Abstract
In recent years there has been a dramatic progress in the understanding of the non-perturbative structure of various physical theories.
In particular string theory has been vastly developed during these years, where a lot of duality conjectures between the different string theories have arisen.
The introductory text of this thesis is an attempt to describe this development in short and to make a brief overview of the subject.
Special focus is put on solitonic solutions in various field theories, which is the corner stone for these duality conjectures.
The introduction of supersymmetry is also essential for the understanding of duality by its natural way of handling BPS-states through the algebra.
In string theory, which is not only a supersymmetric theory but also includes gravity, these studies are put together through the discovery of various p-brane solutions to the background field equations.
The geometrical structure of these solutions is studied in some of the papers in this thesis.
In a generalization to the treatment of p-branes as solutions which break the local vacuum symmetry, the theory of almost product structures (APS-theory) has arisen as the natural candidate to the study of the intricate geometry of these solutions.
The last two papers deal with this ansatz where it is also seen that APS-theory is the most natural way of treating all kinds of splitting of manifolds including fibrations, Yang-Mills theoryand Kaluza-Klein theory.

    Eernie 1:
    You are right! We will communicate the date of the opening of the visits in due time: I want not to give now a date, because this topic is very delicate, and if I give a date I must be sure of it. But a date will be given, for sure. I am working now only focused on this !!!

    Dear Andrea,
    I know that you and the readers of this site are anxious to find out the date of the TPI report publication. For me, the report would be interesting but my anxiety is directed to the date when your device will be open to public observation. This event does not need any outside reports to achieve your goal for complete conformation of your work. Can you give us a ball park(x months)time that you expect this to happen?

  • Andrea Rossi

    Steven N. Karels:
    I agree with you.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Waiting for the results of a independent system test is like waiting for the birth of your first born. Anticipation but worry that everything will turn out okay.

    I know you have done your preparation and validated the eCat before releasing it to the independent professors. But they “might get it wrong” : this is unlikely since there are all of them to cross-check each other and know that they will be criticized if they do something wrong or were fooled. Have confidence in your “new child”, the eCat will do as it is expected to perform, no better, no worse. Patience is a hard thing to learn, especially quickly (LOL).

  • Andrea Rossi

    Billy Jackson, Frank Acland:

    Dear Andrea,

    The following was posted on E-Cat World today by Billy Jackson, and since it was addressed to you, I repost it here with his permission.

    Re: Andrea Rossi’s Anxiety over Test results:

    Absolutely understandable. You would have to be inhuman to not have anxiety for what Rossi is waiting on.

    This is more than a proof of concept, or even validation. This is the culmination of a world changing life’s work by Rossi that will affect every facet of our world that uses energy. For Rossi himself you’re talking about a man who has struggled in past endeavors and is on the verge of going from obscurity to possibly a household name alongside that of Edison, Tesla, or Einstein.

    This is not a small accomplishment by any means. if the E-cat works and the validation is there.. .the impact this will have on the world and the human race can’t be understated. After this it will just be more and better efficiencies, while possibly shrinking the technology. It won’t happen fast and overnight, but it will happen. Sheer market forces alone will push this technology out to the public and industries.

    Mr Rossi — this is your baby . . . and like any father in the waiting room will tell you … when you hear that first cry … even if its behind closed doors…there is no other feeling like it… Stand Strong we are all waiting with you in support! Thanks for having the courage to challenge what we believe in.

