Subject: 131(2): Summary Essay on ECE Electromagnetism
Date: Tue, 28 Apr 2009 04:04:15 EDT

This is a short four page essay that summarizes ECE electromagnetism, the key conceptual leap forward is that electromagnetism is recognized as being part of Cartan’s geometry within a fundamental hypothesis (1) to be evaluated with experimental data in Bacon’s philosophy of science. The essay points out that throughout the twentieth century the obsolete standard physics adhered to the nineteenth century view of electromagnetism. Towards the need of the twentieth century several groups began to work their way forward by using a gauge theory of electromagnetism: Barrett, Lehnert et al., Horwitz et al., Harmuth et al., and myself starting with the inference of B(3) at Cornell in 1992. All these theories are inter-related, and all produce B(3) in different notations and nomenclatures. I was the first to realize in late 1991 at Cornell Theory Center that the B(3) field is observable – in the inverse Faraday effect. Vigier immediately relaized teh importance of this to photon mass theory in 1993. In 2003 I realized that the electromagnetic potential density is a well defined Cartan tetrad, (see notes 131(1)) and this immediately leads to a unified field theory through Cartan’s geometry. The key leap forward of ECE theory is that electromagnetism is part of geometry. This resolves the fundamental incompatibility in the standard model betweeen photon mass theory and gauge theory. In this short essay, the Proca and Majorana equations of electromagnetism are derived from the ECE Lemma in the limit R goes to – the Compton wavenumber squared. Finally it is shown that the components of a plane wave are tetrad components. This was the start of ECE theory in 2003. These notes are leading towards a new fundamental symmetry law between components of the electromagnetic potential density based on the similarity of commutator theory in gravitation and electromagnetism. In ECE, densities are used, as in any theory of general relativity. The astounding success of ECE theory sprang from these years of careful work by several groups, in the teeth of ossified establishment dogma and the intellectual inertia of over a century.
