In the frame of photon does time stop in the meaning that past future and present all happen together? If we have something with multiple outcomes which is realized viewed from such frame? Are all happening together or just one is possible? How the communication between two such frame s work meaning is there time delay for the information as c is limited? If there is time delay does it mean that time does not stop?

You are asking about how a photon experiences the passage of time? There is no right time. Photons are not ordinary things moving through space. So from the point of view of the photon this time is not moving at all but the point of view of the photon is that it's place in space is changing but no time is passing. Change - ie. motion - in time and space actually happens in four dimensions in which no point in time or place in space can be preferred. We could create any ( or many) agreeable coordinate system in such space with four indices - they can be anything at all but with them change of any of the four indices for position and time can be described by the difference in these arbitrary agreed numbers. But this "Minkowski space" and the equations that relate motions in space and time allows the one special thing. That one "thing" is that light moves at same speed always, fastest possible. So light photons were they able to experience, could only experience change of space. They cannot experience time having changed position in space in the least possible time.

I am asked to show that the matrix
S = 1 i 4 σ μ ν ε μ ν
represents the infinitesimal Lorentz transformation
Λ μ ν = δ μ ν + ε μ ν ,
in the sense that
S 1 γ μ S = Λ μ ν γ ν .
I have already proven that S 1 = γ 0 S γ 0 , so I can begin with the left-hand side of this third equation:
S 1 γ μ S = γ 0 S γ 0 γ μ S = γ 0 ( 1 + i 4 σ μ ν ε μ ν ) γ 0 γ μ ( 1 i 4 σ μ ν ε μ ν ) = γ 0 γ 0 γ μ γ 0 γ 0 γ μ i 4 σ μ ν ε μ ν + γ 0 i 4 σ μ ν ε μ ν γ 0 γ μ γ 0 i 4 σ ρ τ ε ρ τ γ 0 γ μ i 4 σ μ ν ε μ ν = γ μ + 1 16 γ 0 σ ρ τ ε ρ τ γ 0 γ μ σ μ ν ε μ ν = γ μ + 1 16 ( σ ρ τ ε ρ τ σ μ ν ε μ ν ) γ μ .
Remember, we want this to be equal to
Λ μ ν γ ν = ( δ μ ν + ε μ ν ) γ ν = γ μ + ε μ ν γ ν .
The first term is there already, but I have no idea how that second term is going to work out to ε μ ν γ ν . Can anyone give me a hint, or tell me what I’ve done wrong?

"If the frame of reference is translated or rotated, the vector doesn't change."
Although the length of the vector won't change, the angle that this vector makes with the positive direction of the newly defined x-axis changes, no? Hence, how is it possible to state that the vector doesn't change? Have I misunderstood the basic definition of a vector?

If an observer were to rotate around a point at near light speeds, what sort of length contraction would he observe the universe undergo?

If the velocity is a relative quantity, will it make inconsistent equations when applying it to the conservation of energy equations?
For example:
In the train moving at V relative to ground, there is an object moving at v relative to the frame in the same direction the frame moves. Observer on the ground calculates the object kinetic energy as 1 2 m ( v + V ) 2 . However, another observer on the frame calculates the energy as 1 2 m v 2 .

A puck is placed on a friction less disk that is rotating with angular velocity ω . What is the equation of motion with respect to the rotating frame of the puck?
The contradiction that I can not resolve is that it seems really obvious that the puck will rotate with angular velocity ω in the frame of the disk. But if look at the puck from the frame of reference of the disk, we can see that there is a pseudo centrifugal force acting on the puck. This is the only force that acts on the puck in this frame.
Hence, the puck should accelerate radially outward in this frame...