    Continuum Discretum, thanks for the corrections, I’ve definitely had a lesson in philosophy. Probably I should better be writing in more colloquial style for the future. Obviously I was wrong to express myself, also in the content. The terrorist is clearly materialistic, and is a derived ideology from bourgeoise class. The fathers of italian homeland, in their democratic struggle against old democratic regimes in nineteenth century, Mazzini above all, were among the ideologues of the terrorist form of political action. However, I consider to have been quite successful, for now, only to have two sentences criticized by those who are able to study the Phenomenology. I’d like to continue and possibly be criticized moreover by you via private email, if you agree. To return to the issue of cultural matrix in Communist and Catholic terrorism of the 70s in Italy, I’ll only note that the first were inspired by marxism, then betrayed it by their actions, as it is clear from your examplar definitions of materialism and dialectics. I have direct knowledge of the environment from which those who have recently attacked Rossi come, despite they not having had anything to do with acts of political violence, of course. With regard to the violence of Catholic inspiration, it has been present in Italy at that time (and before!) and that makes me conclude that neither idealism, in this case the belief in a god, is a guarantee of scientific and non-violent behavior. I have personally known quite materialistic atheists who given great contribution to the development of science (even Einstein perhaps was not an atheist, but was not provided with faith either, may be call him a spinozian?) and, on the other hand, men of faith who know everything about Thomas Aquinas but are quite unable to accept Kant critics, and probably would favor a return to an obscurantist era. I consider myself a dialectic materialist, I have ideals of course but I’m not an idealist, nor metaphysical, neither reactionary nor dialectical. I think that marxism is the only scientific interpretation of the world, able to realize a future without reactionary violence and inspired by scientific criteria of social progress.

    @Continuum Discretum,

    Thank you for your very interesting message.

    The ‘cute, white, living rabbit that comes out of a worn out, filthy hat’, is the synthesis (or new knowledge or consciousness), as the outcome of the conflict between thesis and anti-thesis, isn’t it? The theosofy of Alice Bailey and Benjamin Creme also know this dialectics as the fundamental soul-ray of humanity (as a whole), called the 4th ray of ‘harmony through conflict’, that also explains the history of humanity… And it’s also interesting to know that, according to Benjamin Creme, Hegel, who developed the concept of dialectics, had a 4th ray soul… So yes, humanity and its science evolve in a dialectic way, also demonstrated on this forum, and hopefully ‘pulling a cute, white, living rabbit out of a worn out, filthy hat’ on every turn… 😉

    Hi Andrea,

    Is the Rossi effect associated with Quantum Tunneling?

  • Continuum Discretum

    Dear orsobubu,
    I have to correct your wrong usage of the term “idealism” in following sentences:

    “This idealism, deeply opposed to marxist materialism, was also typical of an italian catholic vision from which other terrorist groups came, also inspired by a sort of divine mission of social justice.”
    […]
    “So, the violent anti-Rossi crusade of some journalists comes from a violent, idealist background typical of the 70s and ends today with fundamentalist idealism of official and ‘good’ leftist science.”

    This mistake could be excused if it was written in colloquial language (“idealism” as a mere ethical stance), but since your diction suggests some sort of scientific reflection, it has to be corrected. Not only is “idealism” an inappropriate term concerning the form of expression, but on top of that – concerning the content – actually the opposite is true: The – materialistic – aspect of Dialectic Materialism is the culprit for the anarchic and terroristic aberrations of some parts of 20th century leftist “culture”.
    As everywhere we see right here how Dialectics evolves and turns opposites into each other. The term “dialectic” in “Dialectic Materialism” is a remnant of the Idealism of Hegel: Marx was his scholar (in mind) and his theories are deeply grounded in Hegel’s idealistic analysis of the structures of physical and social reality. Only because of the acceptance of some eternal structure of matter, Marx was able to work on the concept of “law of history”. If he would have been only a materialist, then there would be no necessity for restrictions on how society could govern its own fate, and he would have advocated instant anarchic revolution without reflection on historic conditions.
    Yet again Dialectic shows its omnipresent force: Materialism could be interpretated as total determinism, so that everything is subjected to the laws of matter. In such a context it would be “idealistic” to believe in free will and the possibility to change and write history.
    The solution to this seeming paradox is Dialectics itself: There is no materialism without Idealism. We could even say, that there is no Idealism without materialism, but that would be confusing. More accurate is: There is no Idealism without matter. Because materialism is not able to reflect on Weltanschauungen / not able to describe mental standpoints with its pure materialistic terms, it is not able to encompass neither Idealism, nor itself as a stance of mind. Idealism on the other hand is not only able to include the (mental) form of materialism, but on top of that even able to deduce its content (the structure of matter) and make its principles fundamental part of its own corpus.
    That’s the reason why Hegel was able to anticipate advances in Theoretical Physics of 20th century.
    Why unidealistic pseudo-scientists fail to improve our knowledge of the universe.
    And why a philosopher inspired by God like Andrea Rossi has to do their job.
    The answer to the questions of science lies in the diligent study of Dialectics, compared to which the theory of general relativity reads like bedtime reading. To those without knowledge of the Idea, the elucidation of its process appears like the mysterious act of pulling a cute, white, living rabbit out of a worn out, filthy hat.

