One advantage in using light signals to synchronize clocks, is that the procedure is easy to analyze from any frame. But you don't have to use light to synchronize clocks--you can use any kind of signal, even sound if you wanted (and could arrange it). But then the analysis from different frames is complicated by the fact that speed of the signal is frame--and direction--dependent (and must be computed using the relativistic addition of velocities formula).quantumphilosopher said:That is, why did he use signals whose speed is invariant?
