I'm just in my beginning stages of learning the theory. I've derived just about everything, but i don't understand the stress tensor, or how to construct it. I would like to be able to solve problems, and this is one that came to mind.
How would one go about setting up the stress energy tensor for a particle, say an electron subjected to electric an electric field that makes the particle oscillate with frequency \omega?
Suppose two masses are connected via a really strong spring, where one of the masses undergo an acceleration towards a relativistic speed, by say a rocket that leaves the scene soon after. When in isolation, (the two masses), they exhibit a sinusoidal oscillation to and fro. What is the...
Let a mass oscillate with relativistic acceleration (sinusoidal) by means which are irrelevant. What does the gravitational field look like a distance R away?
Hi, I wish to not only learn, but prove every theory I come across. This requires a ton of math research, and at this point, I am about to begin quantum mechanics, and general relativity after I finish up my differential geometry book. My question, I suppose, is after I finish differential...
I know so little about the tiny world that provides us our laws. I am under the assumption that particles oscillate in general. I just want to know how. Not why. The why is easy.
How do protons oscillate? Do they move back and forth with a constant velocity, or sort of like a mass on a spring? If so, what is the frequency of oscillation? Thanks
Both the Newtonian theory on gravitation and the General theory of Relativity predict a change in the direction of a beam of light as it propagates past a large mass. Regardless of the precision of the Δ velocity component (the component that can represent the vertical shift towards a mass), If...
