For those who have access to the feedback sites this is very encouraging and it is perfectly satisfactory to any scholar to have such interest in his work. It shows all documents of significance being constantly studied worldwide. In Dec 07 there was considerable interest in paper 6 of the ECE series and in my first monograph, published by Wiley in 1982, “Molecular Dynamics and the Theory of Broad Band Spectroscopy” with Gareth Evans, Bill Coffey and Paolo Grigolini. This month the interest from China increased sharply and perhaps they are coming across this kind of work for the first time. The research work on the Omnia Opera continues to be assembled, and when finished it will be a unique and freely accessible collection of well over seven hundred papers and books which I have produced from 1973 to present. I am glad to see considerable interest also in the excellent educational and historical articles prepared by my friends and colleagues on ECE theory and the rest of my work. Lar Felker’s book: “The Evans Equations of Unified Field Theory”, recorded well over a million hits during its preprint lifetime on _www.aias.us_ ( and _www.atomicprecision.com_ ( . Kerry Pendergast’s book, “Crystal Spheres” is also very well studied, and is unique in that it records for the first time the work of the British Civil List Scientists, some of them being among the greatest of any era, for example Newton and Faraday. The _www.aias.us_ ( website is therefore a substantial library. I am also glad that the new _www.santilli-galilei.com_ ( website has attracted over 7,000 hits this month, and for a completely new website this is excellent – already much greater than the average physics department for example. So great thanks are due to the voluntary webteam that keeps our sites going from day to day. This takes considerable time and effort, and as we can see, is much appreciated worldwide.

Happy New Year to all,

Civil List Scientist,

Crystal Spheres

Subject: Fwd: Crystal Spheres
Date: Mon, 31 Dec 2007 03:38:51 EST

This is an excellent historical description as usual of some famous science and scientists by Kerry Pendergast. My predecessor Oliver Heaviside simplified the original equations of Maxwell into vector form adn I now adopt the philosophy of my predecessor Michael Faraday – that the potential or Faraday’s electrotonic state, is physically meaningful.

Dear Myron,

Please find below the Sun as a Crystal Sphere, page 54.

In 1869, Mendeleev gave a lecture to the Russian Chemical Society which showed how the periodic table of elements could be formulated by reference to valency and atomic weights (relative atomic mass). He showed that the list of the known elements in order of weight could be arranged in rows called periods and as each period became filled, heavier atoms could be added in new rows by matching repeating chemical patterns in heavier atoms to those already lay down. The vertical patterns (groups) produced in this table were governed by the valency of the atoms and could be used to predict the chemistry of one member of the group by knowing how other members of that group behaved.. Mendeleev table left gaps where matches could not yet be found, with the assumption that these gaps would be filled as new elements were discovered. Mendeleev gave the Faraday Lecture on ‘The Periodic Law of the Chemical Elements’ at the Royal Institution in 1889 to Fellows of the Chemical Society. In his Faraday address Mendeleev acknowledged the ground breaking work of Lavoisier and Dalton and recognized the importance of the use of the spectroscope to identify elements both on Earth and in the Sun and stars.

Mendeleev was an expert on spectroscopy and had written a book in 1861 on the subject, while researching into its use in Heidelberg. Contemporary researchers of Mendeleev at Heidelberg were Bunsen and Kirchhoff who were pioneering the technique of emission spectroscopy In chemical analysis, the flame test is used to show the presence of metallic elements by putting samples into a Bunsen burner flame to look for characteristic colours. A lilac flame indicates potassium, yellow flame sodium, and brick red flame lithium and so on. The spectroscope greatly extends this technique and was pioneered by Robert Wilhelm Bunsen (1811-1899) who received the Copley Medal in 1860 and Gustav Kirchhoff (1824-1877). Bunsen invented the Bunsen burner in 1865 by improving the design of a burner of Michael Faraday’s design. At Heidelberg, Bunsen and Kirchhoff discovered caesium in 1860 and rubidium in 1861through spectroscopic analysis, so completing the discovery of the metals of the first group of the periodic table. In 1861, while studying the chemical composition of the Sun through its spectrum they found cesium and rubidium to be present.

Kirchhoff formulated three laws of spectroscopy. His second law states that a hot gas produces light with spectral lines at discrete wavelengths which depend on the energy levels of the atoms in the gas. Study of these wavelengths and lines by other scientists would soon reveal how electrons are arranged in atoms. However, at this time electrons had not yet been discovered, but as might be expected Michael Faraday the world’s greatest experimenter had done the groundwork experiments which would facilitate their discovery.

In 1835 Faraday did some of the first experiments on plasmas, involving electrical discharges of gases at low pressure in evacuated glass tubes. These discharges can be seen in tubes containing noble gases such as neon, which are used in neon signs. The glow in cathode ray tubes was due to electrons colliding with gas atoms and emitting some of their energy as visible light or other forms of electromagnetic radiation. Faraday found the nature of the discharge in the evacuated cathode ray tubes depended on the pressure and discovered the Faraday dark space discharge near the cathode. At the end of the century further experiments with cathode ray tubes would lead in 1995 to the discovery of X-rays by Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen (1845-1923) in Germany. Röntgen was awarded the Copley Medal in 1896 and the first ever Nobel Prize for Physics in 1901.

