Discussion of Note 376(5)

The relation of the lagrangian to the Minkowski force equation is given in Eqs. (1) to (4) of Note 376(4). As you know, the Minkowski force equation was first used in papers like UFT228 ff., but it was not shown in those papers that the Minkowski force equation gives a precessing orbit. This is a very important result. Notes for UFT376 build on it in various ways. The relation to fluid gravitation is given in Eq. (8) of Note 376(4).

Subj: Re: Note 376(5): Solving the Minkowski Type Orbital Equation

Eqs. (5,6) are different from those we obtained from relativistic Lagrange theory. How are both related?

A precessing elliptical planar or non planar orbit can be obtained from the Minkowski type force equation (3) of ECE2 relativity by solving Eqs. (5) and (6) simultaneously with computer algebra. This note shows that the field equations of ECE2 gravitostatics produce an expression for the mass density of the source (Eq. (18)), in which X and Y are found from Eqs. (5) and (6). Eq. (18) also gives kappa dot g in terms of X and Y, so knowing g, kappa can be worked out. The quantity kappa is related to the spin connection vector of ECE2 relativity. This spin connection vector does not exist in special relativity, showing that this theory is general relativity. In special relativity, there is no spin connection in its flat Minkowski spacetime.
