Abstract : The author has investigated a number of problems on the interface between gravitation and quantum theory. These include: (1) study of restrictions on coupling of matter sources to gravitation, alternatives to Einstein theory and experimental constraints on the theory; (2) stability of solutions of Einstein equations near vacuum, and in closed spaces; and, (3) the finite range problem in gravitation and the discontinuities between finite and infinite range predictions.
