    An empirical, purely spatial criterion for the planes ofF-simultaneity
    with Robert Alan Coleman
    Foundations of Physics 21 (4): 417-437. 1991.
    The claim that distant simultaneity with respect to an inertial observer is conventional arose in the context of a space-and-time rather than a spacetime ontology. Reformulating this problem in terms of a spacetime ontology merely trivializes it. In the context of flat space, flat time, and a linear inertial structure (a purely space-and-time formalism), we prove that the hyperplanes of space for a given inertial observer are determined by a purely spatial criterion that depends for its validity…Read more
