In the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems, there is no upper limit on the velocity of a moving coordinate system. In order to explain why this is the case, we have to first understand the reasons behind the belief that Einstein’s equation limit velocity. Einstein presents his final equations as:

## The New RelativityChallenge.com (BETA)

I’ve been talking about updating my website for some time. The main goals were 1) to make it easier to update and maintain and 2) make it support dynamic content. This site also integrates the website with the blog. Previously they have been two different sites. While they are now integrated, the main podcast feed still originates from the blog site. I’m hoping to make the transition seamless for those who have already subscribed.

As you navigate the site, you may find that some of the material is changed. Over the next few months, I will be updating the content to bring it in line with my latest thinking and research. For example, in the Mistakes section, I now present only two analysis; one for people comfortable with algebra, and a second for the more advanced person who is comfortable with function syntax and scope rules.

Overall, I am happy with how the new site has turned out and welcome your feedback on what I can do to make it better. So, after you’ve had a chance to navigate around, please feel free to drop me an e-mail at Email@RelativityChallenge.com and let me know what you think.

Cheers!

## Comparison of CICS and SRT Equations

There are several similarities and differences between the models established by Einstein, Newton, and Bryant. The following table illustrates some of the differences for each with respect to their Fixed Point, Wave Front, and One-Half Oscillation equations.

## Length contraction does not occur

In the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems, length contraction does not occur.

## The Twin Paradox Goes Away

In order to understand why the twin paradox goes away, I first have to highlight a point of confusion with Einstein’s transformation equations. In the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems, there are four time equations; one for the time to travel along each of the 3 axes, and one for the amount of time that the coordinate system has been in motion.

## This model applies to all types of waves

In the model of

Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems, the velocity of the wave is represented by the valuew. This variable can take on any value to represent the velocity of wave and medium under consideration. For example, when considering light waves traveling through a vacuum, we replacewwith the value299,792,458meters per second, or by conventionc. When considering light through air, its velocity decreases with increased density. In this case, we would first compute the new velocity and replacewwith that value.

## The speed of light is constant, but can vary by coordinate system

In the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems, the behavior of the phenomena is determined by the characteristics of the coordinate systems.

Consider three different types of coordinate system “spaces”;

## Episode 18 (Video) – Part 2 – Comparative Analysis of Moving Systems Models

In Episode 18, I present Part 2 of a 2 part presentation delivered at the AAAS/NPA Conference held in April 2008 at the University of New Mexico. This presentation compares and contrasts the models presented by Michelson-Morley, Lorentz, Einstein, and myself – clearly outlining the key assumptions behind each model. In addition, I summarize the finding that in two experiments – Ives-Stillwell and Michelson-Morley – that the Model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems yields greater accuracy than their Special Relativity-based equivalents. The following specific points are covered in this presentation.

- Identify the assumptions that make up each of the key Moving System Model
- Explanation of why the original Michelson-Morley Experiment does not support Fresnel’s (Aether-based) or Einstein’s (non Aether-based) theory
- Explanation of why the revised Michelson-Morley Analysis supports Fresnel and the Model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems
- Show that the equations associated with the Model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems produces better predictions than the Special Relativity-based equations for the Ives-Stillwell Atomic Clock experiment

## Episode 17 (Video) – A Look at Einstein’s 1905 Derivation

In Episode 17, we take an advanced look at Einstein’s derivation of the SRT transformation equations given in Section 3 of his 1905 paper to generate the equations and analyze the problem in creating his Tau equation. In the the past, I have reviewed Einstein’s derivation from an algebraic perspective. While that perspective remains valid, a precise analysis and re-examination requires that Einstein’s derivation be reviewed from a functions perspective. While the material in this Episode will be most comfortable to those with an understanding of namespaces, overloaded variables, and functions, it should be appropriate to all viewers interested in increasing their understanding of Special Relativity.

This video assumes some familiarity with functions, which might be considered an Advanced topic for some viewers/listeners. If you are not familiar with the behavior of functions, I encourage you to first watch Episode 8.

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

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.
