The Concept of Simultaneity

Harry E. Mongold
Year: 1978
Keywords: Simultaneity
It has generally been accepted among physicists of this century that simultaneity is relative to the observer, only. There are two concepts used of the word, however, both used in explication of the special theroy of relativity and both stemming from versions of operationalism. In this paper I should like to examine them and demonstrate that neither is tenable in a strict sense.
