    Jilan liked post by btr On thread : The God's eye global gist of general relativity
    On this cave business... If you have a ball of uniform density and radius R_1, and create a ball-shaped cavity within it (anywhere within it) with radius R_2 < R_1, then in Newtonian gravity the...

    In the words of Sheldon Cooper, "this is a classic example of Münchhausen's Trilemma: either the reason is predicated on a series of sub-reasons, leading to an infinite regression; or it tracks back...

    Beer w/Straw liked post by btr On thread : Non-inertial clock orbiting an inertial clock: "Do moving clocks always run slowly?"
    The \Large command (and its friends like \small) don't work in math mode, unfortunately, even in proper LaTeX. You can cheat, though, using an mbox like this: Mark-up: \mbox{\Large\(...

    Markus Hanke liked post by btr On thread : Gravity resulting from lensing
    Not bonkers, no, but the scalar aspect is certainly inconsistent with the full theory of General Relativity. To pick a simple example, with a scalar theory of gravitation the gravitational waves...

    Hal on Earth liked post by btr On thread : Non-inertial clock orbiting an inertial clock: "Do moving clocks always run slowly?"
    Hello, Hal on Earth. In Special Relativity, the proper time an observer experiences is given by a kind of four-dimensional analogue of "length". Essentially, you use a modified version of...

    Markus Hanke liked post by btr On thread : Does Dark Matter repel other dark matter?
    I'd say that gravity-only, non-CDM models for the data have been considered in great depth. There is a very large family of dark-matter-free, gravity-only theories which can reproduce most, if not...

    Jilan liked post by btr On thread : Trigonometric function and Gaussian function integration
    It isn't that messy, it turns out. There is a neat trick, but the justification of it requires some advanced concepts like contour integrals in the complex plane. I will just give an overview. ...

    pienapple27 liked post by btr On thread : Not so smart question about linear stuff
    If you want to talk about two things (say, x and y) increasing together in some sense, you probably have in mind that both quantities depend on some third variable (call it t, say; perhaps t...

    Jilan liked post by btr On thread : Does Newton's Third Law apply to electrostatic forces in Curved Space-Time?
    It might be a good strategy to start by considering the much simpler case of two "stationary" world-lines (i.e. field lines of the timelike Killing vector) that are extremely close together, and very...
