Reconsideration of SR with Aberration Effect
Short Abstract

to CONTENT page

My motivation of reconsidering SR (Special Relativity) was two: 1) A simple thought experiment shows that the speed of light, coming from an external source, is observed faster, treating light as waves. When difference in energy levels of frames is small, this effect is indistinguishable. As far as this logic is admitted, it contradicts Postulate #2. 2) The expansion of energy-mass relation is mathematically valid only for v/c << 1, which suggests that SR be applicable only as the approximation for v << c, where Lorentz transformation comes in. Postulate #1 is also misleading. Maxwell's equations surely hold in reference to each frame that carries light sources, but just as fields and waves belong to their own sources, it may be said that Maxwell's equations belong to the source frame, and should not be connected with the relative frame speed, with which Maxwell's equations have nothing to do. Aberration angle= arcsin(v/c) in SR vs. arctan(v/c) in my Formula for Aberration Effect will show which view is correct.
