metadata.rede.dc.description.resumo: Change of clock rates and the deformation of solid bodies following relativistic transformation between inertial reference systems are discussed under the principles of the physical theory of measurements. Both, time dilation and contraction of rods, are interpreted as being the result of measurements done under different unit standards rather than as a consequence of any physical action born in relative motion. The choice of units is not arbitrary but fixed by metric information contained in a light signal observed under the conditions of the transverse Doppler effect.
