  • TITLE: On the Curvature of Rotating Objects

    AUTHORS: Martin Tamm

    KEYWORDS: Curvature, Rotation, General Relativity

    JOURNAL NAME: Journal of Modern Physics, Vol.6 No.6, May 26, 2015

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we investigate a certain property of curvature which differs in a remarkable way between Lorentz geometry and Euclidean geometry. In a certain sense, it turns out that rotating topological objects may have less curvature (as measured by integrating the square of the scalar curvature) than non-rotating ones. This is a consequence of the indefinite metric used in relativity theory. The results in this paper are mainly based of computer computations, and so far there is no satisfactory underlying mathematical theory. Some open problems are presented.
