Extinction Shift Principle© : The Details

What is an Extinction Shift?

As apposed to any Doppler shift, a re-emission at the point of interference of a not-yet-interfered-with primary wave takes place as graphically depicted above in the symbol for the Extinction Shift, whereby, from left to right, a longer primary wavelength with velocity c+v relative to the point of interference is extinguished at the point of interference, immediately re-emitting a new secondary wave at the relative frequency of the primary wave in the frame of reference of the interference.  The new secondary wave has a shorter secondary wavelength with velocity c relative to the point of interference. The primary and secondary waves have exactly the same frequency in the frame of reference of the interference, i.e., the velocity-to-wavelength ratio of the primary wave equals the velocity-to-wavelength ratio of the secondary wave. The point that has been missed in previous emission theories is that the ordinary real world observer can measure neither the velocity nor the wavelength of a primary wave.  The measuring instrument can only discern the frequency of interference as perceived in the frame of reference of the interference.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE ON EMISSION THEORIES

 It is important for the newcomer to know that most all references pertaining to Emission Theories, both on-line and in print, are regrettably completely out of date and are mostly edited by those who are unfamiliar with the profound fundamentals of emission theories; i.e., the correct application of Galilean transformations of velocities in Euclidean Space Geometry.  As opposed to the Emission Theory of Walter Ritz's, the Extinction Shift Principle presented here is the correct treatment of the undisturbed nature of the measurement of a wave or a photon. It is straight forwardly seen that neither the velocity nor the wavelength of a primary undisturbed wave packet or a photon can be directly measured. A measurement of the velocity of a wave packet requires at least two positions, X1 and X2, and their corresponding instances in time, T1 and T2. Any measurement by physical means will introduce interference, extinguishing the undisturbed primary wave, replacing it with a re-emitted extinction shifted secondary wave, thus denying the physical observer all observations of the undisturbed nature of the primary wave.  The book, Discourses & Mathematical Illustrations pertaining to the Extinction Shift Principle under Electrodynamics of Galilean Transformations presents the Principal Axioms of the Extinction Shift Principle applied to both gravitation and electromagnetism under electrodynamics of Galilean transformations of velocities.

As a consequence of the mathematical illustrations presented in this book, it is thereby demonstrated that any wavelength of a primary wave cannot be Doppler Shifted, but rather re-emitted as an extinction shifted secondary wave, requiring absolutely no relativistic corrections whatsoever. And there is no direct observation or measurement on the primary wave.

Thus, any primary wave along with its previously undisturbed wavelength is extinguished upon interference and replaced with a new secondary wave with a shifted , i.e., extinction shifted wavelength, moving with velocity  in the frame of reference of the interference.

Unlike earlier emission theories, the principal axioms of the Extinction Shift Principle makes a clear distinction between the measurable and the calculable.

Glossary of Terms

The following graphical illustration is that of a fixed interference, namely, that of a fixed window.  The fixed window becomes the secondary source, at the point of interference, thereby re-emitting the previously undisturbed primary wave originating from a moving primary source that is approaching with velocity v from the left of the illustration.  The undisturbed primary wave  is replaced with a new extinction shifted secondary wave as follows:
