Newton had suggested that, on the basis of his gravitational theory, the Earth ought to be an oblate spheroid and have an equatorial bulge, because it was rotating (see 1687, Universal Gravitation).
16) Therefore, the theoretical framework is no longer a proposition belonging to the deductive structure of Newtonian gravitation, but is one of the principles of the new Einsteinian gravitational theory.
Numerous applications, including the gravitational theory developed by both the Berwald-Mor metric and the Chernov metric, are also presented.
astronomer Vera Rubin and her colleagues found that stars far from the center of galaxies were moving as fast as those near the center - a phenomenon that violated Newtonian gravitational theory.
