Relativity, Gravitation, Relativistic Rotation: Clarifying Some Paradoxes at
the Extreme**, by **Netsivi Ben-Amots (2017)**. Book
published by Technology Dynamics Inc., NJ,

According to Einstein's Special Relativity
theory *E*=*mc*², meaning that *m*=*E*/*c*². Before deriving General Relativity theory, Einstein (1912)
considered the rest mass to be constant, i.e. not dependent on the distance to
another mass. Einstein's limitation means that the rest mass includes many
types of energy, but does not include gravitational energy. However when this
constraint is removed, the rest mass will also include the gravitational
energy, and is dependent on the distance to another mass.

The second famous equation of Special
Relativity is the relativistic addition of velocities

* v*_{1}+*v*_{2}

v = -----------

1+*v*_{1}*v*_{2}/*c*^{2}

When applying this formula to rotation, the
obtained formula is not the classical one *v*=ω*r*. P. Franklin
(1922) derived a more precise approximate relativistic formula. When applying

Independently, when applying

*v*_{1}+*v*_{2}

v = -----------

1+*v*_{1}*v*_{2}/*c*^{2}

on Hubble's Law of the expansion of the
universe other new implications
arise.

In this book the author, Dr. Netsivi Ben-Amots
deals with these questions and others by use of clear and simple mathematical
terms. The author leads the reader through his step by step derivations, with
applications mainly in astrophysics.

From Dr. Ben-Amots’s theories a new and surprising
body of knowledge emerges, one that fits all the present observations and
measurements as well as most of the predictions of the theory of General
Relativity. Moreover, in extreme cases it presents new predictions, including
one surprising prediction of a new set of electron orbitals around a proton. This prediction needs verification by observation.

In these new and fresh formulations of Dr.
Ben-Amots, the known paradoxes of astrophysics such as black holes, big bang,
singularities, dark matter and dark energy do not exist because they are solved
without needing any exotic concepts.

In addition, Ben-Amots’s concepts and
mathematical formulations provide explanations to unsolved problems in physics.
These include but not limited to:

a) How imploding supernovae bounce back
outward to enormous explosions,

b) How thick accretion disks accelerate
relativistic jets,

c) The structure and stability of quasars
and active galactic nuclei and how they produce jets,

d) The sources of energy to these phenomena.

In a famous expression Einstein said that
nature did not think it was her business to make the discovery of her laws easy
for us.

The author further adds that nature neither
has any obligation to conform to existing paradigms. The new theories presented
by the author in this book replace a few paradigms. As such Dr.
Ben-Amots embarked on an ambitious endeavor.

It is expected that some of those holding
to the theories challenged by him will dismiss his works offhand, but doing so
will be dismissal of fundamental well accepted and proven components of
Einstein Special Relativity and Franklin’s relativistic rotation. Ben-Amots
modifies these concepts to derive new theories to explain phenomena of the
universe at extreme conditions. He does
this by using the same measurements prevailing in the field, but from them he
derives new conclusions which are simpler and devoid of interpretations which
are not necessary for science to be complete.
