Relative simultaneity in the special relativity

Philosophy of Science 44 (3):464-474 (1977)
In this paper a method is proposed for empirically determining simultaneity at a distance within the special theory of relativity. It is argued that this method is independent of Einstein's signalling method and provides a basis for denying the conventionality of distant simultaneity.