    orsobubu,

    I would love to work with Andrea Rossi’s team. But being added to an existing team would be very difficult and perhaps, non-productive. Though, I would find it fascinating.

    A more realistic hope might be working for Andrea Rossi in applications and technical support of sales sometime in the near future. That would be a dream job.

    But for now, if I could intermittently add some insight to Andrea Rossi, let him know what we are thinking and reacting to the announcements and posting as the eCat story is told and be supportive of his work, that for me will be sufficent.

    This product has the potential of a major shift in energy production, if it is true. We must always maintain a neutral perspective and we must not fall into blind obdience or faith.

  • Steven N. Karels

    Koen,

    One gram of converted mass = 2700 MWHrs of energy. Known nuclear reactions convert some form of material into another form of material with some loss of mass (converted to energy). The resultant material has been called “nuclear ash” and is telltale as to which reaction is happening.

    Unless this is a matter & anti-matter operation, there should be some “nuclear ash”. However, the amount of “nuclear ash” may be very small.

    If an eCat is run at 10kW average output for one year, about 87 MWhrs of energy would have been produced assuming continuous operation. Therefore, about 0.03 grams of mass would have been consumed. The amount of mass compared to the mass of an eCat (kilograms) would be very difficult to measure. By analyzing the spent fuel, it may be possible to deduce the “nuclear ash” unless it escapes into the test environment (e.g., helium). The lack of a “nuclear ash” is troubling as it should be observable in grams of material (unless it escaped).

  • Koen Vandewalle

    Steven,
    Why must there be ash?
    I think there is no ash.

    Kind regards,
    Koen

    Steven Karels,

    nobody here is more qualified than you in understanding these mysterious issues.
    I remember months ago you had done the calculations to guess the average COP of a Cat reactor and Mouse activator combo system. Now what are your best up-to-date estimates? For an expert in thermal engineering like you, and this is true for other visitors of JONP, wouldn’t be fantastic to be able to work directly together with Rossi’s team? This is something that I’ve always wondered.

  • Andrea Rossi

    Giuliano Bettini:
    1- no, it is not
    2- no, it is not either
    The anxiety is generated by the immense importance of a test made by a third independent party of experts of the field, in a neutral laboratory, for a long time, collecting millions of data examined for months, analyzed in independent laboratories of different Universities, for the first time in the history of LENR. Let me make a simple example: you have to sustain an exam , a difficult one, in a University’s Faculty; you have studied well, you made tests by yourself, you are sure to have understood the matter, but the exam is long and the result of the exam will be important for your future career: shouldn’t you be anxious? That’s my feeling, aggravated from the fact that I have not a clue of when there will be the results and I have not a clue either about the work that the Professors are doing.

