Charged Particle in the Extended Formulation of General Relativity
In the recently presented extended formulation of General Relativity (the EGR theory), a "persistent field" expressed by a gravity-like energy-momentum tensor has been suggested. Due to the non-Riemannian curvature manifested by the theory, this field tensor is a true entity unlike Einstein's pseudo-tensor. Here this tensor is considered in the case of a charged particle in a gravitational field. In the "gravitational radiation damping", the usual relativistic treatment leads to a mass renormalization process. In the framework of the presented theory, this renormalization is not longer required.
