LenseThirring Type Gravitational Forces Between Disks and Cylinders
Abstract
BECAUSE of the widespread interest in measuring forces between spinning cylinders and disks^{1,2} and the speculative nature of the conclusions reached in previous discussions, we have made a quantitative calculation of the magnitude of the forces. As in earlier calculations^{3}, our approach is based on a weak field low velocity (EIH) approximation to general relativity. By methods familiar from potential theory in electrodynamics we first compute the first order corrections to a fiat space metric due to the presence of a spinning cylinder.
