[0805.1136] Rotation of the swing plane of Foucault's pendulum and Thomas spin precession: Two faces of one coin

Authors: M. I. Krivoruchenko

Date: 8 May 2008

Abstract: Using elementary geometric tools, we derive essentially in the same way expressions for rotation angle of the swing plane of Foucault's pendulum and rotation angle of spin of relativistic particle moving along circular orbit (Thomas precession effect).
