I have taken up this problem together with Dr. J. Grommer, who has been loyally supporting me with all calculations in the area of general relativity in the last few years.[10] I thank him kindly on this occasion, as well as the International Education Board for making this long-term collaboration with Mr. Grommer possible. 18.
