Re: New Clock Synchronization Gedanken Experiment

I'm sorry for all the male people who can't calculate a basic external product. The problem with Sagnac and other antirelativists was that for too long no one serious had bothered to rebut their claims. Like weeds left to grow in the field. It established their "legacy". Now it's their time: the tru...

Re: New Clock Synchronization Gedanken Experiment

There's no disagreement on the derivation of Sagnac's result. It can be simply done in two ways: using SR or GR formalism (SR is sufficient to explain it). Anyway, if you want to talk about this or more questions about Minimum Description Length and Bayesian inference with regards to optimising mode...

Re: New Clock Synchronization Gedanken Experiment

Paul Langevin and many others provided a simple derivation of „Sagnac effect” from Einstein’s theories. The derivation shows that one can't synchronise the clocks as assumed by Sagnac in his experiment. There will be indeed a time difference between the clocks, equal to the measured one. Explanation...

Re: Stupid question of the day

assume i need to describe something with an equations, for example the number of red apples on a tree I could have RedApples=N where N is the number of red apples. or I could have RedApples=N*M^2/M*M where M is the number of leaves on the tree and N is the number of red apples, in other words secon...

Re: norway

Yesterday I went aurora hunting with an elderly couple I’ve met at the hotel - no luck :-/ (After we came back they brought waffle irons to the hotel lounge and she made waffles. Because her husband loves waffles. No kidding. A Norwegian-Slovenian couple. The whole lounge and the bar smelt with waff...
