# Revaluation of Mbelek and Lachièze-Rey scalar-tensor theory of gravitation to explain the measured forces in asymmetric resonant cavities

@article{Minotti2016RevaluationOM, title={Revaluation of Mbelek and Lachi{\`e}ze-Rey scalar-tensor theory of gravitation to explain the measured forces in asymmetric resonant cavities}, author={Fernando Minotti}, journal={Gravitation and Cosmology}, year={2016}, volume={23}, pages={287-292} }

The scalar-tensor theory of gravitation proposed by Mbelek and Lachièze-Rey has been previously shown to lead to a possible explanation of the forces measured in asymmetric resonant microwave cavities. However, in the derivation of the equations from the action principle some inconsistencies were observed, like no need to vary the electromagnetic invariant in a scalar source term. Also, the forces obtained were too high, in view of reconsideration of the experiments originally reported and of…
