Distance functions for Coriolis interaction in Friedmann universes
Abstract
Coriolis effects induced by rotating shells in various Friedmann universes are studied using a firstorder perturbation of the field equations. The dragging effect on the local inertial frame is calculated by means of a distance function which is specific of each model; it is shown that a convergent 'sum for inertia' may be written down even for spatially open universes. Two complementary descriptions are given, one in terms of a quasiinstantaneous propagation, and the other including retardation effects.
