They cover the general relativistic two-body problem, Hamiltonian dynamics of spinning compact binaries through high post-Newtonian approximations, the covariant theory of the post-Newtonian equations of motion of extended bodies, the DSX-framework, the general relativistic theory of light propagation in multipolar gravitational fields, the back-reaction problem in cosmology, and post-Newtonian approximations in cosmology, ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
Anderson believed that the covariant theory limited the possible forms of physics laws, and not all theories of relativistic physics required Lorentz transformation.
Recently, the author, in terms of his 5D fully covariant theory of gravitation, has quantitatively determined the dielectric constant of the polarized vacuum in accordance with the charge-mass ratio of a charged object [14].
The covariant theory of gravitation (CTG) appeared in 2009 [1], as a consequence of the relativistic generalization of the Lorentz-invariant theory of gravitation (LITG).
As shown herein, the origin of the problem is the use of the general covariant theory of measurement.
