A Relativistic Model of Fluids Motion

  •  Jaak Heinloo    


The paper suggests a relativistic model of fluids motion combining the conventional formulation of the
relativistic fluid mechanics with the “Maxwell’s formulation” of equations of the relativistic flow field,
following from application of the 4D formalism in deducing Maxwell’s equations with the 4-potential replaced
by the 4-momentum flux. The model is formulated to demonstrate a possibility of an alternative interpretation of
viscosity effects in non-relativistic and relativistic situations. The model complements also the similarities in
mathematical formulation of fluid mechanics and electrodynamics addressed in different contexts.
