Also the period of the modulation based on a fixed absolute motion vector in the Miller direction would not be 12 sidereal hours but 24 as can be plainly seen from the geometry.
The TV also offers absolute motion clarity via a refresh rate that is significantly faster than that of a typical LED TV.
Another first-rate factor in LG's advanced OLED technology is its Absolute Motion Clarity.
Frequently used models are the absolute motion and the relative motion models.
The sound mathematical principles of absolute motion of continua, like those previously introduced (Hamel, 1956; Iacob 1959; Onicescu, 1972; Liggett, 1994) are a proper basis for an extension to relative motion in large spaces.
This luminiferous ether was thought to be in a state of absolute rest, and the Earth was thought to be moving at some particular speed relative to it, called Earth's absolute motion.
Due to their unique ability to sense only rotation on their sense axis, they provide the most accurate and absolute motion related information.
Defined in these terms, length contraction and time dilation constitute real processes of dynamic origin, connected with the impact of absolute motion on molecular forces.
Let us suppose for example, that the absolute motion of the platform is a 3-D rotation around the fixed point O, defined by the Euler angles
His famous argument at the end of the Scholium concerning the rotating bucket is usually interpreted as an attempt to provide a criterion (at least for the case of circular motion) for absolute motion or rest.
That is, perhaps Newton and Leibniz agreed on the physically objective status of simultaneity and instantaneous Euclidean geometry--enough structure to define relative motion--but absolute space adds something to that structure that allows us to describe absolute motion, and one could claim that adding that structure is tantamount to changing the ontological status of space.
