Abstract

The notion of the coordinate time is introduced. The interrelation between constancy of c and synchronization is analyzed. Lorentz-transformations are derived and using them the relativistic effects are reconsidered. The causality paradox is discussed and the twin paradox is described from the point of view of both siblings.
