Hi there, I'm a physics student who has recently finished a course on general relativity, and quite new here. I'm also Dutch, so excuse me if my English is messed up :) But I have a dillema, which keeps me out of my sleep.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The field-equations link space-time curvature to the energy-momentum tensor. What bothers me: an external observer measures the impuls of an moving object of course differently than the object itself does. The question is: Does this mean that curvature of space-time is frame dependant? I mean, several observers would measure different impulses, and this would curve the space-time differently, measured by each observer. I'm not sure if I interpret the energy-momentum tensor and curvature correctly, and my intuition says the curvature is not frame- dependant. My guess is that I'm overlooking something, but what?

Many thanks in forward :)