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    Below is a link to an article from eurekalert on the synthesis of Nickel Carbon Fullerenes. The lead author (‘Andrey Popov’) is not sure of the practical applications of this new structure.
    Maybe you will find a new use for this in your work.

    http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2014-06/miop-mon060614.php

    Nickel-Fullerene regards,

    Method of nickel-carbon heterofullerenes synthesis presented

    Russian, British and Spanish scientists presented a new method of nickel-carbon heterofullerenes synthesis

    Scientists from several British, Spanish and Russian research centers (MIPT, Institute for Spectroscopy RAS, Kurchatov Institute and Kintech Lab Ltd) have come up with a method of synthesizing a new type of nickel-carbon compound. The article titled Formation of nickel-carbon heterofullerenes under electron irradiation has been published by Dalton Transactions and is available as a pre-print at arxiv.org. The first author of the article is Alexander Sinitsa, an MIPT student, and the leading author is Andrey Popov (Institute for Spectroscopy RAS, 1989 MIPT graduate).

    Heterofullerenes are hollow molecules with a nearly-spherical shape, which, unlike the typical fullerenes, contain atoms of elements other than carbon. Such compounds were synthesized quite a while ago, in 1991, but till now no heterofullerenes containing nickel, or any other transition metal, have been obtained. Yet, as the authors point out in their article, transition metals are now being studied as catalysts in the synthesis of carbon nanotubes and graphene.

    “I’d like to emphasize that the majority of calculations have been performed by a student. Hopefully, students regularly visit the MIPT site and get inspired by their colleagues’ successes. If you are especially interested in the role of MIPT graduates in research, then I can tell you that Irina Lebedeva graduated from the Institute in 2008, and Andrey Knizhnik, perhaps in 1999, but I’m not exactly sure about the year. I’d also like to point out that Elena Bichoutskaia (a Saint Petersburg State University Faculty of Physics graduate) is a member of the Russian diaspora abroad, which is typical of international cooperation of Russian scientists,” Andrey Popov told the MIPT Press Service.

    The synthesis of nickel heterofullerenes is supposed to be carried out under electron irradiation, which is used in high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) in order to obtain detailed snapshots showing, if needed, separate atoms. A number of previous experiments conducted by various research groups demonstrated that electronic irradiation can also be applied to synthesize a variety of nanostructures, e.g., one-layer carbon fullerene-filled nanotubes were transformed into two-layer ones.

    Using the latest data obtained from the HRTEM images and the results of computer modelling by methods of molecular dynamics, the scientists have shown the potential possibility to transform graphene flakes with nickel cluster into nickel-carbon heterofullerene.

    The scientists, though, are not sure about the practical application of such heterofullerenes. According to Andrey Popov, “these new-type molecules can reveal some interesting electronic, magnetic, and optic features, or it may be possible to combine them with some organic functional complexes of interest to biologists and physicians. They can also be used to create 3D organic-metallic structures to store hydrogen”.

    In their work, the researchers developed and applied an authentic algorithm for modelling electron-nanostructure interactions. This allows taking into account both fast (just tens of picoseconds) and slow (lasting for full seconds) processes. The fast processes are associated with electron collisions, and the slow ones relate to molecular relaxation.

    Caro Andrea Rossi,
    lei parla giustamente di “ansietà”.
    E’ vero, ma le motivazioni possono essere le più varie.
    Per quanto mi riguarda, non lo dico su Facebook perché i miei amici Joseph Fine, Don Witcher eccetera eccetera non approverebbero, io sono totalmente disinteressato ai successi commerciali a breve termine e anche al “mercatu veritas”. Mi interessa l’ingegneria ma meglio ancora la Fisica. Ciò che penso sia importante è aver scoperto qualcosa di veramente nuovo, in Fisica. Con tutte le conseguenze che ci possiamo immaginare.
    Quindi, tutto sommato, la cosa che mi lascia più perplesso è questa SUA ansietà, rispetto al “positive or negative”. Posso capire, o intuire, le ragioni più svariate, per chi ci ha dedicato tanto della propria vita. Non capisco invece i dettagli. Cerco di spiegarmi in sintesi, anche se con parole che mi scuso se imprecise. “Positive or negative” CHE COSA?
    1 E’ il timore che dei test negativi vanifichino tutto il lavoro fatto da una vita su un prodotto?
    oppure
    2 è il timore che dei testi terzi, accurati, dimostrino infine che c’era un malinteso e tutto quanto è stato un’illusione?
    Mentre 1 non mi interessa, invece 2 mi rende ansioso. I ragazzi degli acceleratori hanno continuato a studiare la Fisica sbattendo particelle le une sulle altre, qui invece si aprirebbe un capitolo del tutto nuovo. Anzi un libro del tutto nuovo.
    ………
    Vabbè, comunque sia
    ad maiora
    Giuliano Bettini.

