When the density of the body becomes large enough, general relativity predicts the formation of a black hole. The neutron stars of about 1.4 solar masses and the black holes are the final stage for the evolution of the massive … Read More
Dicke and Schiff established a framework for testing general relativity,  including through null experiments and using the physics of space exploration, electronics and condensed matter, such as the Pound-Rebka experiment and laser interferometry. The gravitational lens tests and the … Read More
The post Modern Tests of Relativistic Gravitational Theories appeared first on SetThings.
Presentation and comparison of the main causal theories of reference for proper names, and a proposal of a new approach based on the analogy of the causal chain of reference with the block chain from blockchain technology and Paul Ricœur’s … Read More
With the help of PPN formalism, gravity theories are confronted with the results of experiments in the solar system. The γ parameter in this formalism highlights the light deflection and the light delay. By calculations according to PPN, light deflection … Read More
The post Classic gravitational tests of post-Einsteinian theories appeared first on SetThings.
In a previous article, Philosophy of Blockchain Technology – Ontologies, (Sfetcu 2019) I talked about applying Paul Ricœur’s narrative theory in developing an ontology of blockchain technology. In this section I intend to highlight the idea of an analogy between … Read More
Clifford M. Will describes, in Theory and Experiment in Gravitational Physics,  the emergence of a new era for general relativity, testing and checking at very high levels of accuracy. In 1959, scientists at Lincoln Laboratories in Massachusetts bombarded the … Read More
The main problems faced by scientists in working with Big Data sets, highlighting the main ethical issues, taking into account the legislation of the European Union. After a brief Introduction to Big Data, the Technology section presents specific research applications. … Read More
Proliferation of post-Einsteinian gravitational theories Right after the elaboration and success of general relativity (GR), alternative theories for gravity began to appear, which can fall into four broad categories:  Bifurcated theories (with the Lakatosian hard core identical or very … Read More
The post Evaluation of post-Einsteinian gravitational theories through parameterized post-Newtonian formalism appeared first on SetThings.
Michael Devitt develops a hybrid causal theory of non-empty proper names and certain singular terms that semantically resemble them. He considers that the use of a name designates an object not by virtue of the different information we know about … Read More
The essential principle of coordination in GR is the principle of equivalence, including a negative heuristic. The argument “is not that all reference frames are equivalent, but that the classical coordination of uniform motion in a straight line with the … Read More
