Special Relativity, Relativistic Doppler shift, Time Dilation
The period of a light wave emitted by an oscillating electron in a “stationary” reference frame was determined in a relatively moving frame using the Lorentz transformation applied on different event intervals; one being between two events on the wave propagation path, and the other between two co-local events on the oscillating source path. A critical inconsistency in the Special Relativity was revealed.
The LT is a coordinate transformation. You cannot apply the LT to a period or a wavelength. Try what you wanted to show with the Galilean transformation first, and you will see what I mean.
