GRAVITATIONAL ENERGY-MOMENTUM - THE EINSTEIN PSEUDOTENSOR REEXAMINED

Abstract:

By using a suitable two-point scalar field, a covariant formulation of the Einstein pseudotensor is given. A unique choice of scalar field is made possible by examining the role of linear and angular momentum in their correct geometric context. It is shown that, contrary to many text-book statements, linear momentum is not generated by infinitesimal coordinate transformations on space-time. Use is made of the nonintersecting lifted geodesies on the tangent bundle, TM, to space-time, to define...
