Here is an interesting Q&A from the Journal of Nuclear Physics regarding the connection between the Aharonov-Bohm and Casimir effects and the E-Cat, in light of two papers that readers had posted on the Journal of Nuclear Physics for Andrea Rossi’s attention:
1. Anastasovsky et. al. “Aharonov-bohm effect as the basis of electromagnetic energy inherent in the vacuum” Foundations of Physics Letters,. 2002 https://link.springer.com/article/10.1023/A:1023985620088
2. Cole and Puthoff: “Extracting energy and heat from the vacuum”, Phys. Rev., 1993, http://calphysics.org/articles/CP93.pdf

Recent comments of Tonio and Pekka Janhunen referring to papers of the Aharonov-Bohm and Casimir effects seem confirming your ResearchGate publication. Apparently you weren’t aware of these, otherwise you would have referred them in your paper. Do these papers just confirm of what you have found or do they give you and your team a better understanding of everything you are seeing? It all looks very promising now.
I’m sure you will win this time the tennis game with your wife!
Kind regards, Gerard

You are right, I was not aware of these papers, otherwise I would put them in the references.
These publications surely corroborate what I wrote on Researchgate. The main difference is that the the authors did not use the Clifford algebra, using instead the normal algebra: this wraps up their theoretical intuition in the fog of a complicated mathematical formalism that makes them lose the view of the actual electrons matter. Where we see the spiral movement of the electron, they see a space tortion. Closest to what I wrote is the Nobel lecture of Dirac, wherein he had the intuition of the zitterbewegung and of the fact that an electron, although a Fermion, can have vibrations at the speed of light, while his trajectory has a slower speed.
The sole thing your comment is wrong about is the point related to my tennis familiar confrontations.
So it seems that Rossi believes that using Clifford algebra is very important in order to understand the real mechanism behind the ‘Rossi effect’.
