An Eccentric Derivation of the Gravitational-Lens Effect


The gravitational-lens effect is interpreted in the framework of the Newtonian mechanics. Regarding the photon of energy hv as a corpuscle with a tiny mass of mγ=hv/c2. We calculate it's path bended by the gravitational force near the surface of the sun. Effects of dark matter have also been evaluated.
