About the temperature of moving bodies
Relativistic thermodynamics is constructed from the point of view of special relativistic hydrodynamics. A relativistic four-current for heat and a general treatment of thermal equilibrium between
Note on the relativistic thermodynamics of moving bodies
We employ a novel thermodynamical argument to show that, at the macroscopic level, there is no intrinsic law of temperature transformation under Lorentz boosts. This result extends the corresponding
There exist different proposals for relativistic temperature transformation: The whys and wherefores
In this letter, by using the properties of the entropy function and the fundamental equation of thermodynamics, we discuss the reasons that there exist different proposals for relativistic
Notes on thermodynamics in special relativity
The foundations of thermodynamics in the special theory of relativity are considered. We argue that, from the phenomenological point of view, the most natural relativistic transformations of heat and
Lorentz transform of black-body radiation temperature
The Lorentz transform of black-body radiation has been investigated from the viewpoint of relativistic statistical mechanics. The result shows that the well-known expression with the directional
Kinetic equilibrium and relativistic thermodynamics
Relativistic thermodynamics is treated from the point of view of kinetic theory. It is shown that the generalized Juttner distribution suggested in (1) is compatible with kinetic equilibrium. The


Does a Moving Body appear Cool?
P. T. LANDSBERG in an interesting note1 suggests that the “true” value of temperature of a moving body at relativistic speeds will appear to be the same as the temperature measured in the inertial
Scalar production in Schwarzschild and Rindler metrics
The procedure used recently by Hawking (1975) to demonstrate the creation of massless particles by black holes is applied to the Rindler coordinate system in flat space-time. The result is that an
Uniformly accelerated finite-time detectors.
The logarithmic ultraviolet divergences reported in the literature are due to the instantaneous switching of the detector, and the usual Planckian spectrum for the excitation probability is recovered in the limit T.
Notes on black-hole evaporation
This paper examines various aspects of black-hole evaporation. A two-dimensional model is investigated where it is shown that using fermion-boson cancellation on the stress-energy tensor reduces the
An Observer moving in the 3° K Radiation Field
IF an observer is situated in a radiation field and observes that the radiation is black-body radiation of temperature T, then a second observer moving with a velocity v relative to the first will
The Theory of Relativity
THE earlier portion of Dr. Carmichael's book is a reprint of the first edition, which received notice in NATURE for March 12, 1914. The later pages, which are grouped together under one large chapter
