The Infinite Universe Of Einstein And Newton

Overview

After developing his Law of Gravitation, Newton came to believe that the Universe was infinite and homogeneous on a large scale. Einstein's original intuition was similar to Newton's in that he thought our Universe was static, infinite, isotropic and homogeneous. The field equations of Einstein's general relativity are solved for this universe. One of the three solutions found, the "infinite closed universe", traps light within a finite portion of the universe. This infinite closed universe model is shown to fit ...

Overview

After developing his Law of Gravitation, Newton came to believe that the Universe was infinite and homogeneous on a large scale. Einstein's original intuition was similar to Newton's in that he thought our Universe was static, infinite, isotropic and homogeneous. The field equations of Einstein's general relativity are solved for this universe. One of the three solutions found, the "infinite closed universe", traps light within a finite portion of the universe. This infinite closed universe model is shown to fit all the data of the Hubble diagram better than the Big Bang, and it fits the recent supernova data without having to postulate mysterious dark energy.

Using general relativity and the physics which evolved from Newton, the author finds the force of gravity between two point particles. Utilizing this force and the infinite closed universe model, the net force of gravity on a point particle, in arbitrary motion, due to the uniform mass distribution of the universe is calculated by an integration. This net force of gravity is found to be equal to the force of inertia. These calculations explain Newton's First Law, Newton's Second Law, and the equivalence of inertial and gravitational mass. In addition, by the extension of Einstein's general relativity to two-body interactions Newton's Third Law is elicited.

These results show that the cosmological redshift and the physics that we know are likely the result of the uniform mass distribution of our infinite closed universe and gravity alone.

    Powerful Challege to Big Bang Theory

    Best Book in Ages, August 10, 2003 Ph. D. physicist, Barry Bruce, has written an astounding book - cosmologically uniting Newton, Mach, and Einstein while producing a breathtakingly superior fit to the Hubble red shift data. It is a conceptually and analytically powerful book - but also a well polished enjoyable read. My physics Ph.D. is in theoretical physics from Boston University 1986 . I found the book to be extremely competent, enjoyable to read, and to offer a far better fit to, and a conceptually much simpler explanation of , the cosmically oriented raw data. ( More natural than current cosmological theories. ) The theory accomplishes in addition a fundamental explanation / derivation of Newton's first, second, and third laws. Using Einstein's General Relativistic Equations, it unites in one theory aims of Einstein, Mach, and Newton at the foundational level. In this short book, Dr. Bruce first develops a Newtonian context for light emitted spherically from an origin ( atom or star ) and being gravitationally pulled on as it passes more and more matter. He then exactly and powerfully does a general relativistic analysis with surprisingly simple but potent consequences for cosmic theory.[ For those unaware that beams of nonparallel photons have nonzero rest mass,( and hence light spherically emitted may be pulled back towards its source by gravity ) see Yakov P. Terletskii's, book 'Paradoxes in the Theory of Relativity', pages 62-64, Plenum Press, New York, 1968.] Dr. Bruce gives a full general relativistic treatment of the consequences both cosmically and for the foundations of physics. This book is a must read not only for cosmologists but really for anyone deeply teaching classical or relativistic physics. Charles Leonard
