Conflicting Relationships in Special Relativity and its Doppler Equations
Conflicts resulting from the shifting assumptions in special relativity (SRT) are discussed in a companion paper. When one of these assumptions -- that of light-use relating length and time -- is held constant, previously unrecognized relationships are seen. One of these is that SRT and Doppler equations are identical when light-use is assumed. A generalized expression for both SRT and Doppler is developed which is comprised of three ratios. Solutions of that expression are tested using existing SRT equations in those ratios. All result in serious conflicts. Since light-use is required within the context of Einstein's Second Principle and optical Doppler and Michelson-Morley tests, SRT appears seriously flawed.
