Description

The Twin Paradox has raged for more than a century. Relativists have devised a number of resolutions for the paradox. All these reconciliation arguments are accepted by the physics community even though many are mutually contradictory. Presenting the rather obvious flaws in these reconciliation arguments had yielded very few conversions. However, after decades of experience, new techniques have emerged that show great promise and have led to individual successes.

The Twin Paradox: How To Win The Debate� discussed the author's 45 year experience with debating the Twin Paradox and new approaches to that debate. That long and detailed experience with the Twin Paradox yielded some novel conclusions about LAT and the potential for a modified SRT.
