Daniel Heyman '03 tests new postulate for Special Relativity
Daniel Heyman, '03, Works to Correct Einstein’s Errors
Daniel Heyman ’03 is working with Assistant Professor of Physics Seth Major on Einstein’s theory of Special Relativity. New discoveries have had physicists believing that an aspect of Einstein’s famous theory must be flawed, and Heyman has begun a quest to discover if adding a third postulate to the theory might be the solution. Major believes that including a third condition to the existing two will correct the inconsistencies physicists have been finding in Einstein’s theory and are thus unable to sort out. Heyman, a physics and math major at Hamilton, approached Major about the possibility of working on theoretical physics research and has enjoyed the experience immensely. Having learned a lot of physics and encountered math he had never previously experienced, Heyman hopes to continue his research for his senior thesis. More ...
