Der Einfluss der « Lorentz-Kontraktion » der Erde auf den Gang der Quarzuhren

  • L. Courvoisier
Kurze Mitteilungen


The author maintains that a great part of the observed yearly variation in the rate of Quarz-clocks is caused by the «Lorentz-contraction» of the earth and that in this case the yearly curves of the clock-corrections at southern stations must agree with the reflexes of those on northern stations. The fact of this phenomenon is demonstrated by some figures, and the existence of the «Lorentz-contraction» is thus proved.
