Lorentz transformation for motion in the opposite direction

Special relativity is a half-baked theory in which Lorentz transformation only considers the outbound or departing motion where speed and distance change in the same direction. This paper considers the inbound or approaching motion where speed and distance change in the opposite direction. This paper derived a new form of transformation along with the new Lorentz factor, according to which, in addition to well-known time dilation caused by outbound motion, there would be time contraction caused by inbound motion.


La relativité restreinte est une théorie à moitié cuite. La transformation originale de Lorentz ne considère que le mouvement sortant dans lequel la vitesse et la distance changent dans la même direction, tandis que cet article considère le mouvement entrant où la vitesse et la distance changent dans la direction opposée. Cet article a dérivé une nouvelle forme de transformation avec le nouveau facteur de Lorentz, selon lequel, en plus de la dilatation du temps bien connue causée par le mouvement sortant, il y aurait une contraction du temps causée par le mouvement entrant.


Key words: Time Dilation; Time Contraction; Special Relativity; Lorentz Transformation; Lorentz Factor; Approaching Moving Object.
