On the Mathematics of Special Relativity

Authors: Steve P Smith

It was once said that only three people in the world understood relativity to which Eddington an astronomer/physicist replied “who is the third”. This statement by Einstein was a little forward considering the simplicity of the foundational theory of the paper itself. It may be the case that due to the disingenuous insertion of conditional statements and erroneous assumptions he realized that the paper itself was so erroneous that it may indeed be seen to be incomprehensible to the unguarded reader. It also appears that he was effective in his quest as the number of advocates of Einstein’s special relativity increases daily, who have neither the desire nor inclination to investigate further but rather accept purely on face value Einstein’s assertions. The arduous task of investigation and validation of his theories being left to a small but also increasing number of dedicated independent researchers who refuse to bow to the logical fallacy of appealing to authority.
