|In the framework of the special theory of relativity, the relativistic theory of gravitation (RTG) is constructed. The energy-momentum tensor density of all the matter fields (including gravitational one) is treated as a source of the gravitational field. The energy-momentum and the angular momentum conservation laws are fulfilled in this theory. Such an approach permits us to unambiguously construct the gravitional field theory as a gauge theory. According to the RTG, the homogeneous and isotropic Universe is to be ``flat''. It evolves cyclewise from some maximal density to the minimal one, etc.
The book is designed for scientific workers, post-graduates and upper-year students majoring in theoretical physics.|
