered. Resonant, standing-wave properties of the
field encourage the formation of flat rotation curves, bar or spiral structures and quantised
galactic rings. Gravitational lensing due to this field is also significant. The angular
momentum proportional to mass-squared relationship observed in galaxies is attributed to
this field selecting a preferred galactic rotation velocity.

Absolute radial positions of the main features in Saturn's ring system have been calculated by
adapting the quantum theory of atomic spectra. Fine rings superimposed upon broad rings are found
to be covered by a harmonic series of the form N α A(r)1/2, where N and A are integers. Fourier
analysis of the ring system shows that the spectral amplitude fits a response profile which is
characteristic of a resonant system. Rings of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune also obey the same
rules. Involvement of the atomic fine structure constant throughout implies the existence of a
real quantisation force linking gravitation and atomic theories.

It is considered whether or not recent ultra high energy cosmic ray
observations hint at the possibility that the unaccounted for higher energy
rays have become dark matter.
