The SR formula for time dilation holds true if SR holds
true; it says that for a fixed location, x, T'=T/(sqrt(cc-vv).

Because his stationary system clocks are synchronized,
the three times in the stationary system clock synchron-
ization are valid times at any fixed location, x,  in
the stationary system, and for any such fixed location,
t'=t/sqrt(cc-vv), whether t=tb-ta or t=tb-ta'. This is
to say, equal intervals in one inertial system are nec-
essarily equal intervals in any other.

As shown earlier in this faq, non-simultaneity is an
artifact of poor usage. The generalized coordinate
form (x-x0), etc, of an equation should be used; if
you do so, there is no time difference in t' at
different locations of x, etc.

Simultaneity is absolute.
