Two years ago I pointed out1 what appears to be an inconsistency in the kinematical part of Einstein's special theory of relativity. I repeated this in a slightly different form in a volume published in December last2. No comment has been made on the former publication, either spontaneously or in response to individual requests, and in none of the many reviews of the latter has even an oblique attention to the criticism appeared. In view of its profound and far-reaching consequences if it is… 

Special Relativity -- Applications to astronomy and the accelerator physics

The nature of special relativistic kinematics, its relation to space and time, and the operational interpretation of coordinate transformations is discussed, which is not a textbook on relativity theory.

The Theoretical Evidence against the Special Relativity Transverse Doppler Effect

A summarized analysis is presented of the recent discovery that the special relativity transverse Doppler effect formula is invalid at distances very close to the source of the observed waves. This

Formal statement of the special principle of relativity

The aim of this paper is to develop a precise language in order to provide a precise formulation of the special relativity principle, which is considered as a universal meta-law, which must be valid for all physical laws in all situations.

Relativistic Length Agony Continued

We made an attempt to remedy recent confusing treatments of some basic relativistic concepts and results. Following the argument presented in an earlier paper (Redžic 2008b), we discussed the

Solving the Contradiction of the Michelson – Morley Experiment by the New Special Relativity

Abstract In this paper, it is proposed the phenomenon of contradiction of the Michelson-Morley experiment and the Lorentz Transformations .This contradiction is resolved by new special theory of

The Eotvos Experiment on the verification of equivalence between inertial mass and gravitational mass of a body is famous for its accuracy. A problem is, however, can these experimental results be

Special Theory of Relativity: A Review

Thomas young through his double-slit experiment gave the wave character (frequency and wavelength) To light while Einstein in his photo-electric equation gave it the particle character (Energy and

A Nonstandard Derivation for the Special Theory of Relativity

Using properties of the nonstandard physical world, a new fundamental derivation for all of the effects of the Special Theory of Relativity is given. This fundamental derivation removes all the

Special Relativity for Economics Students

In this note, an elementary account of special relativity is given. The knowledge of basic calculus is enough to understand the theory. In fact we do not use differentiation until we get to the part

Remarks on interpretations of the Eotvos experiment and misinterpretation of E = mc 2

The Eotvos experiment on the verification of equivalence between inertial mass and gravitational mass of a body is famous for its accuracy. A question is, however, can these experimental results be



Relativity and Electromagnetism: An Epistemological Appraisal

This paper follows up the analysis of relativity theory begun by Margenau and Mould, by including electromagnetic theory which in their treatment was tacitly accepted. It is shown that the

particles surrounding each nucleon is always more or less the same for larger atoms. When the number of nucleons overcomes 56, it starts to become effective in reducing the total binding energy
