@article{Farhoudi2015EtherAR, title={Ether and Relativity}, author={Mehrdad Farhoudi and Maysam Yousefian}, journal={International Journal of Theoretical Physics}, year={2015}, volume={55}, pages={2436-2454} }

We consider one of the fundamental debates in performing the relativity theory, namely, the ether and the relativity points of view, in a way to aid the learning of the subjects. In addition, we present our views and prospects while describing the issues that being accessible to many physicists and allowing broader views. Also, we very briefly review the two almost recent observations of the Webb redshift and the ultra high energy cosmic rays, and the modified relativity models that have been…

We consider the fact that noticing on the operational meaning of the physical concepts played an impetus role in the appearance of general relativity (GR). Thus, we have paid more attention to the…

Derivation of Generalized Einstein's Equations of Gravitation in Inertial Systems Based on a Sink Flow Model of Particles

Abstract If the fine structure constant α = e 2 /(ℏ c ) were to change, then a number of interpretations would be possible, attributing this change either to variations in the electron charge, the…
