Relativity and Cosmology


Relativistic Spirals

Authors: Bruce Rout

A closed form analytic model has been presented and matched to the morphology of spiral galaxies[9]. This model consists of an Archemedean spiral which matches the physical attributes of spiral galaxies as a result of relativistic effects due to great distances on a rotating rigid body. This effect was first posed by Minkowski[5]. We present a derivation of this analytical model though the application of Lortentz transformations.
