For me physical laws should be observers independent, what should be depend on the observers are measurements. But one of the postulates of Special relativity is that all laws of physics should be the same for all inertial frame.

My is question is , for non inertial observers what are the physical laws that are not the same?

    $\begingroup$ It's probably impossible to provide a complete list, since that depends heavily on which facts in particular you're calling "physical laws". $\endgroup$ – probably_someone May 13 at 9:53

    $\begingroup$ Just as an example, in a rotating frame of reference you get "fictitious" centrifugal and coriolis forces, giving different "physical" laws to a non-rotating frame. $\endgroup$ – m4r35n357 May 13 at 10:52
  • $\begingroup$ As an aside, I would not describe physical law as caring about your frame of reference. The mathematical and conceptual structure we use to work out the consequences of physical law differ, but physics remains what it is. $\endgroup$ – dmckee May 14 at 18:05
