Abstract

Considerable efforts have been made and are still being made to verify the validity of the principle of the equivalence of gravitational and inertial mass, one of the cornerstones of the classical theory of general relativity. Specific attempts at quantummechanical formulations of gravity allow for non-Newtonian contributions, which might lead to a difference in the gravitational force on matter and antimatter.
