# Relativistic contraction and related effects in noninertial frames

@article{Nikoli2000RelativisticCA, title={Relativistic contraction and related effects in noninertial frames}, author={Hrvoje Nikoli{\'c}}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={2000}, volume={61}, pages={032109} }

Although there is no relative motion among different points on a rotating disc, each point belongs to a different noninertial frame. This fact, not recognized in previous approaches to the Ehrenfest paradox and related problems, is exploited to give a correct treatment of a rotating ring and a rotating disc. Tensile stresses are recovered, but, contrary to the prediction of the standard approach, it is found that an observer on the rim of the disc will see equal lengths of other differently…

We study the role of acceleration in the twin paradox. From the coordinate transformation that relates an accelerated and an inertial observer we find that, from the point of view of the accelerated…

By proper co-ordinates of non-inertial observers (shortly — proper non-inertial co-ordinates) we understand the proper co-ordinates of an arbitrarily moving local observer. After a brief review of…