    Dear Andrea,
    you refer to “anxiety.”
    It ‘s true, but the reasons can be varied.
    As for me, I do not say so on Facebook because my friends Joseph Fine, Don Witcher et cetera would not approve, I’m totally uninterested in commercial success in the short term and also to the ” In Mercatu Veritas”. I’m interested in engineering, but even better in Physics. What I think is important is to have discovered something new, in Physics. With all the consequences that we can imagine.
    So, all in all, the thing that leaves me puzzled is YOUR anxiety, regarding to the “positive or negative”. I can understand, or guess, the most different reasons, for those who have dedicated so much of their lives. I do not understand the details instead. I try to explain in a nutshell, albeit with words that I apologize if inaccurate. “Positive or Negative” WHAT?
    1 Is it the fear of negative tests that undermine all the work done by a life of a product?
    or
    2 Is it a fear that “third” texts, accurate, finally prove that there was a misunderstanding and everything was an illusion?
    While I do not care 1, 2 instead makes me anxious. The “accelerators guys” are continuing to study the Standard Model crashing particles , but here it would open a whole new chapter. In fact a whole new book.
    ………
    Oh well, anyway
    ad maiora
    Giuliano Bettini.

    orsobubu,

    I still have issues with the Rossi effect. Based on previous postings, it is as though no “nuclear ash” is observed. I assume Andrea Rossi has either not seen it (e.g., it may have escaped the test apparatus during long tests) or it may be that he has observed something but identifying would endanger his intellectual property rights or the duration and power output (i.e., the total energy produced) has been insufficient to produce significant amounts of “nuclear ash”.

    I also have problems understanding the eCat control mechanisms. Heat and “vibrations” are described along with “other” effects. But running in self-sustaining mode seems to me like it would be out-of-control but this does not appear to be the case so some other mechanism must be in place during self-sustaining mode to keep it from running away.

    So what we (the supporters but uninformed of the Rossi secrets) see is a potential energy device that is clean and low cost. But most scientists and engineers are lead to believe the LENR is “pseudo-science” and automatically dismiss it as measurement error or the work of a con-man. To this end, I think Andrea Rossi has chosen the most effective path – demonstrate the technology where there can be no chemically based explanation. Don’t publish the theory, let others try to explain the independently measured results. Hopefully, the independent researchers will have done their homework and have a bulletproof analysis and report.

    Dear Editor

    I am the author of the book Quantum Ring Theory, published in 2006 in a book form by the Bauu Instute Press.

    http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/quantum-ring-theory-wladimir-guglinski/1100923587?ean=9780972134941

    I would like to submit for publication my book THE MISSED U-TURN , in which it is explained for the laymen the foundations and models proposed in my Quantum Ring Theory,

    In 2011 two important experiments had been published, and they defy some foundations of the current Theoretical Physics.

    In order to explain those two experiments, the journal Nature published in 2012 the paper How Atomic Nuclei Cluster and the European Physical Journal D published in 2013 the paper The quantum vacuum as the origin of the speed of light.

    The results of the two experiments had been predicted in my book Quantum Ring Theory. And the journal Nature published an argument proposed in the page 137 of my book, while in the paper published by the European Physical Journal it is proposed a structure for the space which is the same structure proposed in my book.

    So, the journals Nature and European Physical Journal published plagiarisms of some ideas proposed in my book.

