Relativistic Lorentz factor, spacetime continuum, inconsistent infinity, discrete sum of velocities, discrete version of Pythagoras' theorem.
In addition to Lorentz's theory of relativity and Einstein's theory of special relativity, the relativistic Lorentz factor also appears in non-relativistic mechanics as H.E. Ives' theory, in the discrete sum of velocities, and in the conversion between the continuous and discrete versions of Pythagoras' Theorem. It could also be the conversion factor between the current infinitist mechanics based on the (inconsistent) spacetime continuum and a new mechanics based on a finite and discrete space and time, which would explain the experimental success of physical theories based on the inconsistent continuum.
