Various second-order optical tests of special relativity are discussed within the framework of the test theory developed previously. Owing to the low accuracy of the Kennedy-Thorndike experiment, the Lorentz contraction is known by direct experiments only to an accuracy of a few percent. To improve this-accuracy several experiments are suggested. 
KINEMATICAL TEST THEORIES FOR SPECIAL RELATIVITY: A COMPARISON
A comparison of certain kinematical test theories for Special Relativity including the Robertson and Mansouri–Sext test theories is presented and the accuracy of the experimental results testing
Quantum tests of the foundations of general relativity
A new test theory for describing tests of fundamental principles of special and general relativity is presented. Using a generalized Pauli equation which may be based on a generalized Dirac equation,

Theory and Experiment in Gravitational Physics: Tests of the Strong Equivalence Principle
We discuss tests of the Strong Equivalence Principle. We derive the observable consequences of the Nordtvedt effect, a violation of the equality of acceleration of massive, self-gravitating bodies,
OPTIS: a satellite-based test of special and general relativity
A new satellite-based test of special and general relativity is proposed. For the Michelson-Morley test we expect an improvement of at least three orders of magnitude, and for the Kennedy-Thorndike
Tests of Lorentz Invariance
Tests of Lorentz invariance have been performed in wide variety of fields since Einstein’s special relativity was formulated more than 100 years ago. In this chapter, we will review previous tests of
Mansouri-Sexl Test Theory: The Question of Equivalence between Special Relativity and Ether Theories
The goal of this paper is drawing attention to a mistake confusing discussion upon the alternatives to special theory of relativity (STR). In the Mansouri-Sexl test theory utilized as a mathematical
