In this Episode, I present Part 1 of a 2 part series that I delivered at this year’s AAAS/NPA conference held at the University of New Mexico. This presentation looks at the impact of bi-directional movement in generating the equations associated with moving systems. It establishes the foundational equations that are used by the leading models (e.g., Einstein, Lorentz, Michelson-Morley) as well as by the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems. This presentation also uses the math associated with an Incomplete Coordinate System to graphically explain key mathematical elements that are found in Einstein’s 1905 paper.

## Episode 16 (Video) – Part 1 – Moving Systems Foundational Equations

## Episode 15 (Video) – Moving Systems (Part 4)

In this episode, **we look at Special Relativity and how it is related to the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems.** After reviewing this video series, I hope that you are left with a better understanding of my model as well as of Einstein’s theory and how the two are related. In addition, I hope that you have a better understanding of Einstein’s derivation as well as how one can reasonably conclude the effects of Time Dilation and Length Contraction if you only have one type of coordinate system instead of two. Lastly, I hope that this material helps you to better understand Einstein’s derivations as given in Sections 2 and 3 of his 1905 paper and in his Relativity book. Part 4 of the series build upon the material presented in the first three parts.

## Episode 14 (Video) – Moving Systems (Part 3)

In this episode, we look at the second of the two types of coordinate systems inherent in the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems; a **Complete Coordinate System**. Part 3 of the series build upon the material presented in Parts 1 and 2.

## Episode 13 (Video) – Moving Systems (Part 2)

In this episode, we look at one of the two types of coordinate systems inherent in the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems; an **Incomplete Coordinate System**. Part 2 of the series build upon the material presented in Part 1.

## Episode 12 (Video) – Moving Systems (Part 1)

In this episode, we review the concepts behind moving systems as used by the Model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems as well as in Special Relativity Theory. This four part video series is based on material delivered at this years AAAS/NPA conference held in April at the University of New Mexico. In Part 1 of the series, I introduce the concepts of a reference (or stationary) coordinate system, a second system (either stationary or moving – most of the times it is thought of as moving), and of an oscillating object.
