Abstract

The article deals with the principle of gravity in atomic scale and treats the linearized gravitational perturbations as a massless, spin-two, gauge field coupled to itself and to matter, and argues that a consistent theory of this type, based on an action principle, is impossible unless the gravitational coupling is universal. The argument derives from a set of consistency conditions connecting successive orders of the perturbation expansion.
