Abstract:

Research under the grant was in two basic areas. In the first, Gravitation, three of the principal topics were 1 Proof of positive-definiteness of energy and timelike character of the four-momentum for any gravitational system either with normal material sources or source-free. To this end, appropriate covariant methods for decomposing tensors were developed. 2 Unusual properties of solutions of coupled scalar-metric fields were found. 3 A consistent linear Lorentz invariant alternate to general relativity, with self coupling replaced by a non-local projection of the conserved part of the matter stress tensor testable experimental consequences so far as in Einstein theory.
