Abstract

By weakening the equivalence principle to “a gravitational field and a corresponding acceleration of the reference system are indistinguishable, at least at the scale of measurements usually used for gravitation”, the Einstein–Hilbert action and Einstein’s field equations can without change be interpreted consistently with the standard model.

Keywords: Equivalence Principle, General Relativity, Standard Model
