Gyrogroup theory [A. A. Ungar, Found. Phys. 27, 881–951 (1997)] enables the study of the algebra of Einstein's addition to be guided by analogies shared with the algebra of vector addition. The capability of gyrogroup theory to capture analogies is demonstrated in this article by exposing the relativistic composite-velocity reciprocity principle. The breakdown of commutativity in the Einstein velocity addition ⊕ of relativistically admissible velocities seemingly gives rise to a corresponding… Expand
Alternative realization for the composition of relativistic velocities
The reciprocity principle requests that if an observer, say in the laboratory, sees an event with a given velocity, another observer at rest with the event must see the laboratory observer with minusExpand

Composition of velocities and momentum transformations in a scator-deformed Lorentz metric
The transformations of coordinates, velocities and momenta between inertial frames are described via real scator algebra. This algebra imposes a hyperbolic metric that is identical to the LorentzExpand
κ-Poincaré phase space: speed of massless particles and relativity of spacetime locality
The study of phase-space constructions based on the properties of the κ-Poincare Hopf algebra has been a very active area, mostly because of its possible applications in the phenomenology ofExpand
Effect of Thomas Rotation on the Lorentz Transformation of Electromagnetic fields
TLDR
The importance of Thomas rotation in the calculation of physical quantities like electromagnetic fields in the relativistic regime is assessed and the electromagnetic field tensor for general three dimensional successive boosts in the particle’s rest frame as well as the laboratory frame is calculated.

From light-speed state to the rest: new representation for energy-momentum
New representation for energy-momentum of relativistic particle near zero-mass point is found. Formulae of the energy-momentum are expressed via counterpart of the rapidity which provides aExpand
From light-speed state to the rest: new representation for energy-momentum
In this paper, we introduce a new concept of rapidity and define formulae for energy and momentum as functions of the new rapidity, we denominate "counter-rapidity". The correspoding velocity isExpand
Thomas rotation and Mocanu paradox -- not at all paradoxical
Non-commutativity of the Einstein velocity addition, in case of non-collinear velocities, seemingly gives rise to a conflict with reciprocity principle. However, Thomas rotation comes at a rescue andExpand
The hyperbolic derivative in the Poincaré ball model of hyperbolic geometry
The generic Mobius transformation of the complex open unit disc induces a binary operation in the disc, called the Mobius addition. Following its introduction, the extension of the Mobius addition toExpand
