Title: A New Interpretation Of The Special Theory Of Relativity
Author: Buonomano V.
Abstract: Assuming the "Big Bang" theory as well as the usual axioms in the Special Theory of Relativity, the time dilations and length contractions are treated as real physical effects. This becomes possible by relating everything to the hypothetical frame, Sa, at rest relative to the "Big Bang" event. This frame in many senses plays the role of the classical aether frame. A clock's real ryhthm, as opposed to its rhythm observed by restricted methods, is then a function of its velocity relative to Sa (assuming a uniform gravitational field). It is further assumed that gravitational radiation is composed of "electromagnetic-like" waves. Therefore when a clock changes its velocity in a uniform gravitational field it must receive a different total energy due to the average frequency shift (Doppler effect), the time dilations are then caused by the change in energy due to this frequency shift. That is, not wo clocks can be in the "same" gravitational field unless they have no relative velocity, and therefore the Special Theory of Relativity is a special case of the General Theory from this viewpoint. Two feasible experimental tests, using the Mössbauer effect, are described that would decide on these viewpoints. The principle of equivalence and the "twin paradox" are also discussed. © 1975 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
