This paper shows that this assumption, although widespread and apparently trivial, leads to an anisotropy of the velocity of two light beams traveling in opposite directions along the rim of the disk, which in turn implies some recently pointed out paradoxical consequences undermining the self-consistency of the special theory of relativity SRT. A correct application of the SRT solves the problem and recovers complete internal consistency for the theory. As an immediate consequence, it is shown that the Sagnac effect only depends on the nonhomogeneity of time of the platform and has nothing to do with any anisotropy of the speed of light along the rim of the disk, contrary to an incorrect but widely held idea.

Speed of Light on Rotating Platforms

It has been suggested by Usov that accreting white dwarfs, collapsing to neutron stars may be the sources of the gamma-ray bursts observed at cosmological distances, provided they rotate very fast and have enormously high magnetic fields. The problem with Usov's proposal is reduced by incorporating the relativistic corrections for fast rotating magnetic dipoles Belinsky et al.
