Abstract

Transformations of the Lorentz-type are derived in terms of distance and time measurements made by rods and clocks subject to the Fitzgerald-Larmor-Lorentz contractions by their motion through the ether. These transformations contain terms involving the self-measured velocity of a transported setting clock which must be used to establish times at distant points. When the setting clock velocity is small the expressions approximate to the original Lorentz transformations.
