The Synchronization of Clock Rate and the Equality of Durations Based on the Poincar\'{e}-Einstein-Landau Conventions

  title={The Synchronization of Clock Rate and the Equality of Durations Based on the Poincar\'\{e\}-Einstein-Landau Conventions},
  author={Zhao Zheng and Tian Guihua and Liu Liao},
  journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology},
There are two important basic questions in the measurement of time. The first one is how to define the simultaneity of two events occurring at two different places. The second one is how to define the equality of two durations. The first question has been solved by Einstein, Landau and others on the convention that the velocity of light is isotropic and it is a constant in empty space. But no body has answered the second question until today. In this paper, on the same convention about the…

The Meaning of Relativity

In 1921, five years after the appearance of his comprehensive paper on general relativity and twelve years before he left Europe permanently to join the Institute for Advanced Study, Albert Einstein

Science and Hypothesis

RECENT speculations in mathematical physics, and acquiescence in treatment in terms of unimaginable abstractions, have raised a general question about the use of hypothesis as a means of coordinating

Zeroth law of thermodynamics and transitivity of simultaneity

The transitivity of thermal equilibrium is equivalent to the transitivity of clock rate synchronization. The condition of clock rate synchronization in general relativity is shown, which is weaker

The Principle of Relativity

II. AT the root of what are generally thought of as our intuitive notions of space and time lies the conception of simultaneous instants at different points. The sensations by which we actually

Special Theory of Relativity

Two years ago I pointed out1 what appears to be an inconsistency in the kinematical part of Einstein's special theory of relativity. I repeated this in a slightly different form in a volume published

The Foundation of Science

To address the question “What is the foundation of science?” I base my response on the two substantive constructs of the question: science and foundation.
