‘Einsteinian, Non-Einsteinian approach to relativity’ seminar at NSU
The Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science of North South University organized a seminar entitled "Einsteinian and Non-Einsteinian Approach of Relativity" on 29th February, 2012 at its own campus located at Bashundhara, Dhaka. Dr. Osman Gani Talukder, Former Professor, Dept. of Applied Physics and Electronics, University of Rajshahi, Rajshahi, Bangladesh and Dr. Mushfiq Ahmad, Former Professor, Department of Physics, University of Rajshahi, Rajshahi, Bangladesh were present as guest speakers while Dr. MD. Abdus Sattar, Acting Vice Chancellor, NSU was in the Chair, Dr. M Abdul Awal, Professor and Chairman, EECS Department, delivered the welcome speech.
The Abstract of the Seminar was divided into two sections. First, the authors discussed the philosophical aspect of the theorem in rather un conventional way. Then they went deeper into the topic in the second part.
According to Einstein's view of relativity, a particle having finite rest mass cannot reach the speed of light because in that case its mass becomes infinite. This dilemma has been resolved in this paper in two ways. They have considered the variation of mass both in Non Einsteinian approach to relativity and in completed form of Einsteinian relativity. They have classified velocity into 2 classes - Galilean and Relativistic.
The Galilean velocity can have any value between 0 and 8; the relativistic velocity follows Lorentz-Einstein (L-E) law of addition and cannot exceed the speed of light c. They have developed the transformation relation between Galilean and Relativistic velocities. Using the relativistic rule for multiplication of velocities, they have demonstrated the velocity in the relativity factor of special relativity is Relativistic.
The students and faculty members enjoyed listening the lectures, and hoped that their breakthrough findings will be appreciated by the global scientific community, leading to some big awards for these 2 Bangladeshi physicists.
