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… Expand

Part 1: Traditional Analysis Conundrums Although most physicists presume the theoretical basis of relativistically rotating systems is well established, there may be grounds to call the traditionalExpand
Noninertial Observers in Special Relativity and Clock Synchronization Debates
Selleri's arguments that a consideration of noninertial reference frames in the framework of special relativity identify “absolute simultaneity” as being “Nature's choice of synchronization” areExpand
The Unruh effect for eccentric uniformly rotating observers
It is common to use Galilean rotational transformation (GRT) to investigate the Unruh effect for uniformly rotating observers. However, the rotating observer in this subject is an eccentric observerExpand
On Franklin’s relativistic rotational transformation and its modification
Unlike the Lorentz transformation which replaces the Galilean transformation among inertial frames at high relative velocities, there seems to be no such a consensus in the case of coordinateExpand
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 acceleratedExpand
Simultaneity, radar 4 coordinates and the (3+1) point of view about accelerated observers in special relativity
After a review of the 1+3 point of view on non-inertial observers and of the problems of rotating reference frames, we underline that was is lacking in their treatment is a good global notion ofExpand
Proper Co-Ordinates of Non-Inertial Observers and Rotation
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 ofExpand
The transformation of affine velocity and its application to a rotating disk
The aim of the article is to find a transformation that links the local affine velocity of a non-rigid body in the laboratory inertial reference frame S with the centro-affine velocity of motion ofExpand

Special relativity experiments explained from the perspective of the rotating frame
In this paper, we present an explanation of several fundamental tests of special relativity from the perspective of the frame co-moving with a rotating observer. The solution is of great interest forExpand
