The twin paradoxes of special relativity: Their resolution and implications [Book Review]

Foundations of Physics 19 (5):541-552 (1989)
The resolution of the Langevin paradox for an out-and-return journey gives rise to a result which appears to violate the underlying basis of special relativity. The resolution of this second paradox, due to G. Builder, leads to a physically-intelligible interpretation of Einstein's theory and reconciles it with the cosmologically-based fundamental reference frame revealed by modern astronomy
