Abstract and Figures

We propose a model of time-dilation that follows from the application of concepts from information theory and computer theory to physical systems. Our model predicts equations for time-dilation that are identical in form to those predicted by the special theory of relativity. In short, our model can be viewed as an alternative set of postulates rooted in information theory and computer theory that imply that time-dilation will occur. We also show that our model is consistent with the general theory of relativity's predictions for time-dilation due to gravity.
