## Explaining Why Relativity Requires the Twin Paradox

On May - 20 - 2011

Title

The Twin Paradox: Why it is Required by Relativity

Summary

This paper reveals that when wavelength-based observations are evaluated using a length-based perspective, that evaluation must explain changes in length and time, which Einstein does using Length Contraction and Time Dilation. It further explains that when wavelength-based observations are evaluated using a wavelength-based perspective, there are no changes in length and time, and the resulting mathematical equations yield quantitatively better results.

## The Failure of the Einstein-Lorentz Spherical Wave Proof

Title

The Failure of the Einstein-Lorentz Spherical Wave Proof

Summary

This paper reveals a subtle, yet extremely significant oversight in Einstein’s Spherical Wave Proof. Once identified and corrected, it also shows that the proof fails, which means that Einstein cannot establish the relationship between the constancy of the speed of light and the principle of relativity.

## The Significance of Distinguishing Functions from Algebraic Equations

Title

The Significance of Distinguishing Functions from Algebraic Equations

Summary

This paper answers the question from a syntax perspective:  “Why is the ‘t’ variable in Einstein’s Tau equation different than the ‘t’ variable in the x’=x-vt equation“?  In answering this question, the concepts of scope, namespaces, global variables, and local variables are introduced.

## A Brute-Force Mathematical Challenge to Special Relativity

Title

A Brute-Force Mathematical Challenge to Special Relativity

Summary

This paper uses real values to illustrate the problem with Einstein’s 1905 derivation of the Xi (or X-axis) transformation equation. It also discusses the root cause of the problem and why it has been an illusive problem to uncover.

## Revisiting the Michelson and Morley Experiment

Title

Revisiting the Michelson and Morley experiment to reveal an Earth orbital velocity of 30 kilometers per second

Summary

This paper reevaluates the Michelson-Morley experiment from the perspective of frequency using the superposition of waves principle. This reanalysis reveals their detection of an Earth orbital velocity of 30 km/s.

This finding supports the CICS model and questions special relativity on experimental grounds.

Title

Revisiting the Ives and Stillwell experiment: Comparing the accuracy of SRT against the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems

Summary

This paper compares the predicted results of SRT and the CICS model against the actual results of the Ives Stillwell experiment. CICS is shown to predict the results of the experiment as well as, or better than, SRT.

## Understanding and Correcting Einstein’s 1905 Time Transformation

On February - 7 - 2009

Title

Understanding and Correcting Einstein’s 1905 Time Transformation

Summary

This paper reveals the root cause of the mistake in Einstein’s 1905 paper. It derives the time and length transformations, algebraically, revealing the problem of Einstein’s mistreatment of the time “function” as an “equation.”

## Communicating Special Relativity Theory’s Mathematical Inconsistencies

Title

Communicating Special Relativity Theory’s Mathematical Inconsistencies

Summary

This paper reveals Einstein’s mathematical mistakes in his 1905 paper, his 1912 paper, and his Relativity book.  While the material contained in this paper is accurate, I have found more effective ways of communicating my findings.  Please see Episode 17 in the Podcast section, for example.

## Reexamining Special Relativity

On February - 7 - 2009

Summary
This is my original paper on Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems. It reveals the mistakes in Einstein’s papers as well as offers the corrections to the equations and postulates. It also discusses implications such as the reintroduction of the electro-magnetic ether and the prediction of a Quantum Wave Medium.
