Energy in Reboucas-Tiomno-Korotkii-Obukhov and Godel-type space-times in Bergmann-Thomson's formulations

We calculate the total energy (the matter plus fields) of the universe considering Bergmann-Thomson's energy-momentum formulation in both Einstein's theory of general relativity and tele-parallel gravity on two different space-times; namely Reboucas-Tiomno-Korotkii-Obukhov and the Godel-type metrics. We also compute some kinematical quantities for these space-times and find that these space-times have shear-free expansion and non-vanishing four-acceleration and vorticity. Different approximations of the Bergmann-Thomson energy-momentum formulation in these different gravitation theories give the same energy density and agree with each other. The results advocate the importance of energy-momentum definitions.


Energy and momentum associated with Kasner-type universes
Salti, M (2005-01-01)
This study is purposed to elaborate the problem of energy and momentum distribution of the viscous Kasner-type universe in general theory of relativity. In this connection, we use the energy-momentum definitions of Einstein, Papapetrou and Landau-Lifshitz and obtained that the energy-momentum distributions (due to matter plus field) of the closed universe which is based on the viscous Kasner-type metric are vanishing everywhere. These results are exactly the same as those obtained by Salti et al. and agree ...
Energy associated with the Gibbons-Maeda dilaton spacetime
Aydogdu, Oktay; Salti, Mustafa; Korunur, Murat; Acikgoz, Irfan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-12-01)
In order to obtain energy and momentum (due to matter and fields including gravitation) distributions of the Gibbons-Maeda dilaton spacetime, we use the Moller energy-momentum prescription both in Einstein"s theory of general relativity and teleparallel gravity. We find the same energy distribution for a given metric in both of these different gravitation theories. Under two limits, we also calculate energy associated with two other models such as the Garfinkle-Horowitz-Strominger dilaton spacetime and the ...
Gravitational Waves and 2.5 PN Gravitational Wave Memory
Uçanok, Onur; Tekin, Bayram; Department of Physics (2020-9)
Since the discovery of general relativity, the Einstein field equations have explainedmany phenomenon (e.g. precession of orbits) and predicted others (e.g. gravitational lensing, gravitational time dilation and black holes). Among its many predictions,the wave-like nature of the linearized theory has garnered a lot of attention due to the possiblity of gravitational wave propagation; their effects, their observability andthe complicated nature of gravitational radiation. Many scientists (that can be foun...
Energy in generic higher curvature gravity theories
Deser, S; Tekin, Bayram (2003-04-15)
We define and compute the energy of higher curvature gravity theories in arbitrary dimensions. Generically, these theories admit constant curvature vacua (even in the absence of an explicit cosmological constant), and asymptotically constant curvature solutions with nontrivial energy properties. For concreteness, we study quadratic curvature models in detail. Among them, the one whose action is the square of the traceless Ricci tensor always has zero energy, unlike conformal (Weyl) gravity. We also study th...
Spectra, vacua, and the unitarity of Lovelock gravity in D-dimensional AdS spacetimes
Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Gullu, Ibrahim; Tekin, Bayram (2012-08-24)
We explicitly confirm the expectation that generic Lovelock gravity in D dimensions has a unitary massless spin-2 excitation around any one of its constant curvature vacua just like the cosmological Einstein gravity. The propagator of the theory reduces to that of Einstein's gravity, but scattering amplitudes must be computed with an effective Newton's constant which we provide. Tree-level unitarity imposes a single constraint on the parameters of the theory yielding a wide range of unitary region. As an ex...
