In the paper “On the Gravitation of Moving Bodies” (S.X.K. Howusu, Phys. Essays 4, 81 (1991)) we published a natural generalization of Newton's dynamical law of motion for particles of nonzero rest mass. Then we showed how this resolves the phenomenon of anomalous orbital precession in the solar system in as excellent a way as Einstein's geometrical theory of gravitation, called general relativity. In this paper we show how our new law may be written in a mathematically more compact, economical, and elegant form.
Keywords: inertial mass, passive mass, anomalous orbital precession, solenoidal, gravitational spectral shift formula, golden dynamical equation of motion
