INTRODUCTION TO THE TREATISE

The Relativity of Light is a treatise (sometimes in script form for purposes of readability) which describes, explains, analyses, scrutinizes, and falsifies Albert Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, and its related theories, concepts and so-called confirmations.

The Relativity of Light has been a 'work in process' since 2002, but it is now almost completed. The treatises now published on this website are substantially complete and are currently ready for reading and scrutiny in the order shown. The treatises 'under construction' are currently in draft form and should be published on this website before 2012.

The author welcomes any constructive comments, criticisms and suggestions. They should be emailed to: Info@RelativityofLight.com
