The Exponential Metric (1/2)
This dynamic metric has exactly the same 10 Parameterized Post Newtonian
(PPN) values as the Schwarzschild solution in general relativity:
- Consistent with the weak equivalence principle
The Nordtvedt effect:
Consistent with the strong equivalence principle
Consistent with weak field tests, such as bending of light:
Gravity waves travel at the speed of light. Since the metric is fully conservative, there cannot be a dipole due to conservation of momentum, indicating the quadrapole is the lowest mode of emission.
