This document discovers an important coincidence between a mathematical and a physical problem.

I remark the existence of circumstances which are compatible with coincidence between (i) the Bowen solutions for the York Lichnerowicz equations associated with the initial data problem in Einstein’s theory of gravitation and (ii) the decompositions proposed by the TEQ for deformed angular momentum. This discovery suggests that we are living at the surface of some Lambda surface and that this surface is surrounding a Bowen-York-Lichnerowicz like black hole (BYLBH), alias a void.


Einstein's master work [01-a; see a translation for example in 01-b] is published in 1916. In 1935, Einstein and Rosen propose in [02] a very original concept for the description of particles within a specific context which can be obtained in starting from the prescriptions exposed in [01]. The proposition was presumably supposed to allow a correct understanding of the atomic structures; at least the ones which was known at this time. In 1944, A. Lichnerowicz writes his famous equations [03-a]; see also [04-c; § 8.2.4, pp. 130-131]. They are then reworked by J. York. Approximately thirty years later, Bowen and all. proposes solutions for the York-Lichnerowicz initial data problem (see [04-c; chapter 8; § 8.2.6, pp. 136-139]).

The main results

The Bowen-York solutions for the initial data problem in general relativity have the generic formalism:

|BYX > ~ [P]. |p >


  1. p is the ADM three-dimensional classical kinetic momentum; 
  2. [P] is the main part of a non-trivial decomposition ([P], z) in M(3, R) x E(3, R) for some angular momentum which has been deformed by a specific family of matrices [A]:

|dx, x][A] > = [P].|x > + |z >

That family generates polynomial of degree at most two (the so-called “initial theorem”) of which the coefficients of degree one must be of the following type:

da(x) = -(G. m/r3). xa + ga(x), a = 1, 2, 3.

With different words : they are a modified expression of the Newtonian gravitational potential.


All this is explained in my document.

The document EAN-9782369231134, v2, 14 March 2020, written in the French language is going a little bit further. A precise formalism for the modification, g, is not really imposed by the TEQ. It may eventually be one of the post-Newtonian propositions. The unique constraint is a strange one concerning the spatial position:

x = rot g(x)
