原始语种摘要: An expression of the law of causality is proposed, which is shown not to apply to faster-than-light travel (“tachyons”). It is proposed, in view of this, to deal with time in relativistic theories by using proper time measured along a trajectory rather than as an arbitrary foliation of an extended reference frame in space-time. Considerations from the quantum theory of particles also show that Tolman’s paradox does not really arise for the case of single tachyon transmission, as quantum particles have no identities or trajectories and therefore cannot be tracked continuously.
