Bertrand Russell
B. Russell, ABC of Relativity Theory 38
Time/Concurrence/RT/Russell: concurrence only has a meaning with respect to an observer. - Each clock measures its own time correctly. - The own time does not provide a measure of bodies moving relative to it. - From the perspective of accelerated electrons their own mass remains equal. - For them, the observer becomes thicker or thinner. - Russell: We must look at the distances between events, not between bodies.
55
Concurrence/Russell: comes into play in relation with congruence.
55f
Time/Place/RT/Russell: There is no same time for different observers. - That’s why we always need to provide the time and place for an event. - Event instead of body: - = observed body.
65
Time/Time dilation/RT/SR/Russell: events ti which the traveler is moving seem to him like things of the past. - The events lying behind him in the future. - For the pbserver standing on the railway line they seem to be in the present.
105
Power/RT/Russell: no longer fundamental concept of dynamics - more like "sunrise". - The same force applied to a heavy body does not cause as much acceleration as a lighter one.
121
"During"/RT/Physics/logical form/Russell: multiplication with time. - ((s) Division: E.g. speed: would not be referred to as "during" - In contrast, "during": E.g. Maintained speed times a time - result: distance traveled -> acceleration. Product sec: here multiplication comes in again. - the dact that a particle follows a geodesic is then the "principle of least effect".
