Relativity and Cosmology


Time for Another Paradox

Authors: S.Baune

We consider the detection of a superluminal signal. We show that there exists a particular inertial frame in which the superluminal signal is not uniquely localizable and that it is detected everywhere at the same instant within the inertial frame. This leads to a novel paradox to which we attribute the relativity of simultaneity. keywords: superluminal, simultaneity, paradox, tachyons, localization.
