Volume 3 PROGRESS IN PHYSICS The Gravitational Field: A New Approach

In this paper, we consider the Einstein field equations with the cosmological term. If we assume that this term is slightly varying, it induces a vacuum background field filling the space. In this case, inspection shows that the gravitational field is no longer represented by a pseudo-tensor, but appears on the right hand side of the field equations as a true tensor together with the bare mass tensor thus restoring the same conservation condition as obeyed by the Einstein tensor.
