On the origin of the deflection of light
MetadataShow full item record
Action at distance in Newtonian physics is replaced by finite propagation speeds in classical post–Newtonian physics. As a result, the differential equations of motion in Newtonian physics are replaced by functional differential equations, where the delay associated with the finite propagation speed is taken into account. Newtonian equations of motion, with post–Newtonian corrections, are often used to approximate the functional differential equations. In  a simple atomic model based on a functional differential equation which reproduces the quantized Bohr atomic model was presented. The unique assumption was that the electrodynamic interaction has a finite propagation speed. In  a simple gravitational model based on a functional differential equation which gives a gravitational quantification and an explanation of the modified Titius–Bode law is described. In  an explanation of the anomalous precession of Mercury’s perihelion is given in terms of a simple retarded potential, which, at first order, coincides with Gerber’s potential of 1898, and which agrees with the author’s previous works [16, 17]. In this paper, it is shown how the simple retarded potential presented in  also gives the correct value of the gravitational deflection of fast particles of General Relativity.
