Paradoxes in Relativistic Dynamics

  • Yakov P. Terletskii


Relativistically covariant equations of the motion of a mass point are the Minkowski equations, which are the natural generalization of Newton’s equations, the three-dimensional velocities and accelerations being replaced by the corresponding four-dimensional quantities. Such a replacement does not contradict the reliably checked Newtonian mechanics, since at velocities for which the latter is valid, the first three components of the four-dimensional velocity and acceleration do not differ from the components of the three-dimensional velocity and acceleration.
