We give a description of the effect of the gravitational field by using the geodesic equation of motion with respect to the first order Finslerian approximation of the Minkowski metric. This motivates linking the physical force of gravity to the non flat nature of space in the Finslerian setting and leads to an anisotropic version of the red shift formula.

Abstract

We give a description of the effect of the gravitational field by using the geodesic equation of motion with respect to the first order Finslerian approximation of the Minkowski metric. This motivates linking the physical force of gravity to the non flat nature of space in the Finslerian setting and leads to an anisotropic version of the red shift formula. We solve the linearized Finslerian field equations proposed by S. F. Rutz (Gen. Relativ. Gravit. 25(11):1139-1158, 1993).
