Time on a Rotating Platform
Year: 1997 Pages: 12
Keywords: Relativity (special and general), Synchronisation, Sagnac effect
Traditional clock synchronisation on a rotating platform is shown to be incompatible with the experimentally established transformation of time. The latter transformation leads directly to solve this problem through noninvariant one-way speed of light. The conventionality of some features of relativity theory allows full compatibility with existing experimental evidence.
