Are your equations compatible with the Lorentz transformations?

Posted by Steven Bryant On February - 7 - 2009

Yes and no. Mathematically, my equations are in agreement with Lorentz’s finding that the equations for the Y and Z axes differ from that of the X axis by a factor of SQRT(1-v^2/w^2).

I differ from Lorentz in two ways. First, I believe he, like Einstein, has dropped a Beta term from the final transformation equations. this creates differences in our final equations and their usage. I also differ from Lorentz is in the interpretation of the equations. Lorentz uses the concept of time contraction to explain the apparent null result of the Michelson-Morley experiment. In my case, I suggest that the difference between the values for the X axis and the Y and Z axis are experimentally measurable. This finding appears to be supported by my analysis of the Michelson-Morley experiment, which returns an actual result of 30 km/s.
