The Characterization of Gravitational Collapse as a Mass-Energy Phase Change

Robert J. Heaston
Year: 2004
Keywords: gravity, mass-energy
The assumption is made that the transition of mass into energy, and vice versa, is a form of phase change.  Several concurrent characteristics and properties accompany this phase change.  Some of these characteristics are a theoretical basis for a strong-force law, an explanation for dark energy, and a specific reference frame that Einstein used.  The special theory and the general theory converge at the phase change.  The most surprising result of the phase-change model is that energy/light possesses a constant gravitational potential.  The derivations of these characteristics are all related mathematically in a common path sequence.
