|Title:||Universal time formulation of special relativity|
|Keywords:||Special relativity;Transformation equations;Universal time|
|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.|
