Retardation in rigid motion and degree of rigidity

Itzhak Dana

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Retardation features of rigid motion, in flat two-dimensional space-time, are interpreted in terms of a consistent picture of signals. A similar analysis is adopted to effect a natural transition from rigid to nonrigid frames for which a degree of rigidity, having a simple physical meaning, can be defined.
