In this paper, a light speed paradox in special relativity is presented. In this paradox, one-way light speed is determined using the Lorentz transformations in two different methods which produce two different answers. This inconsistency is corrected using revised transformations advanced by Selleri.


Dans cet article, un paradoxe de la vitesse de la lumière en relativité restreinte est présenté. Dans ce paradoxe, la vitesse de la lumière à sens unique est déterminée en utilisant les transformations de Lorentz dans deux méthodes différentes qui produisent deux réponses différentes. Cette incohérence est corrigée en utilisant les transformations révisées avancées par Selleri.


Key words: Lorentz Transformations; Special Relativity; One-Way Light Speed Constancy; Selleri’s Paradox; “Equivalent” Transformations.
