- A bit of an odd question but, I thought it worth asking.
Is it possible to reduce and/or modify the EFE so that they make the exact same prediction as Newton's law of gravity? I am wondering if the slight differences in prediction from these two mathematical approaches can be identified at a particular place in the EFE or if it's the geometrical nature of GR that is expressing itself. Can some of the variables simply be omitted, or set to zero, or something like that, that would then allow the equations to exactly mirror Newton, while retaining the Geometrical warping of spacetime? Obviously these equations would be incorrect, but the point I am curious about is the mechanics of how the predictions diverge from one another. Ty.
