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.

## Episode 11 (Video) – Michelson-Morley Experiment AAAS/NPA Conference Presentation

In this episode, I delivery a presentation entitled Revisiting the Michelson-Morley Experiment to Reveal and Earth Orbital Velocity of 30 km/s. This presentation was originally given at the 15th Annual NPA conference on April 11, 2008 at the University of New Mexico. The conference was held in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the session was attended by both AAAS and NPA participants.

## Episode 10 – Questions & Answers and Recap of Key Findings

In Episode 10, I answer several questions that have been sent in by listeners over the past several months. In addition, we will recap three of key findings we’ve discussed in the first 9 episodes of the podcast series. These three points are the finding of a math problem in Einstein’s derivation, the implication of bi-directional movement on the theory, and the improved accuracy of the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems equations.

## The Goal of Scientific Experiments

Experiments are used to confirm the predictions of models and theories. While they cannot positively confirm the existence of a single theory as the only way of explaining the result, they can be used to validate the predictions of the model or theory.

Some proponents of SRT suggest that Einstein’s theory is the only theory that is experimentally supported by experiments like Michelson-Morley or Ives-Stillwell. This section will explore this assertion with surprising results!

**Comparing SRT to the CICS Model**

The Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems model offers corrections to Einstein’s equations, introduces a new set of equations, and offer predictions that differ from those defined by SRT. Since it corrects specific problems with SRT, it must offer equal or better quantitative predictions of the experimental results.

## For Special Relativity Supporters

RelativityChallenge.Com invites you to participate in creating the next chapter in Modern Physics. The model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems offers opportunities to expand our understanding of space, time, and physics in general. The findings presented at RelativityChallenge.Com and accompanying papers represent a launching point for continued research in wave and particle behaviors.

New questions have come up as a result of research into the Model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems. These questions should be answered by the Special Relativity Community.

- Einstein defines the Tau function as τ=t-(vx’)/(c^2-v^2). Define the meaning of this function and its key function parameters; t and x’.
- In Einstein’s Tau function, what is the meaning of vx’/(c^2-v^2)? Include a picture that explains this meaning.
- Explain the meaning of the function invocation : τ(x’, 0, 0, x’/(c-v)).
- Explain the meaning of the function invocation: τ(0, 0, 0, y/sqrt(1-v^2/c^2)).
- Explain the meaning of the function invocation: τ(0, 0, 0, z/sqrt(1-v^2/c^2)).
- Explain the meaning of the function invocation: τ(x’, y, z, t).
- Explain any differences between the answer to question 6 and question 3.
- Explain how namespaces and variable overloading applies or does not apply to Einstein’s derivation.

When one theory is shown to be incorrect, a new model needs to build support for it to take hold. Given this, I offer several ways in which you can help establish the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems through your research and exploration.

- Publish experimental evidence that differentiates the expected results of the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems from the expected results of Special Relativity.
- Publish theoretical papers supporting the mathematical analysis identifying the mistakes in Einstein’s derivations.
- Conduct experiments that confirm the behaviors of Complete and Incomplete Coordinates Systems.
- Confirm the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems for other wave mediums besides EMF and light.
- Reexamine the theoretical foundations of gravity waves and/or quantum waves using the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems as a foundation.
- Publish experimental evidence defining the existence and speed of gravity waves and/or quantum waves.
