Note 409(4): Description of Binary Pulsar Precession as a Thomas Precession

Agreed, the numerical calculations in UFT375 were very accurate and the same numbers should be used. In this note the rigorously correct reduced mass was used throughout as in Marion and Thornton chapter seven, so the accurate Binet equation is Eq. (10). Denoting m1 = m, m2 = M, Eq. (10) uses m squared M squared / (m + M). In the binary pulsar m is about the same as M. In the solar system M >> m, so the Binet equation reduces to that used by Marion and Thornton, Eq. (17). They replace this by Eq. (20) and calculate the Einstein precession, albeit in a very dubious way as we have shown. As shown in Eq. (18), m squared M must be replaced by m squared M squared / (m + M) in the accurate calculation. This is equivalent to replacing M by M squared / (m + M) as in Eq. (19). In the solar system this is a small correction, but in the binary pulsar it is a large correction. Finally M in Eq. (20) is replaced by M squared / (m + M), leading to the albeit dubious Einstein precession (22). Agreed that the Thomas velocity for the binary pulsar is larger that the observed velocities at periastron and apastron. However, the Thomas velocity needed to give the precisely observed binary pulsar precession is by a new hypothesis the result of an underlying spacetime torsion that results in frame rotation. This is a new idea, the spacetime torsion is related to the angular velocity of the rotating frame and therefore to the Thomas velocity due to spacetime torsion. In further work I intend to show precisely how the two concepts are related. So all precessions in the universe are due, by this new hypothesis, to spacetime torsion, which expresses itself as a Thomas velocity. This is the only correct theory of precession, because it does not use the Einstein equation and its metrics. When the Thomas velocity (or ECE2 velocity) is the Newtonian velocity, the particular result is obtained that the Lorentz boost and the ECE2 rotation give the same Lorentz factor. So a Thomas (or more accurately an ECE2) velocity of 1.366 ten power six meters per second gives the observed binary pulsar precession claimed to be 4.226 plus or minus 0.002 degrees per Earth year. The usual Einstein field equation gives 2.368 degrees per earth year and is totally wrong. This becomes very clear in the binary pulsar, and there are signs of the Einstein equation going wrong also in the solar system (UFT406). I have no idea how the EGR physicists claim precise agreement. My guess is that they play around with the Einstein metrics in an essentially empirical way and call this "a non linear correction". This correction also omits torsion and is also totally wrong (UFT301). Finally the inward spiralling of the pulsar is described by a decreasing ECE2 velocity and slowly decreasing spacetime torsion. This will be the subject of future work.

According to UFT 375, the masses of the double star system are not exactly equal, they differ by about 5%. Therefore it could be better to use the exact values in the reduced mass mu but hte result will nearly be the same.

I do not understand the transition in eq.(18/19) from M to m2.

The numerical calculations are correct. In comparison, the Newtonian velocity of the pulsar (eq.12) is

v_N = 6.570*10^5 m/s

while the experimentally found velocity, probably at apastron, is 4.50*10^5 m/s. This is only a half of the Thomas velocity.

Note 409(4): Description of Binary Pulsar Precession as a Thomas Precession

This note defines the classical theory of the binary pulsar, then shows that the Einstein theory produces a precession of 2.368 degrees per earth year. The experimentally observed precession is 4.226 plus or minus 0.002 degrees per earth year. So the Einstein theory is completely wrong as usual. It is shown that a well defined Thomas velocity produces the experimental result exactly, using a rotating ECE spacetime indicative of the presence of spacetime torsion. The ECE2 field equations of gravitation and electromagnetism are based on torsion and curvature. So all precessions in the universe are Thomas precessions (more accurately they should be called ECE2 precessions) due to the existence of torsion. The latter is neglected completely in the standard theory of the Hulse Taylor binary pulsar. This i sthe showcase of EGR, a showcase which is unfortunately full of howlers. The old and creaking ideas of EGR are wolves kept in captivity. They are all howlers, the theory is full of howlers. It is also shown that the standard model produces a completely incorrect total precession of 15.046 degrees per earth year when standard de Sitter precession is added to the Einstein precession. The two precessions always coexist. The shrinking of the orbit of the binary pulsar is described in ECE2 by a decrease in the Thomas velocity, meaning that the torsion slowly decreases. The EGR theory produces a wholly mysterious precise agreement using a method which is as clear as mud. This is claimed to be based on a non linear Einstein theory and gravitational radiation. ECE2 does not produce gravitational radiation from a binary pulsar. In ECE2, gravitational radiation is produced in exactly the same was as radiation theory in electromagnetism, but is twenty three orders of magnitude weaker. Stephen Crothers has heavily criticised the standard theory of gravitational radiation. The mythical methods of non linearity of the Einstein field equation consist of playing around with metrics which are however wildly erroneous due to the neglect of torsion (UFT301 (CEFE)). They neglect the very thing that produces all observable precessions – torsion.
