# Doubly Special Relativity: A New Relativity or Not

@article{Jafari2006DoublySR, title={Doubly Special Relativity: A New Relativity or Not}, author={Nosratollah Jafari and Ahmad Shariati}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2006}, volume={841}, pages={462-465} }

Double Special Relativity theories are the relativistic theories in which the transformations between inertial observers are characterized by two observer‐independent scales of the light speed and the Planck length. We study two main examples of these theories and want to show that these theories are not the new theories of relativity, but only are re‐descriptions of Einstein’s special relativity in the non‐conventional coordinates.

A map between Galilean relativity and special relativity

- Physics
- 2013

A map is discussed that connects, in 1+1 dimensions, Galilei's relativity to Einstein's special relativity. By means of this map it is possible to derive special-relativistic formulas from the…

Is there a map between Galilean relativity and special relativity

- Physics

Mandanici has provided a map which he claims to be a two way map between Galilean relativity and special relativity. We argue that this map is simply a curvilinear coordinate system on a subset of…
