Gravitational synchrotron radiation in the metric of a new theory of gravitation.
Abstract
The wave equation for a scalar field is solved in the background metric of a proposed theory of gravity (Moffat, 1979) which is based on a nonRiemannian field structure with a nonsymmetric Hermitian metric. It is shown that gravitational synchrotron radiation (GSR) exists as a consequence of this theory of gravity, resulting from particles in stable orbits about a spherically symmetric object characterized by a deflectar parameter l which for the case of l is greater than 2M, conceals the Schwarzschild blackhole event horizon at a radius, r is equal to 2M. The GSR emitted is of greater intensity than that in general relativity, and actually increases to infinity as r approaches l. The actual power output of GSR for physically allowed stable orbits closest to r equaling l is estimated, demonstrating that a deflectar is a potentially strong source of gravitational radiation.
