The Anisotropy of Light Velocity

Stefan Marinov
Year: 1987
Keywords: Anisotropy,Light Velocity

It is shown that the claim of Byl et al to having experimentally demonstrated the isotropy of the velocity of light in agreement with "special relativity" is not warranted. Their arrangement simply allows two anisotropic effects to cancel each other out. A general discussion concerning the first order in V/c effects in the propagation of light is presented. The difficulty in communicating space-time physics through scientific journals is also discussed.
