    Spacetime Without Reference Frames: An Application to Synchronizations on a Rotating Disk. [REVIEW]T. Matolcsi - 1998 - Foundations of Physics 28 (11):1685-1701.
    Nonstandard synchronizations of inertial observers in special relativity and synchronizations with respect to a uniformly rotating observer are investigated in a setting which avoids coordinates and transformation rules and so removes some misunderstandings.

    Spacetime Without Reference Frames: An Application to the Velocity Addition Paradox.T. Matolcsi & A. Goher - 2001 - Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part B: Studies in History and Philosophy of Modern Physics 32 (1):83-99.
    Much conceptualisation in contemporary physics is bogged down by unnecessary assumptions concerning a specific choice of coordinates which often leads to misunderstandings and paradoxes. Considering an absolute (coordinate-free) formulation of special relativistic spacetime, we show clearly that the velocity addition paradox emerged because the use of coordinates obscures that the space of relativistic observers is 'more relative' than the space of non-relativistic observers.
