Vorstellung des Buches durch den Autor in einer E-Mail an Ekkehard Friebe vom 18.03.2014:

The book presents a comparison between newtonian mechanics, Eintein’s theories of relativity, and relational mechanics.

The book discusses the differences between relative and absolute motion, inertial frames of reference, the distinction between the kinematic and dynamic rotations of the Earth, the principle of equivalence, the proportionality between inertial and gravitational masses, etc.

Several crucial experiments are deeply discussed: Galileo’s free fall, simple pendulum, Newton’s bucket experiment, the flattening of the Earth at the poles, Foucault’s pendulum etc.

Relational mechanics is a quantitative implementation of the ideas of Leibniz, Berkeley and Mach. It utilizes Weber’s force law for gravitation and the principle of dynamic equilibrium.

According to relational mechanics the inertial forces are due to a gravitational interaction between the test body and the distant galaxies. The centrifugal force and the Coriolis’s force are deduced and interpreted as real forces of gravitational origin, being exerted by the galaxies on the test body, whenever there is a relative rotation between the body and the set of galaxies. Relational mechanics explains Newton’s bucket experiment with the curvature of the water being due to a gravitational interaction between the water and the set of distant galaxies, when there is a relative rotation between the water and the set of galaxies.

Weber’s electrodynamics and Ampère’s force between current elements are presented and compared with classical electromagnetism (Maxwell’s equations and Lorentz’s force law). It is discussed the origins
of the magnetic force and the different meanings of the velocity which appears in this law. The „field“ concept is deeply discussed.

Other topics presented in this work: the gravitational paradox, the universe with and without expansion, the finite and infinite universe, problems with the big bang theory, the history of the temperature of the cosmic microwave radiation, the cosmological points of view of Edwin Hubble, Schrödinger’s work on Mach’s principle, etc.

The book is intended for physicists, engineers, mathematicians, historians, philosophers of science and students.

Two chapters of this book present the reasons why I am totally against Einstein’s special and general theories of relativity.

Relational Mechanics is a new formulation of mechanics intended to replace not only Newton’s classical mechanics, but also Einstein’s special and general theories of relativity.
