Circular relativistic motion of two identical bodies

  • 14 Accesses


The circular relativistic motion of two bodies is discussed as the solution of previously obtained equations with a deviating argument in which the deviation of the argument itself is an unknown function of the time. In the case of circular motion the deviation of the argument does not depend on the time and is a root of a transcendental equation derived in the article.
