Gravitational (dynamic) time dilation according to absolute spacetime theory
Abstract
Proceeding from our absolute spacetime conceptions, we obtain the formula for the gravitational frequency shift in an extremely simple way. Using our “burst” model for photons, we show that the different rates of clocks placed in spatial regions with different gravitational potentials appear as a direct result of the gravitational frequency shift and the axiomatic assumption that at any space point the time unit is to be defined by light clocks with equal “arms,” i.e., that at any space point the light velocity (in moving frames the “thereandback” velocity) has the same numerical value c. Considering the principle of equivalence, we come to the logical conclusion that the kinematic (EinsteinLorentz) time dilation is an absolute phenomenon.
