First, Lorentz considered a more general form of transformations (with a scale factor), but then he, and also Poincare and Einstein equated it 1 without proper grounds. Their form was artificially narrowed, the formulas became incorrect. This led to a logical contradiction of the theory, to unsolvable paradoxes. For more details, see my brochure “Memoir on the Theory of Relativity and Unified Field Theory” (2000): http://vixra.org/abs/1802.0136

I always wanted to see some heuristic derivation of Lorentz transformation for space and time and eventually you answered my queries. Thanks a lot man!

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 03:01:42 +0000http://thecuriousastronomer.wordpress.com/?p=4516#comment-9285Why is the negative square root of b1 taken as the solution for b1 ?
I am unable to figure out the reason. Would like some help.
Thanks
