TITLE: Relativistic exponential gravitation and exponential potential of electric charge

AUTHOR: Ben-Amots, N.

ABSTRACT: We present theories of gravitation and electric potentials with exponential dependence on the reciprocal distance. In the context of this kind of electric potential we investigate the dynamics of a relativistic electron interacting with a proton.

SUMMARY: We investigated two new gravitation theories with variable rest
mass. We find that both give results very close to general relativity
for known weak gravitational fields but both suggested theories do not
exhibit "black holes." In order to verify which theory fits reality,
analysis of existing NEA/NEO observational data is suggested.

An exponential electric potential similar to the exponential gravitation
potential presently discussed is used for investigating the orbits of an
electron around a proton. A new set of hydrogen electron orbitals inner
to the Bohr orbitals and very close to the proton is found.

REVIEW: I have enjoyed reading the article in the Found. of Phys. It is a very
interesting, important and well written work with a lot of examples. I like this paper.