    And in 2013 the journal Nature published the paper Studies of pear-shaped nuclei using accelerated radioactive beams, describing the anomalous shape of the nucleus Ra224. In order to explain that anomally, the Prof. Butler of the Liverpool University had proposed the existence of an z-axis within the nuclei.

    The existence of the z-axis had been predicted in my Quantum Ring Theory, and it is mentioned in several pages of my book. In the page 133 it is written:

    ——————————————————————————
    The distribution about the z-axis is a nuclear property up to now unknown in Nuclear Physics
    ——————————————————————————

    I am sending an attachment where I explain with details the plagiarisms by Nature and European Physical Journal D.

    I decided to publish the book with your publishing house

    I dont care about to make money. So, I let you the decision for the format of publication. I also think that the most interested format is the open acess format, in order to get the larger audience possible.

    I will send an email to Victor Riecansky, telling him that, since the Cambridge International Science Publishing did not publish the book in the time accorded in the Aggreement, then I am giving up of publishing the book by CISP, because the book will be published by your publishing house.
    I will send the email with a copy to you

    Therefore, I will sign the Transfer of Copyright Aggreement with your publishing house.

    I am sending a copy of this email for Victor Riecansky.

    Dear Sir,
    Good Day. We estimated the cost of publishing your book which is as following –

    (a) only open access publishing as a PDF file on the web site and maintaining it for about 10 years – US $ 4000/-

    (b) Open Access Publishing + Print Copies (500) – US $ 5000/-

    (c) Only Print copies (500) – US $ 4000/-

    I am interested to know if you can contribute (at least partially) towards this cost. It is no way compulsion. However, since ours is a small company, it will help.
    We will go for the first option of Open Access publishing.

    Dear Dr. Prakash

    It is hard for me to contribute for the publication.

    Besides, there is other reason why I cannot contribute, as I explain as follows

    When an author has a bad theory with no scientific merit, and he wants to publish her, he needs to pay for the publication, since his theory is bad.

    I never paid a cent for publication of my theory. Because I always had started from the following viewpoint: if the theory has no scientific merit, she does not deserve to be published. And so it makes no sense to pay for her publication.

    I never used to help my theory by contributing with money for her publication. I left to herself the task to conquest her own publication. If she had no scientific merit, then she would not deserve to be published.
    My theory is being successful in getting by herself her own publication, thanks to her scientific merit, since many of her predictions are being confirmed by several experiments along the years. And in 2012 and 2013 she had been even plagiarized by two of the most important worldwide scientific journals.

    If I had payed to publish my theory , my oponents would claim that she has no scientific merit, saying that the reason why I had to pay for her publication was the missing of merit of the theory.

    And I would like to keep the pride of to say that I had never paid a cent for the publication of my theory.

    I hope you may understand my reasons

    regards
    Wladimir Guginski

    Steven Karels, Hank Mills,

    I will try to explain some aspects of these attacks, at least for what concerns the Italian side. It is true that scientific evidence and the market will lead to the truth; but I believe that these characters are not actually much driven by an inability to scientific analysis, irrationality, hatred, jealousy, hostility, etc., but in a way that they are really idealistically “sincere” and “honest” in their actions. In the sense that they really believe they are right and they were invested with the task of leading a crusade in the name of science.

    Their cultural backgrounds is absolutely on the left side, and refers to the italian marxist culture in the 70s. Of course, there is nothing farther from the truth of their interpretation of marxism, so that one could apply to their case the famous phrase by Marx himself: If this is marxism, I am not a marxist. For a true dialectical materialist, the strength of technological, economic, social development, in a word the structure of the production relationships, is so dominant that it drags with it any superstructural ideology, moral, law, politics, religion, science, etc.

    The direction of this development tends inexorably to the maximum socialization of the means of production and, ultimately, toward anarchy and true freedom of man. The opposition the capitalist ruling class is trying to do in this process is not only obvious, but it is even Marxist, in the sense that it is a reactionary struggle necessary for the development of revolutionary working class consciousness. In this struggle, the wealth that will be destroyed by capitalism will be so great and the conditions under which the society will plummet so miserable that just a small, bloodless shove will be needed by a minority of organized workers to dialectically seize the power and finally start a new economy without money, without exploitation, based on limitless energy and automation.

