We find a simillar situation in the case of the formula which accounts for the mass dilation (Bucherer's experiment).

With that experimental data, together with the law of inertia and the uniformity of clock rates on any single world line, one can deduce Lorentz invariance, and all other consequences of relativity.

Thanks. Please be more specific concerning the law of inertia. What does it introduce in the derivation?With that experimental data, together with the law of inertia and the uniformity of clock rates on any single world line, one can deduce Lorentz invariance, and all other consequences of relativity.

[tex] \tau_1 ' = \sqrt{\frac{1+v}{1-v}} \tau_1 [/tex]

[tex] \tau_2 ' = \sqrt{\frac{1-v}{1+v}} \tau_2 [/tex]

Thus we get lorentz invariance: [tex] \tau_1 \tau_2 = \tau_1 ' \tau_2 ' [/tex].
