Relativistic Images

1. A. In this part we take c = 1 for simplicity. Lets consider the process in the inertial frame of the

mirror. Let the impulse of the incident photon be (px , py ) in this frame (the mirror moves in the x

direction, +y direction points upwards). Then the impulse of the photon reflected from the standing

mirror is (px , py ) as the energy of the photon doesnt change and the angle of incidence is the same

q as the

angle of reflection (this is well-known for standing mirrors). The energy of both photons is W = p2x + p2y .

Now we go back to the rest frame: as the mirror moves with v to x in this frame, the velocity of this

frame is v to the +x direction compared to the mirror frame. We can use the Lorentz transformation on

the energyimpulse four-vector to get the parameters of the incident and the reflected photon in the rest

frame. Due to the Lorentz transformation, the y-components of the incident and the reflected photons

impulse are py ; the energy of the photons can be calculated as:

W px v

;

Wi =

Since the energy and the magnitude of the impulse of a photon is the same (as c = 1), sin =

B. (a) Lets examine the situation from the rest

q frame of the camera. Due to Lorentz contraction,

the distance of the object to the camera is L0 = L 1 vc2 , whilst its height does not change: H 0 = H.

However, the camera shows the image of the object that was in a distance L1 from it: since this point,

the distance covered by the light ct,

of the object is vt: their difference is ct vt = L0 , thus

that can be seen at the place of the camera: the image will be formed as if the

image will be smaller compared to the camera in rest.

(b) The rate of variation is h0 . Were going to calculate this rate in the camera frame:

As the mirror approaches the camera with v, the distance between the camera and

Now we determine the parameters of the virtual image at this point. Since the perpendicularly incoming rays are reflected perpendicularly, the image points will be at the same vertical height as the

respective points of the camera: this causes that the width of the camera and its mirror image is the

same. Now check a light ray that comes from a point of the camera to the mirror covering a distance L2

horizontally and x L2 vertically: if the distance of the image is L3 , the tangent of the angle of incidence

and reflection is tan = Lx2 , tan = Lx3 ; since x is small, tan = and tan = can be used. Using

distance in the camera frame is given by L1 = L 1 vc2 , its differential is dL1 = dL 1 vc2 ; on the

2. A. Were going to determine the apparent angular radius t time after the explosion (we define (t)

this way). In order to do so, lets check a light ray that reaches the observer at an angle measured from

the Earthstar central line. Lets assume it has travelled from the star to the observer; consequently,

it started from the surface of the star star t after the explosion; at this time, the radius of the star

was R0 + v(t ). We can use the law of cosines for the triangle formed by the observer, the centre of

the star and the light source at the vertex of the observer:

(R0 + v(t ))2 = L2 + c2 2 2Lc cos

3

2

The number of real roots of this quadratic equation depends on the sign of its discriminant: if D 0

there is at least one solution for (therefore, at the specific angle there will be light); however, if D < 0,

there will be no corresponding light source: at the boundary of the star, D = 0 will hold:

D = 4(v 2 t + R0 v Lc cos )2 4(c2 v 2 )(L2 (R0 + vt)2 ) = 0

Let and such acute angles that cos = vc and cos = R0L+vt . It is easy to see that cos must be

We should note, that at t0 = 0 this is definitely smaller than arcsin RL0 , the apparent radius of the star before

the explosion: this problem is caused by that during calculations we havent checked whether t > 0, in other

words, whether the star has exploded already. At small values of t0 its possible that we took into account such

extrapolated states of the star in which its radius is smaller than R0 that doesnt happen actually. This problem

can be fixed the most easily this way: the radius of the star is

B. Since the system is rotationally symmetric about the Earthstar central line, the image of the star

must be symmetric, too: this means, that the image will be formed of circular ring(s), the task is to

determine its radius/their radii.

Now we determine when (at which time instant t0 ) will the observer see the blackout at an angle

to the centre of the star. Then the observer will obviously see the star when its radius was Rm . If the

distance that the light had to cover was x then we can write down the law of cosines for the observer

vertex of the triangle observercentre of starlight (or darkness) source:

2

Rm

= L2 + x2 2Lx cos

2

x2 2Lx cos + (L2 Rm

)=0

The smaller root of this equation in x (the larger root corresponds to the other side of the star, the light

from that never reaches the observer) is

x = L cos

2 L2 sin2

Rm

4

The time required by the star to expand to Rm is t1 = RmvR0 , while the time required by the light to

reach the observer is t2 = xc ; the time when the observer sees the blackout is t = t1 + t2 , or in the epoch

t0 introduced before:

The plot of both (t0 ) both (t0 ) for some R0 , Rm and L can be seen in the figure. One can see that the

plot of (t) is tangent to that of (t).

The plot means the following: at t0 5 s the edge of the star starts to expand and the apparent

radius starts to grow. At t0 135 s, there appears a dark spot in the middle of the star (this is the first

sign of the blackout of the star) that starts to grow and at t0 170 s it will become as large as the star

itself: this means, that after this point teh whole star will appear dark. The apparent shape of the star

is a bright circular ring, the apparent radii of which are (t0 ) and (t0 ) that can be determined using the

derived formulae: at some point in time, (t0 ) = (t0 ) will occur: after this point, the star will look like a

dark circle of radius (t0 ).
