The Dynamics of Moving Bodies without Lorentz's Invariance Part I: time and distance transformations

  title={The Dynamics of Moving Bodies without Lorentz's Invariance Part I: time and distance transformations},
  author={Ramzi Suleiman},
The present article proposes a theory of relativity which disentangles Einstein's relativistic approach from Lorentz's invariance principle, the latter being basically an Ether theory. This modification, termed Complete Relativity (CR) is justified both theoretically and experimentally. On the theoretical side it is argued, as done half a century ago by Herbert Dingle, that the inconsistency in Special Relativity theory (SR) is a result of Einstein's attempt to reconcile the theory with the…

On Reconciling Quantum Theory and Relativity

One of the most important open questions in physics is the possibility of reconciliation, and perhaps unification, between quantum theory and relativity theory. Here I show that a relativity theory

Relativity without Lorentz Invariance Solves the Twin Paradox

The Twin Paradox is one of the most fascinating paradoxes in physics. In Special Relativity, the paradox arises due to the nonexistence of a preferred frame of reference, resulting in both twins

Complete Relativity Predicts the Recently Reported Mass of the Higgs Boson

In two recent articles I have shown that a relativity theory without the Lorentz Invariance Principle, termed Complete Relativity, conforms to quantum mechanics and cosmology. Here I demonstrate that

The Results of Recent Neutrino Velocity Experiments Disprove Special Relativity Theory

The time dilation predicted by Special Relativity Theory is completely determined by the Lorentz Factor. The Invariance Principle, expressed in γ, puts two categorical constraints on the velocity β:



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

Spontaneous Lorentz breaking at high energies

Theories that spontaneously break Lorentz invariance also violate diffeomorphism symmetries, implying the existence of extra degrees of freedom and modifications of gravity. In the minimal model

Lorentz invariance and quantum gravity: an additional fine-tuning problem?

It is explained that combining known elementary particle interactions with a Planck-scale preferred frame gives rise to Lorentz violation at the percent level, some 20 orders of magnitude higher than earlier estimates, unless the bare parameters of the theory are unnaturally strongly fine tuned.

A Complete Relativity Theory Predicts with Precision the Neutrino Velocities Reported by OPERA, MINOS, and ICARUS

The present paper utilizes the recently proposed Complete Relativity Theory (CR) for the prediction of neutrino velocity in a prototypical neutrino velocity experiment. The derived expression for the

On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies

It is known that Maxwell's electrodynamics—as usually understood at the present time—when applied to moving bodies, leads to asymmetries which do not appear to be inherent in the phenomena. Take, for

A SHORT time ago I published in Nature [i] an argument purporting to show that the special theory of relativity, though mathematically selfconsistent, could not correctly describe the facts of nature

Ether-Drift Experiments at Mount Wilson

The observations show that the relative motion of the earth and the ether is probably less than one-sixth the earth's orbital velocity and certainly less thanone-fourth of that of the sun, which is less than 7.5 kilometres per second.

On the relative motion of the Earth and the luminiferous ether

THE discovery. of the aberration of light was soon followed by an explanation according to the emission theory. The effect was attributed to a simple composition of the velocity of light with the
