Discussion of Spin Connections for Forward Precession

Many thanks! This is one method, which shows that the orbit defines the spin connections, there must be a particular relation between the spin connection components for a given orbit. In other words the ratio of spin connection components is given by the orbit, so the ratio of spin connection components is given by a particular value of the forward precession. Therefore the experimentally observed forward precession for a planet such as Mercury will correspond to a given ratio of spin connections. So this ratio should be used as an input parameter in order to give the observed precession. The Newtonian orbit, in which there is no precession, also corresponds to a given ratio of spin connection components.

Subj: Re: Spin Connections for Forward Precession

I am not sure how I could proceed with the spin connections. We have the equation


where g_x = x dotdot and g_y = y dotdot. Furthermore we have

div g = 4 pi G rho_m

where r is sqrt(x^2+y^2). From the orbit calculations, x, y, x_dotdot, y_dotdot are known. We can these solutions insert into (*) . Then we have a relation between kappa_x and kappa_y . We can freely choose one of it and compute the other one as a function of t. We can do this with both solutions for forward and retrograde precession. Is this what you had in mind?

This is full of interest, major progress is being made in the study of precession. It would be most interesting to compare these spin connections with those for retrograde precession, which cannot be accounted for in Einsteinian general relativity (EGR). Finally, it would be of great interest to use the spin conenction components as input parameters (e.g. kappa sub X = 1, kappa sub Y = 1; and kappa sub X = 1, kappa sub Y = 100 in units of inverse metres). The idea is to try to match the experimental and theoretical precession as precisely as possible. The simultaneous equations available for forward precession are Eqs. (11), (25) and (26) for forward precession, and Eqs. (11), (20) and (21) for retrograde precession. They are equation sets in X, Y, X dot and Y dot for input parameters kappa sub X and kappa sub Y. For retrograde precession Eq. (12) reduces to Eq. (13). For forward precession there will be an equivalent of Eq. (13). The amazing thing is that the well known lagrangian of special relativity produces forward and retrograde precession. The task now is to match the theory to experiment.

Subj: Plot of spin connections

The spin connections have been plotted from the Lagrange solution for t, according to

as derived from eqs.(12,14) of note 377(5). The correspondence to X dot and Y dot can clearly be seen, see both figures.
