Problems of synchronization in special relativity and possible links with stochastic electrodynamics

Foundations of Physics 13 (12):1221-1229 (1983)

The Mansouri-Sexl and Sjödin point of view on clock synchronization in special relativity is maintained against various criticisms, taking into account also the recent point of view of stochastic electrodynamics. Light speed invariance is also discussed in an intuitive way
