Paper 148: The Principle of Orbits

April 29, 2010

This paper gives a simple method for describing all known orbits without the use of dark matter, Einstein or Newton.


Expressions for the ECE Gravitational Metric in Minkowski Spacetime

April 28, 2010

It is shown that the ECE metric and the conventional gravitational metric are equivalent provided that eqns. (40) of this note apply. So gravitation can be described in Minkowski spacetime, an important insight.


New Principle of Orbits

April 26, 2010

This note introduces a new principle of orbits: all orbits are described by a Minkowski metric with a given dependence of r on phi. This principle applies to all known orbits without use of dark matter.


Biography by Kerry Pendergast

This will be published in softback shortly by Abramis / Arima at about twelve pounds stirling (about $18). It is always very popular and in April 2010 is again the most read item on this site (

Precessing Elliptical Orbits from Gravitation and Sommerfeld H Atom

April 24, 2010

It is shown that both these cases give a precessing ellipse, and an equivalent metrical treatment can be developed from the ellipse straightforwardly.


Increasing Interest in ECE Theory

April 24, 2010

There is steadily increasing interest in ECE theory, across the board, in all 147 source papers to date. This means that the standard model of physics is thoroughly obsolete and that the colleagues worldwide have checked thoroughly that ECE is mathematically correct in all respects.

Metric for Precessing Ellipse and Free Fall Limit

April 22, 2010

This is the metrical method for the precessing ellipse, the problem is again purely kinetic and the metric is another solution of the orbital theorem of UFT 111. A metric is suggested for the Coulomb law and for the relativistic motion of one electric charge in orbit around another.


On the Absence of Potential Energy in orbits

April 22, 2010

This note shows that all the information about orbits is contained in the metric, which is derived from the direct observation of orbits. The metric gives kinetic energy and angular velocity, no potential energy or force being necessary. All that is ever observed is the metric. From an equation such as (50) or (49) it becomes clear that the elliptical orbit of Kepler does not in fact prove the inverse square law of Newton.


Metric Based Explanation of all Orbits

April 21, 2010

This is a simple metric based explanation of all known orbits without use of the potential energy term or gravitational attraction.