    To the contrary, in the head of many italian “marxists” in the seventies, the intellectual must take a revolutionary, violent action, even by terrorism, a kind of superhero delirium, to show the ignorant people who the enemy is and to provoke an insurrection even if the historical moment is anything but the right one and actually people just try to stay better within the existing capitalist relationships. This idealism, deeply opposed to marxist materialism, was also typical of an italian catholic vision from which other terrorist groups came, also inspired by a sort of divine mission of social justice. Part of these intellectuals now attacking Rossi comes exactly from these cultures.

    After the failure of their attempts over the 70s and 80s, after the resumption of liberalism by Reagan and the fall of USSR (which they interpreted as the home of communism rather than as state capitalism), a part of them went directly to the service of capitalists in exchange for a rapid career; others retreated to more reformist themes, such as environmentalism, trade unionism, labor rights, the defense of immigrants, etc. Some results of this transformation were paradoxical, if you think about the origins of Marxism, which pursued the maximum production and absence of the capitalist crisis and wars, because led to believe in pauperism (equal poverty for everyone), to sustain the good, social, state capitalism, to the defense of the strict application of the bourgeois laws, etc, on the assumption that european capitalism can be a benign, humane and progressive, as opposed to the bad American liberal imperialism.

    So, the violent anti-Rossi crusade of some journalists comes from a violent, idealist background typical of the 70s and ends today with fundamentalist idealism of official and “good” leftist science. They forget that the origin of the problem lies in the social mechanism of exploitation that produces the money itself, believing instead that there is bad money made from the scam and theft, and good money produced in an ethical and humane system. In this sense I believe that they feel genuinely and sincerely invested in the moral authority to violently attack their enemies, even if it may end up being an instrument of some capitalistic camps and interests.

    JoNP, Andrea Rossi, Magnus Holm,
    Does your computer model allow to explain the Rossi-Effect ?
    Not necessarily in quantities or energy out vs energy in, but the basic principles.

    The experimental evidence, derived from the TIP report of 2013, which is the real world event and generates the pathway to the development of usefull devices, does not explain very much about how LENR works.
    It learns that “this device” can produce Y kWh output for X kWh input, depending on a group of parameters.
    I can imagine that the nuclear scientists are doing measurements on the gamma radiations. It was mentioned that gammas in the range of tens of keV are produced while the E-cat operates.
    I find it disturbing that the critics talk so much about peripherals as: who paid for the travel expenses and the catering, and the authority or non-authority of observers, and nothing about the proven Gammas, which can only be produced by this new kind of reaction. If you only produce “one” gamma of this energy, then the reality of the effect is proven. Please correct me if this is a erroneous view.

    Of course, the economic viability depends on the whole technology that you and your team are developing and improving right now.

    We do not need the opinion of the last Roman Emperor on the use of smartphones, firearms and aircraft in 2015, although he was allways officially right in his age.

    Kind Regards,
    Koen

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    During your early experiments with nickel and various materials as a “catalyst”:

    1. Did you ever experiment with other materials than nickel, such as palladium?

    2. Did you ever try deuterium gas other than what is in natural hydrogen gas?

    3. Did you find several materials that acted as a catalyst?

    What inspired me to begin, to be honest and sincere, has been the work of Prof Fleishmann and Prof Pons when it has been announced the first time. This is a merit they deserve, even if the electrolysis concept was, and still is, wrong. The electrolysis brings nowhere. Obviously, this is only my opinion and, as such, can be wrong.
    —————————————-

    Dear Andrea
    I suppose what you said is concerning the technological feasibility, since it is hard to replicate the cold fusion experiments made via electrolysis, and so it is hard to develop a technology viable to be placed in market.

