In current physics there are various equations relating to variation of mass with velocity given by Thomson, Searle, Abraham, Lorentz , Bucherer and Einstein. The magnitudes of transverse and longitudinal masses given by different scientists are different. The common feature in equations is that they involve ‘division by zero’ when v=c, which is mathematically invalid operation. Thomson started it and following scientists continued deriving similar equations i.e. involving ‘division by zero’.
