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.

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.

Abstract:

Since the time of Galileo, the same definition of velocity has been generally accepted. The definition (usually called Coordinate Velocity) is now shown to be secondary to a more fundamental measure of relative motion (usually called Proper Velocity). The method is that the transformation equations for Special Relativity are derived without introducing velocity or assuming a definition of velocity. For Inertial Frames K and K′, the transformation equations are: x′ = ax – bct, ct′ = act – bx, x = ax′ + bct′, ct = act′ + bx′ , a² = b² + 1; c is the velocity of light; a and b are constants. Four velocity measures are found. Coordinate Velocity, v, = x/ct or − x′/ct′ = b ∕ a = b/√(b² + 1). Proper Velocity, w, = x/ct′ or − x′/ct = b. Thus, v = w/√(w² + 1). The Transformation Equations for Proper Velocity replace b with w. They are x′ = ax – wct, ct′ = act – wx, x = ax′ + wct′, ct = act′ + wx′ , a² = w² + 1. The algebra shows v as a function of w, making w, Proper Velocity, the primary value. At slow velocities, Proper Velocity is an exact fit in the Galilean transformation.

Comments

Lev(Moscow):
SRT is completely erroneous since it is based on the wrong kind of transformations: they have lost the scale factor characterizing the Doppler effect. 
First, Lorentz considered a more general form of transformations (with a scale factor), but then he, and also Poincare and Einstein equated it 1 without proper grounds. Their form was artificially narrowed, the formulas became incorrect. This led to a logical contradiction of the theory, to unsolvable paradoxes. 
Accordingly, GRT is also incorrect.
