# The truth about the energy-momentum tensor and pseudotensor

@article{Khrapko2014TheTA, title={The truth about the energy-momentum tensor and pseudotensor}, author={Radi I. Khrapko}, journal={Gravitation and Cosmology}, year={2014}, volume={20}, pages={264-273} }

The operational and canonical definitions of an energy-momentum tensor (EMT) are considered as well as the tensor and nontensor conservation laws. It is shown that the canonical EMT contradicts the experiments and the operational definition, the Belinfante-Rosenfeld procedure worsens the situation, and the nontensor “conservation laws” are meaningless. A definition of the 4-momentum of a system demands a translator since integration of vectors is meaningless. The mass of a fluid sphere is… Expand
