The classical Michelson-Morley experiments: A new solution to an old problem

The classical "ether-drift" experiments in gaseous media (Michelson-Morley, Miller, Illingworth, Joos, ...) have always shown small, irregular residuals, usually interpreted as typical instrumental

Relativity Principles and Theories from Galileo to Einstein

Motion is always relative to something. Is this thing a concrete body like the earth, is it an abstract space, or is it an imagined frame? Do the laws of physics depend on the choice of reference?

The Informational Conception and the Base of Physics

The model is experimentally testable and yet now makes be more clear a number of basic problems in special relativity, quantum mechanics, and, rather probably, in [now – in Newtonian] gravity.

Squaring the Circle is a famous geometry problem going all the way back to the ancient Greeks. It is the great quest of constructing a square with the same area as a circle using a compass and

Odometers and Clocks in Introductory Relativity

The geometric approach to special relativity emphasizes the proper length (as measured by odometers) and the proper time as (measured by ordinary clocks). These properties are intrinsic to the

The mass-energy equivalence and length contraction are consistent with compression of a fluidic aether with a speed of sound equal to the speed of light

The Lorentz aether theory was the mathematically equivalent precursor to the special theory of relativity (SR). It assumed the existence of a static aether filling space in which particles are

A Scheme for Measuring Anisotropy of One‑Way Light Speed (Part I)

Einstein's special relativity theory asserts or implies that one‑way light speed is isotropic in every frame of reference for which the laws of mechanics hold good. Measurement of one‑way light speed

Time Dilation of Moving Clocks as a Consequence of Length Contraction

In an article by Rindler [1], claiming that Einstein (1905) was the first to realize (in sec. 4 of [2]) that observers of moving clocks consider them to run slow, the last footnote reads: Professor

Einstein ’ s Big Mistake

I. Einstein overlooked the fact that the speed of light, as it occurs in the Lorentz transformation equations, is determined by the density and elasticity of a physical medium which pervades all of
