Abstract

Within the framework of the tetrad formulation of general relativity theory, we compute the total energy and momentum of four rotating frames using the gravitational energy-momentum 3-form. We show how the effect of inertia always makes the total energy divergent. We use a natural regularization method to obtain physical values for the total energy of the system and show how it works on a number of explicit examples. We also show by calculation that inertia has no effect on the momentum components. © 2011 Chinese Physical Society and IOP Publishing Ltd.