    As I also suppose that you are agree that Fleishmann and Pons did succeed to get anomalous heat

    Dear Andrea Rossi,

    I agree wholeheartedly with your sentiments. I have found that my most hardened critics can become strong allies as time passes and you demonstrate that which they oppose, provided you do not insult or injure them. Not only have we all made mistakes, but more than likely we have been on the wrong side of a disagreement. I do not understand the animosity regarding LENR. It seems to me, like any question of science, the evidence will lead to truth, one way or the other. I do see the possibility that fear of LENR, in that it might change the economics, can bring out the base elements of a human, to his or her loss of reason and objectivity. Fear is a strong emotion, yet as thinking humans, we can overcome that fear with reason.

  • Hank Mills

    Hello Andrea,

    I understand the hate you are experiencing from some parties, although I totally disagree with them. For example, in one case they can barely admit to themselves, or others, that your technology is real. They state that if it really does work how it has been described, it is beyond what they hoped could be achieved with LENR in todays age. They go so far to say it would be a near energy panacea. At the same time, they act extremely hostile because they can’t believe you are the individual to develop this technology. They criticise and attack your research and test methods and bash your character. I think most of this hostility comes from jealousy. They did not develop the tech, cannot latch onto it some how, and have been unsuccessful at copying it themselves. This infuriates them.

    Walter Gentili:
    I did not publish your comment because it insults 3 journalists. I cannot accept insults, even if aimed to my “critics”. As Oscar Wilde said, “I do not agree with them, but I will fight to death to defend their freedom of opinion”. As a matter of fact, it is normal that we have enemies, competitors, critics. What I do not understand is hatred and insults. We are making a scientific work, our work has been tested and is still under exam and R&D and we are waiting for the results, that could be positive or negative, as I always said. All the rest is useless noise and I am exclusively focused on my job, now on the 1 MW plant: if it will work well, we will have a good product, otherwise we will have not. Both possibilities are true. About my past, let me be simple:
    1- I have been acquitted from the accusations that made possible my arrest: see http://www.ingandrearossi.com
    2- indipendently from the point 1: every man who has made mistakes in his past, after he has paid his debt with the justice has the right to be resilient and make up his life. I am working on the LENR now and the facts for which I have been put in jail happened between 1989 and 1995: 20 years ago and have nothing to do with LENR
    3- who is without sin can throw the first stone
    Please do not insult my enemies: we must not make their same errors.
    Warm Regards,
    Andrea Rossi

    Giuliano Bettini:
    What I found in my experiments does not matter. Anybody can say ” I have found the moon in the well”. Let’s wait for the results of the report of the Professors of the Third Independent Party. I know they are making rigorous, long and difficult analysis in their Swedish laboratories of different Institutes, because, they told me, no one University has all the necessary instrumentation, so they need the help of different laboratories and this takes time. Let them work in peace. We have to be patient; I understand, and sympathize, the anxiety of the public about this issue, but think to my own anxiety…if I can menage it, I think everybody can. Think what will happen to me should the results be negative…still a possible output, though, as far as I know.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Dear Andrea,
    thanks for the kind response. I wonder (irrespective from the 3rd party analysis):
    surely you have done your measurements after a few Hot Cat long run test. Do you sometimes find some change in the isotopic composition?
    (I mean: you and/or your team).
    How would Joseph Fine, isotopic regards,
    Giuliano Bettini.

  • georgehants

    Dear Mr Rossi, just silly English humour about, I believe your report will be very positive, (although it could be negative).
    I give Spiritual prayers that it is positive, as your work has the potential to change the World forever.
    As long as those in power allow it’s free path to a Wonderful equality for all mankind.
    Best Wishes
    George

    Dr. Rossi, I don’t know if this link will work.
    But if it does, you will know what plans Countries around the World have for Wind Energy from now until 2050.
    Their plans are huge.
    However, when E-Cat comes on the scene they will have
    serious competition.
