Inverse Lorentz Function

  1. Jul 3, 2005 #1

    If space-time curvature is represented by the Lorentz Function, then the Inverse Lorentz Function represents the space-time curvature inversion?

    Based upon such a system, all inversion origins repel each other?

    Is the Inverse Lorentz Function representative of GR anti-gravitation?

    Inverse Lorentz Function:
    [tex]\gamma^{-1}(v) = c \sqrt{1 - \frac{1}{v^2}} \; \; \; v \neq 0[/tex]

    Inverse Lorentz Function Limit:
    [tex]\lim_{v \rightarrow \infty} \gamma^{-1}(v) = \lim_{v \rightarrow \infty} c \sqrt{1 - \frac{1}{v^2}} \; \; \; v \neq 0[/tex]

    Based upon the Orion1 equations, what is the Domain and Range of the Inverse Lorentz Function?

    Based upon the Orion1 equations, what is the Limit of the Inverse Lorentz Function?

    Spacetime curvature is not represented by
    [tex]\gamma \equiv \frac{1}{\sqrt{1 - \frac{v^2}{c^2}}}[/tex]

    Lorentz had already died when the idea of space-time curvature was formulated by A.Einstein.
