Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We proved in a previous paper that a generalized circulation theorem characterizes Einstein's theory of gravitation as a special case of a more general theory of gravitation, which is also based on the principle of equivalence. Here we pose the question of whether it is possible to weaken this circulation theorem in such ways that it would imply more general theories than Einstein's. This problem is solved. Principally, there are two possibilities. One of them is essentially Weyl's theory.
