Gravitational induction is a property of gravitational field to drive matter as a result of changing of torsion field flux.

Theory of phenomenon[edit]

One of the four equations of Lorentz-invariant theory of gravitation (see also Gravitoelectromagnetism and Maxwell-like gravitational equations) has the following form: [1]


According to , after a change in time of there appear circular field (rotor) of , having the opportunity to lead matter in rotation.

If the vector of torsion crosses a certain surface , then we can calculate the flux of this field through this surface:

where – the vector normal to the element of surface .

Let’s take the partial derivative in equation with respect to time with the minus sign and integrate over the surface, taking into account the equation :

In the integration was used Stokes' theorem, replacing the integration over a surface of the curl of vector on the integration of this vector over the boundary of the surface. In the right side of is a term, equal to the work on transfer of a unit mass of matter on closed path , bounding the surface . By analogy with electromagnetism, this work could be called gravitomotive force. In the middle of is time derivative of the flux . According to , gravitational induction occurs when the flux of field through a certain surface changes and is expressed in occurrence of rotational forces acting on particles of matter.

Gravitational induction can be regarded as gravitational analogue of the law of electromagnetic induction. [2] [3] [4]

Typical cases[edit]

Just as in electromagnetism, there are two different cases of gravitational induction. In the first case the flux is changed due to variable with a constant flow surface, bounded by a loop.

In the second case, the torsion remains constant, but the flux changes due to changes in the area occupied by the matter of the loop. For example, consider rubber hose filled with liquid and arranged in a closed rectangular loop in the torsion field . Let the three sides of the loop are fixed, while the fourth side extends with speed , increasing the area of the loop. Since the flux through the loop changes, the liquid in the hose begins to circulate. The direction of motion of the fluid will be such that torsion field of the fluid will be sent in the same direction as initial torsion field created the circulation of fluid (this is contrary to the Lenz's_law in electromagnetism).

The second case, with expanding of the loop, can also be considered using the expression for full gravitational force:


  • – the mass of the fluid particles on which the force is acting,
  • – the particle velocity as the velocity of stretching of the loop.

From for the unit mass, located only in torsion field , should:

The integral of field strength around the contour of the loop gives gravitomotive force, as the work of gravitational force on the displacement of unit mass. This integral will be:

where is the vector describing change in the area of the loop during time , arises due to the movement of one side of the loop in the direction of velocity .

Expression (6) is the rate of change of the flux of torsion field when the contour of the area changes. Comparing , and we find for the induced field strength: . Thus, during of changing the flux liquid inside the hose comes in motion and begins to circulate in the direction specified by the vector of induced field strength . Gravitational induction regards to the matter of the hose too, so that if the hose is not attached, it will rotate synchronously together with its contents.

The differential approach[edit]

The theory of phenomena of gravitational induction can be explained also by means of differential quantities. [5] If we assume that the flux of torsion field instead of (2) is determined by the expression , where is the vector of a certain small area, and torsion is homogeneous in this area, then the rate of change of the flux of torsion field can be written:

Substituting (1) and (6):

From this, taking into account (3) in the general case follows:

so in the case of changing of field torsion , or in the case of changing of vector of area when contour is intersecting the torsion field, the flux of torsion field is changing and gravitomotive force is creating. When the vector of area is changing gravitomotive force arises in the sides of the loop, which move at the speed crossing lines of torsion field. The direction of the force acting on matter of the loop is determined by vector product .

Application in physics[edit]

In covariant theory of gravitation (CTG) gravitational stress-energy tensor has the form: [5]


where speed of gravity, gravitational constant, metric tensor, and gravitational tensor is calculated through gravitational four-potential as follows:


In weak field approximation, when the curvature of spacetime can be set almost equal to zero, the equations of CTG become close to equations of Lorentz-invariant theory of gravitation. This causes the wave equations [6] for potentials of gravitational field ( – scalar potential, – vector potential), and for field strength and torsion (gravitomagnetic) field . In stationary case, the wave equations of gravitational field become Poisson's equations of classical physics. In this approximation components of gravitational stress-energy tensor can be written explicitly:

– energy density of gravitational field,
, where index and is the vector of energy flux density of gravitational field or Heaviside vector.

Negative energy density and energy flux lead to unique property inherent to gravitational field. This property lies in the fact that the gravitational effect of induction between two masses under certain conditions is not damped, and may increase in amplitude, as in systems with positive feedback. For example, if two bodies are attracted by gravitation and rotate in the same direction, then the change of potential energy of gravitational field will transform into rotational energy of the bodies through gravitational induction. Thus, the bodies will rotate each other, increasing torsion field around them.

Described mechanism is proposed to explain the nuclear forces between nucleons in atomic nuclei. [5] With proper arrangement of nucleons in nucleus due to the gravitational induction nucleons spin up to a maximum angular velocity. The result is a repulsive force of nucleons spins (in gravitoelectromagnetism these forces are called gravitomagnetic forces) of such magnitude that are enough to compensate the force of attraction of the nucleons from the field of strong gravitation. In such evaluating of the forces acting in atomic nuclei, is used strong gravitational constant.[7]
