Title: Note on Special Relativistic Calculations with Identical Laboratory and Rocket Frame Computers
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: Dynamical relativistic problems invariably require the solution of nonlinear differential equations. These equations are rarely solvable in closed form and are now being solved numerically on modern digital computers. In this paper, a numerical method is developed which has the special property that computations on identical computers in both the laboratory and rocket frames yield numerical results which continue to be related by the Lorentz transformation.