In his later years Faraday believed that electricity, magnetism and light were all manifestations of the force of electromagnetism which was not believed by other leading scientists. However, James Clerk Maxwell believed in Faraday’s insights and eventually was able to prove the relationship mathematically. Maxwell frequently visited Faraday at the Royal Institution which gave Maxwell an overview of how Baconian science was most productive when theoretical work could be supported by experiments carried out in state of the art laboratories. This knowledge was put to fine use when Maxwell became the first Director of the new Cavendish Laboratory at Cambridge where he was able to work hard on the design of the laboratories, giving Cambridge the first purpose built physics laboratory in the world. Before Maxwell’s time physics in Cambridge and indeed throughout the world depended on students developing their ideas alone in their own college rooms, as Isaac Newton did, largely unsupervised and learning from their professors by helping out with experiments, much in the way as Michael Faraday had interacted with Davy. At this time science was often a hobby for the rich and as such the experimenter was often able to build his own laboratory for his experimentation. Thus the civil list scientist James Prescott Joule had a chemistry laboratory built for him by his father who had made his money brewing beer. Maxwell included lecture rooms in his plans so theoretical research and teaching could take place, with students undertaking applied projects in the cutting edge areas of physics.

Eventually Joseph John Thomson (1856-1940) took over as Director of the Cavendish Laboratory and his special area of interest was cathode ray tubes. Thomson was born in Manchester and studied at the University of Manchester before moving on to Cambridge. At the Cavendish Laboratory, Thomson designed a cathode ray vacuum tube which contained a fluorescent screen and which he used to show cathode rays could be deflected by magnetic fields or by electric charge and used the deflection to find the charge to mass ratio of the particles present. The charge to mass ratio was one thousand times greater than that of an atom, showing that the particles were very light and with a negative charge. Thomson had found out that electrons have a particle nature and for this great practical demonstration of the existence of the electron, Thomson was awarded the 1906 Nobel Prize for Physics.


Curvature and Torsion from Same Source

I have gotten involved with geometric algebra as a result of looking at a book at Borders thinking that it was connected with differential geometry. It really isn’t, but it’s interesting in its own right. See the website for the book at

I am currently trying to get Maxima to run on OpenBSD in 64-bit mode. I may have to switch operating systems to make that happen, as Maxima depends upon CLisp and CLisp is broken on 64-bit OpenBSD. I may switch to either FreeBSD or to some flavor of Linux to get CLisp and Maxima to run. Of course everything works in 32-bit mode, but I would hate to give up the extra cpu power I get in 64-bit mode.

Also, your latest notes on curvature, torsion, the Christoffel connection, and the Bianchi identity are quite interesting. I am still trying to figure out why curvature and torsion have to occur together instead of being mathematically independent. I am looking forward to getting the book with your latest papers in it since it is much easier for me to read hardcopy than computer screens. I need to get my printer working again.


To answer Dave’s question these originate simultaneously and ineluctably from the same operator, the commutator of covariant derivatives (“round trip” operator). This operator acts on the four vector and produces both the curvature and torsion tensors from the same operation. I have given full details of the proof in a recent paper, expanding as usual on Carroll’s incompletely given proof of his chapter three. In general therefore, if there is a curvature tensor there must be a torsion tensor, and vice versa. In index-less notation this is seen clearly from the Bianchi identity:

D ^ T := R ^ q

and I have proven in all detail that the Bianchi identity is a rigorously true identity which is essentially a re-expression of the commutator of covariant derivatives acting on the four vector. Without knowing anything else, the reader can see that T one one side is balanced by R on the other. One side is identically the same as the other, which is why the identity symbol := is used instead of the equality symbol =. In tensor notation one side is a cyclic sum of three curvature tensors, the other side is the same cyclic sum of definitions of the same curvature tensors. One can only arrive at this result from Cartan geometry by using the torsion tensor and tetrad postulate. I first gave this proof in paper 15, which Dave liked when he typeset it. Franklin then took over the typesetting.

The standard model arbitrarily sets T to zero by arbitrarily choosing the Christoffel symbol, which originates in the equation of metric compatibility together with the arbitrary assumption of symmetric metric (see Carroll chapter three for more details). This procedure gives the Ricci cyclic equation

R ^ q = 0

but recent ECE papers show that the procedure is fundamentally self-inconsistent, a Christoffel symbol gives non zero R sup kappa sub mu sup mu nu in general, but zero torsion.

So there is a chain of reasoning here which was unknown until paper 93, which used computer algebra. Steve Crothers has of course demolished the methods used ot solve EH, bu twe also know now that EH itself is essentially meaningless. I suggested a repair in paper 103.

Illustrating the Meaning of a Connection

Good point about the asymmetry! I will press ahead now with paper 100 and include this note in an appendix, then go on to paper 104.

This is a very useful note and should be read by all who ever wanted to know what a connection is! One can see from Eq. (17) that Gamma is not symmetric in the upper and first lower index. Furthermore it is not symmetric in the two lower indices. This can be seen by writing out Eq. 20 or 21 for values of nu=1 and 2. We have then

Gamma ^1_2_1 = sin (theta) Gamma ^1_1_2 = -sin (theta)
