377(2): ECE2 Orbital Theory in Terms of the Spin Connection

This is given by solving Eqs. (1) and (2) as shown. The resulting set of equations in Cartesian coordinates in a plane is Eq. (17) to (20). The X and Y components of the kappa vector are used as input parameters, and this might produce positive and negative precessions. The experimental precession is found by adjusting kappa sub X and kappa sub Y. The relativistic Newtonian force equation has been used in Eq. (1). The solution can be repeated with the Minkowski force equation in order to graph the effects of using the Minkowski force instead of the relativistic Newtonian force. The latter is the rigorously self consistent force equation in the frame of the field equations, because it gives the Einstein energy equation and relativistic hamiltonian (Marion and Thornton, third edition, chapter 14). Only one out of the four ECE2 gravitational field equations has been used, the gravitational Coulomb law (2). There are three more field equations of ECE2 gravitation in general, so all kinds of precessions in a plane can be computed.
