**Aether drag hypothesis**— In the 19th century, the theory of the luminiferous aether as the hypothetical medium for the propagation of light, was widely discussed. An important part of this discussion was the question concerning the state of motion of Earth with respect… …54

**History of special relativity**— The History of special relativity consists of many theoretical and empirical results of physicists like Hendrik Lorentz and Henri Poincaré, which culminated in the theory of special relativity proposed by Albert Einstein, and subsequent work of… …55

**Lorentz ether theory**— What is now called Lorentz Ether theory ( LET ) has its roots in Hendrik Lorentz s Theory of electrons , which was the final point in the development of the classical aether theories at the end of the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century …56

**Relativity of simultaneity**— thumb|Event B is simultaneous with A in the green reference frame, but it occurredbefore in the blue frame, and will occur later in the red frame.The relativity of simultaneity is the concept that simultaneity is not absolute, but dependent on… …57

**Fringe shift**— Yellow areas produce bright lines of constructive interference. The dark areas produce dark lines of destructive interference. ] A fringe shift is most often referred to in interferometry experiments such as the Michelson Morley. It is the… …58

**Relativity priority dispute**— Albert Einstein presented the theories of Special Relativity and General Relativity in groundbreaking publications that either contained no formal references to previous literature, or referred only to a small number of his predecessors for… …59

**History of Lorentz transformations**— The Lorentz transformations relate the space time coordinates, (which specify the position x , y , z and time t of an event) relative to a particular inertial frame of reference (the rest system ), and the coordinates of the same event relative… …60

**Theoretical physics**— employs mathematical models and abstractions of physics in an attempt to explain experimental data taken of the natural world. Its central core is mathematical physics 1, though other conceptual techniques are also used. The goal is to… …
