Phys.,35, 83 (1967), have considered the transformations of physical quantities in the asynchronous formulation, as in contrast to the usual synchronous formulation. That is why these papers gave rise to some criticism (see, for example, T. W. Kibble:Nuovo Cimento B,41, 72, 84 (1966); R. Penney:Nuovo Cimento A,43, 911 (1966); A. Staruskievicz:Nuovo Cimento A,45, 684 (1966); L. De Broglie:C. R. Acad. Sct., Ser. B,264,1173 (1967);265, 589 (1967)). The general treatment of the asynchronous formulation has been given in subsect. 2’2 of ref. (1), including the equations of motion for a perfect fluid. The asynchronous statics has been further developed by S. Aranoff:Nuovo Cimento B,10, 155 (1972); Ø. GrØn:Nuovo Cimento B,17, 141 (1973); S. Pahor and J. Strand:Nuovo Cimento B,20, 105 (1974); G. Cavalleri, G. Spavieri and G. Spinelli:Nuovo Cimento B,25, 348 (1975). An application of the asynchronous dynamics to an accelerated rod can be found inG. Cavalleri andG.

Phys.,38, 360 (1970) treats the right-angled lever by true, covariant transformation of lengths (see Ø. GrØn, 1975).ADSCrossRefGoogle Scholar
