Remarks on the Transformations of Space and Time
Year: 1997 Pages: 5
Keywords: isotropic inertial system, Lorentz contraction of bodies, Larmor retardation of clocks
Space and time transformations from a "stationary" isotropic inertial system S0 to any other inertial system S are shown to imply complete physical equivalence between the three possible pairs of assumptions chosen among the following: A1. Lorentz contraction of bodies moving with respect to S0; A2. Larmor retardation of clocks moving with respect to S0; A3. Two-way velocity of light equal to c in all inertial systems and in all directions. The empirical evidence supporting A2 and A3 is therefore in favour of A1 as well.
