Does general relativity explain gravitational effects? (English. Russian original) Zbl 0616.53053
Theor. Math. Phys. 69, 1179-1187 (1986); translation from Teor. Mat. Fiz. 69, No. 3, 328-340 (1986).
It is shown that the relativistic theory of gravitation (RTG) gives unambiguous predictions for gravitational effects. At the same time, it is established that the predictions of general relativity are ambiguous, an ambiguity appearing for some effects in the terms of first order in the gravitational constant G and for others in terms of second order. The absence in general relativity of conservation laws for energy, momentum, and angular momentum of matter and the gravitational field taken together, and also the inability of the theory to give definite predictions for gravitational phenomena necessitate the abandonment of general relativity as a physical theory.
