Abstract: Ever since Oliver Heaviside’s suggestion of the possible existence of a set of equations, analogous to Maxwell’s
equations for the electromagnetic field, to describe the gravitational field, others have considered and built on the
original notion. However, if such equations do exist and really are analogous to Maxwell’s electromagnetic equations,
new problems could arise related to presently accepted notions concerning special relativity. This note, as well as
offering a translation of a highly relevant paper by Carstoiu, addresses these concerns in the same manner as similar
concerns regarding Maxwell’s equations were.
