All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident: Arthur Schopenhauer -- In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual: Galileo Galilei -- Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it: Albert Einstein -- When you have eliminated the impossible, what ever remains, however improbable must be the truth: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- We all agree that your theory is crazy, but is it crazy enough? Niels Bohr -- Whenever a true theory appears, it will be its own evidence. Its test is that it will explain all phenomena: Ralph Waldo Emerson -- Since the mathematicians invaded Relativity, I do not understand it myself anymore: Albert Einstein -- I would say that the aether is a medium invented by man for the purpose of propagating his misconceptions from one place to another: W.F.G. Swann: -- Most of the fundamental ideas of science are essentially simple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a language comprehensible to everyone: Albert Einstein -- Physics is mathematical not because we know so much about the physical world, but because we know so little: Bertrand Russell -- If I could explain it to the average person, I would not have been worth the Nobel Prize: R. P. Feynman -- I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use: Galileo Galilei -- How dare we speak of the laws of chance? Is not chance the antithesis of all law?: Bertrand Russell -- Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I´m not sure about the former: Albert Einstein -- The glory of mathematics is that you don't have to say what you are talking about: Richard Feynman -- Anything is possible if you don´t know what you are talking about: Author Unknown -- In life, everything is relative - except Einstein´s theory: Leonid S. Sukhorukov -- Don´\'t worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you´ll have to ram them down people´s throats: Howard Aiken --A day will come undoubtedly when the ether will be discarded as useless: H. Poincaré -- First they tell you you´re wrong and they can prove it; then they tell you you´re right but it isn´t important; then they tell you it´s important but they knew it all along: Charles Kettering -- It is not once nor twice but times without number that the same ideas make their appearance in the world: Aristotle -- The opposite of a true statement is a false statement. The opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth: Niels Bohr -- A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it: Max Planck -- Euclid taught me that without assumptions there is no proof. Therefore, in any argument, examine the assumptions: Eric Temple Bell -- Half this game is ninety percent mental: Yogi Berra

Muon, Special Relativity, Time Dilation


The cosmic ray muon decay in the upper atmosphere is claimed by relativists to be an evidence of the relativistic time dilation. They consider it as a reliable experimental proof of the special relativity. This paper reveals the unviability of this claim, using an analytical approach. The time and space intervals between the events of the muons formation and their arrival to the Earth surface are analyzed by the means of the Lorentz transformation. Contradictory findings are obtained.

What is put in the comment field and looks good in there does obviously not anymore after being posted.
Again in simple text form:

By using the LT you must also consider the transformation of the time coordinates:
Dt'= gam(Dt-Dx.v/c2) ; where D means delta.
In your (i) it gives : Dt'= gam(Dt-Dxu.v/c2) and
in your (ii) it gives : Dt'= gam(Dt-DxE.v/c2)
From this follows that both Dt' are not zero.
This means that your result is not a length observation.
For a proper length observation from K', you need to have Dt'=0, observation at one moment in time.
Like this, using the inverse LT: L= x1u-x1E = gam(x1u'-x1E') + gam.v(t1u'-t1E') and
with t1u'-t1E'= 0 we get L=gam.L' and L'= L/gam.

Note that : Dt= t1u-t1E= gam(t1u'-t1E'+v(x1u'-x1E')/c^2) = gam.v.L'/c^2 is not zero.

J. Zwarts(Netherlands):
By using the LT you must also consider the transformation of the time coordinates:
In your (i) it gives : ∆t′= ????(∆t−∆????????.????/c2) and
in your (ii) it gives : ∆t′= ????(∆t−∆????E.????/c2)
From this follows that ∆???????? = ∆????E and with your input that L=0.
The conclusion is that your analysis is incorrect.
