Synchronization of thermal Clocks and entropic Corrections of Gravity

Andreas Schlatter There are so called MOND corrections to the general relativistic laws of gravity, able to explain phenomena like the rotation of large spiral galaxies or gravitational lensing by certain galaxy clusters. We show that these corrections can be derived in the framework of synchronizing thermal clocks. We develop a general formula, which reproduces the deep MOND correction at large scales and… Read more →

Duration and its relation to the structure of space-time II

Andreas Schlatter We assign to the radiation vacuum the role of a universal observer with a corresponding universal clock. By demanding that the thermal clock of a gravitationally accelerated observer in its local rest frame marches in step with the universal one, we derive relations between energy content and geometry of space-time.

Duration and its Relationship to the Structure of Space-Time

Andreas Schlatter The notion of duration is a fundamental feature of intuitive time. Under the assumption that the duration of a measurement is defined to produce a result with certainty, we define a universal observer who observes the position of a physical system. We investigate what conclusions for the structure of space-time the universal observer can draw. It turns out that the perspective… Read more →
