Dynamics in Newtonian-Riemannian Space-Time (II)

  • Rong-ye Zhang


The relativity of motion and covariance of equation of motion in Newtonian-Riemannian space-time, some relationship between Newton's mechanics in N-R space-time and the general relativity, their difference and identity are discussed.
