Title: Universal time formulation of special relativity
Authors: Vachaspati
Keywords: Special relativity
Transformation equations
Universal time
Issue Date: Jan-2004
Publisher: CSIR
Abstract: Special Relativity is formulated with time, instead of the speed of light, treated as invariant under inertial coordinate transformations. Velocity of light in space is shown to be isotropic and the observed longer lifetimes of unstable particles in flight are explained. The slowing down of cesium clocks carried by Hafele and Keating in circumnavigating the earth, is discussed. An observational test to find out whether or not nature operates according to the universal time, is outlined.
