Logical verification of Einstein’s “light clock” thought experiment

Numerous paradoxes have been noted with regard to Einstein’s special theory of relativity (STR) [A. Einstein, Ann. Phys. 322, 891 (1905)]. This is because the logical consistency of the two guiding principles he adopts has not been fully verified. Here, the author discusses Einstein’s “light clock” thought experiment based on the two guiding principles of STR. Following those principles would lead to a logical breakdown in the STR.


De nombreux paradoxes ont été remarqués en ce qui concerne la théorie de la relativité restreinte d’Einstein (STR) [A. Einstein, Ann. Phys. 322, 891 (1905)]. C’est parce que la cohérence logique des deux principes fondamentaux qu’il adopte n’a pas été entièrement vérifiée. L’auteur discute ici de la réflexion sur l’horloge de lumière d’Einstein qui se base sur les deux principes fondamentaux de la STR. Suivre ces principes mènerait à un effondrement logique dans la STR.


Key words: Special Relativity; Light Clock Thought Experiment.
