### THE THEORY OF THE GRAVITATION CONSTANT

**Abstract**: This summary account of the author's theory of gravitation enables the reader to calculate G in terms of the electron charge-mass ratio. A classical approach to electrodynamics adapted to relate to lepton interactions yields the unifying link with the gravitational interaction. The tau-lepton is found to be a primary 'graviton' mediator. The theory has a common foundation with methods of deriving the fine structure constant and the
proton-electron mass ratio already published in summary form.
