Gravitation as an effect of nonlinear electrodynamics

Alexander A. Chernitskii1


We consider an approach to unification of the gravitational and electromagnetic interactions based on the existence of an effective Riemannian space in nonlinear electrodynamics. In the context of this approach, we discuss the possibility of screening the gravitational field
