The shrinkage is expressed most clearly through equations (11) and (12), in which r can be plotted against t, resulting in Eq. (12). The shrinking orbit is then Eq. (14), from which the half right latitude can be plotted as a function of t. The orbit is given correctly by both the lagrangian and hamiltonian methods, so all is self consistent. The dependence of r on time of a binary pulsar can be measured in astronomy and the ECE theory compared with the data.
