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 instrumentalExpand
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 speedExpand
ABOUT A CORRECT INTERPRETATION OF THE CONNECTION BETWEEN CLASSICAL ELECTRODYNAMICS AND THE SPECIAL RELATIVITY
The purpose of this article is to bring the basic ideas of O. D. Jefimenko to the physical and mathematical community about the physical explanation of some theoretical conclusions of the SpecialExpand
Another Circuit Paradox of Hering
In 1911, Hering [1] performed experiments, sketched below, in which a battery-driven circuit included a conducting arm that could rotate while maintaining electrical contact with a trough of mercury.Expand
Copycat Of Relativity
Woldemar Voigt had a theory of covariant wave equation in 1887. The Doppler effect can be applied to establish his theory if the speed of light can be assumed to be invariant in inertial referenceExpand
Doppler Effect In Relativity
The frequency of sound is always different in a different inertial reference frame. The Doppler effect for sound wave and electromagnetic wave is not identical. The main difference is theExpand
Einstein ’ s Big Mistake
  • 2020
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 ofExpand
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 theExpand
On the History of the Radiation Reaction1
Apparently, Kepler considered the pointing of comets’ tails away from the Sun as evidence for radiation pressure of light [2]. Following Newton’s third law (see p. 83 of [3]), one might suppose thereExpand
Relativistic photography with a wide aperture.
TLDR
It is found that a wide aperture requires the shutter to be placed in the detector plane to enable stigmatic images, and a Lorentz-transformation window can correct for relativistic distortion. Expand
