Newtonian Gravity Reformulated

With reference to MOND we propose a reformulation of Newton’s theory of gravity in the sense of the static electrodynamics introducing a “material” quantity in analogy to the dielectric “constant”. We propose that this quantity is induced by vacuum polarizations generated by the gravitational field itself. Herewith the flat rotation curves of the spiral galaxies can be explained as well as the observed high velocities near the center of the galaxy should be reconsidered.

- 4.A similar phenomenon exists in the electrodynamics in the case of the Scharnhorst-Barton effect, where the value of 𝜖 decreases under the value of 1 in consequence of a reduction of the vacuum polarizations. See G. Barton and K. Scharnhorst: J. Phys. A 26: 2037 (1993)Google Scholar
