This is a video of a presentation delivered at the 18th annual NPA conference which was held in July, 2011, at the University of Maryland. It is presented in four sections.

- Part 1 – Recap of the Spherical Wave Proof analysis and introduction to the Hypercone failure
- Part 2 – Introduction to Modern Classical Mechanics
- Part 3 – Experimental Analysis to show the improved accuracy of Modern Classical Mechanics over Relativity theory.
- Part 4 – Explanation behind why Relativity requires time dilation, length contraction and the twin paradox; and why these concepts are not required by a model that recognizes the importance of Wavelength.

Modern Classical Mechanics is a comprehensive model that supersedes the model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems.

http://www.relativitychallenge.com/media/RelativityChallenge.com-Episode23_iPod.m4v ]]>- Explains why the Spherical Wave Proof is The Essential Proof that established Relativity Theory
- Shows the failure of Einstein’s Spherical Wave Proof as a failure to develop a second sphere
- Identifies the belief that the proof passes as the result of a “False Positive”, or “Type I Error”
- Discusses implications of the failure on terms like Length Contraction, Space-Time Curvature, and Time Dilation

Viewers who have watched Episode 21 will find much of the material familiar.

http://www.relativitychallenge.com/media/RelativityChallenge.com-Episode22.m4v ]]>This Episode reexamines the key characteristics of a Sphere, and uses those characteristics to show why Einstein’s proof actually fails. The following specific points are covered in this video:

- A look at Einstein’s Spherical Wave Proof
- A look at the textual and mathematical requirements of a Sphere
- Review of Einstein’s work to show that his equations do not satisfy the requirements

In addition to the video, a PDF version of the presentation is available for download.

This Episode summarizes and synthesizes a lot of the material we’ve looked at over the past 9 videos. New visitors will find that it serves as a good introduction to the material on the site.

The following specific points are covered in this video:

- A brief history of moving systems equations and SRT
- A look at the mathematical and conceptual mistakes we’re still making today
- Revisiting the improved results to the Michelson-Morley and Ives-Stillwell equations
- Implications on position-based navigation systems

In addition to the video, a PDF version of the presentation is available for download.

Corrections:

- At 15:10 – the arguments to the Tau function invocation in the Key Findings callout should be (x’,0,0,x’/(c-v)). This is corrected in the PDF.
- At 16:20 – the callout should say “…Average of the Approaching and Receding Doppler shifts”
- At 16:55 – I should have said “revising Michelson-Morley” instead of saying “revising Ives-Stillwell”

Update: I’ve added the following two links from the NPA Video Conference I delivered in October 2009. One link is for the video and the other is for the slides. I think this video is essentially the “Director’s cut” of the presentation.

The following specific points are covered in this video

- Explanation of Transformations: Why you need to consider 3 Transformation types, not just 1 as is currently done by the existing models
- Explanation of Wavelength and Frequency and why they are different than counting cycles or measuring length
- Explanation of “what” Newton’s Equations do and where they apply and “what” Lorentz’s Equations do and where they apply
- Explain how the CICS Model differs from Lorentz and Einstein and why it produces quantitatively better mathematical results

In addition to the video, the accompanying PowerPoint presentation is provided in PDF format.

Corrections:

- At 11:03, I say “six hundred thousand” when I should have said “six hundred million”
- At 11:23, I say “300,000,000 meters per second” when I should have said “300,000,000 meters per cycle”
- At 21:47, I say “… they believe they observed something different” when I should have said “… they believe they observed the same thing”

- Identify the assumptions that make up each of the key Moving System Model
- Explanation of why the original Michelson-Morley Experiment does not support Fresnel’s (Aether-based) or Einstein’s (non Aether-based) theory
- Explanation of why the revised Michelson-Morley Analysis supports Fresnel and the Model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems
- Show that the equations associated with the Model of Complete and Incomplete Coordinate Systems produces better predictions than the Special Relativity-based equations for the Ives-Stillwell Atomic Clock experiment

In addition to the video, a presentation and the accompanying Comparison Chart are included in PDF form. Corrections have been made within the video as call-outs.

This video assumes some familiarity with functions, which might be considered an Advanced topic for some viewers/listeners. If you are not familiar with the behavior of functions, I encourage you to first watch Episode 8.

A PDF file containing the slides used in this video is also available for download.

Corrections: When making this video, I made a few mistakes in my choice of words. The corrections are made as callout text boxes in the video. Also, pages 12 and 19 are intentionally left out of the video and accompanying presentation.

Corrections: 1) In the video when I perform the first oscillation, I mention 10 seconds (or 10 on the counter). I should have said 20, which is consistent with the counter and the rest of my discussion. I correctly say 20 later in the video. 2) At about 3:30 into the presentation I mentioned that the “person” is stationary. I intended to say that the “bus” is stationary.

This paper is a revised discussion of a paper, of the same name, that appears in the May 2008 edition of the Galilean Electrodynamics journal. The key finding is that the Michelson-Morley equations were developed in “Absolute” terms, and from that context are accurate. It further finds that the experimental device, called an Interferometer, returns accurate results, but that these actual results are based on relative measurements. This means that the relative-measurement based results when compared with the absolute-measurement based expected results will produce incorrect conclusions when compared to each other. The correction is to create relative-measurement based expected results, which when compared to the relative-measurement based actual results produce correct results. Note that the emphasis on Absolute versus Relative Measurements represents a change in tone over the content given in the original paper. One additional note, in the presentation when the displacement equations are given, they represent changes in length. It is easy to make this a change in time, which is how the equations are written in the paper. A pre-publication version of the paper is available at RelativityChallenge.com. A PDF version of the presentation delivered at the conference is available as a download from this blog entry.

NOTE: I have made two minor corrections to the materials in the 4/14/2008 posting and have reposted the material on 4/15/2008. As a result of technical problems during the process, I have deleted the original 4/14/2008 post and have replaced it with this post on 4/15/2008. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
