Abstract

In this article we analyze some logical contradictions of the special relativity theory (SRT), concerning the time dilation and length contraction. The Lorentz transformations and the relativistic law for velocity addition are considered in detail. The notion of relativity and the transverse Doppler effect are discussed. The whole complex of numerous contradictions proves that the special theory of relativity is the Procrustean bed of physics.

 

Keywords: Time dilation, length contraction, logical contradictions, lorentz transformations, relativistic law for velocity addition, the notion of relativity, transverse doppler effect
