THE EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE
"... The equivalence principle is an essential postulate of general relativity. It has been a subject of interest for 15 centuries, and investigated experimentally for at least four centuries. The universality of free fall (UFF) is an aspect of the equivalence principle. The UFF requires that a body mo ..."

Equivalence Principle
, 2008
"... According to this principle, the relativistic changes occurring to the bodies, after velocity changes, cannot be detected by observers moving with them because bodies and stationary radiations change in identical proportion after identical circumstances, i.e, because bodies and stationary radiations ..."

The Equivalence Principle and the bending of light
, 2002
"... The apparent discrepancy between the bending of light predicted by the equivalence principle and its corresponding value in general relativity is resolved by evaluating the deflection of light with respect to a direction that is parallel transported along the ray trajectory in 3space. In this way t ..."

EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE AND CLOCKS
, 1999
"... String theory suggests the existence of gravitationalstrength scalar fields (“dilaton ” and “moduli”) whose couplings to matter violate the equivalence principle. This provides a new motivation for highprecision clock experiments, as well as a generic theoretical framework for analyzing their sign ..."

Doing without the Equivalence Principle ∗
, 2004
"... In Einstein’s general relativity, geometry replaces the concept of force in the description of the gravitation interaction. Such an approach rests on the universality of freefall—the weak equivalence principle—and would break down without it. On the other hand, the teleparallel version of general r ..."

On the Equivalence Principle of Quantum Mechanics
, 2008
"... A recent concept in theoretical physics, motivated in string duality and M–theory, is the notion that not all quantum theories arise from quantising a classical system. Also, a given quantum model may possess more than just one classical limit. In view of these developments, we analyse some general ..."

properties that quantum mechanics must satisfy, if it is not to be formulated as a quantisation of a given classical mechanics. Instead, our approach to quantum mechanics is modelled on a statement that is close in spirit to the equivalence principle of general relativity, thus bearing a strong resemblance
Gravitation without the equivalence principle
, 2003
"... Abstract. In Einstein’s general relativistic description of gravitation, geometry replaces the concept of force. This is possible because of the universal character of free fall and would break down in its absence. On the other hand, the teleparallel version of general relativity is a gauge theory f ..."

Relying on this point it is shown that, in the absence of the weak equivalence principle, although the geometric description of general relativity
On Charge Conservation and The Equivalence Principle
, 704
"... We investigate one of the consequences of the twisted Poincaré symmetry. We derive the charge conservation law and show that the equivalence principle is satisfied in the canonical noncommutative spacetime. We applied the twisted Poincaré symmetry to the Weinberg’s analysis [11]. To this end, we gen ..."
