RELATIVISTIC GENERALIZATION OF THE INERTIAL AND GRAVITATIONAL MASSES EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE

NIKOLAI V. MITSKIEVICH
2008 The Eleventh Marcel Grossmann Meeting  
The Newtonian approximation for the gravitational field equation should not necessarily involve admission of non-relativistic properties of the source terms in Einstein's equations: it is sufficient to merely consider the weak-field condition for gravitational field. When a source has electromagnetic nature, one simply cannot ignore its intrinsically relativistic properties, since there cannot be invented any non-relativistic approximation which would describe electromagnetic stress-energy

But the test particle on which gravitational field is acting, should be treated as non-relativistic (this premise is required for introduction of the Newtonian potential Φ N from the geodesic equation).
