Abstract

With regards to the classic MM experiment and an assumed ether wind, this paper merely expresses a postulate?that within a given coordinate system, at a constant velocity, during 360 degrees of rotation, there are compensating anti-symmetrical changes in the number of wavelengths of light within each arm, which prevent the occurrence of any changing interference. However, the same MM experiment will demonstrate the ether wind, if performed at a constant velocity, within two separate coordinate systems, and then the interference patterns compared between these two frames [fringe shift].
