Abstract

In Special Relativity Theory (SRT), equations are written in a form that conserves the value of the space-time interval in the transition from one observer?s system to another. The Lorentz Transformation (LT) is a generally known solution of the space-time interval equation such that the equations of SRT are invariant in relation to this transformation. According to the Four-dimensional Euclidean Reality (FER) model, there is an-other solution of this equation, and this solution allows one to draw some conclusions other than the conclusions obtained on the grounds of the LT. Derivation of the LT according to the FER model is still possible, but the derivation can be performed only at the cost of breaking certain physical laws. Therefore, although the Lorentz Transformation is mathematically correct, it is not correct from the physical point of view.
