A New Space‐Time Transformation
c/o Z. Du, 3500 Sutherland Ave. J204, Knoxville, Tennessee 37919 U.S.A.
The transformation of relativistic space‐time between two coordinate systems, one of which is rotating with respect to another at a constant angular velocity, is established in this paper. From the transformation, we deduce a series of transformations between the two coordinate systems: the transformation of velocity, the transformation of acceleration, the transformation of momentum and energy, and the transformation of force. And from several formulas for these transformations, we deduce a new formula for the Doppler effect and the gravitational field of a spinning body. At the same time some fundamental concepts of relativity are discussed.
Keywords: transformation of space‐time, transformation of momentum and energy, gravitational field of a spinning body
