    This book provides an original introduction to the geometry of Minkowski space-time. A hundred years after the space-time formulation of special relativity by Hermann Minkowski, it is shown that the kinematical consequences of special relativity are merely a manifestation of space-time geometry. springer, This book offers a presentation of the special theory of relativity that is mathematically rigorous and yet spells out in considerable detail the physical significance of the mathematics. It treats, in addition to the usual menu of topics one is accustomed to finding in introductions to special relativity, a wide variety of results of more contemporary origin.

    results on hyperbolic geometry started to occur frequently. In , H. Minkowski reformulated the famous A. Einstein’s paper from and introduced space-time. Pavel Chalmovianský (KAGDM FMFI UK) Geometry of Minkowski Space Bratislava, 3 / physics concept of spacetime was introduced by Einstein. This is both unfortunate and unfair. It was Hermann Minkowski (Einstein's mathematics professor) who announced the new four-dimensional (spacetime) view of the world in , which he deduced from experimental physics by decoding the profound message hidden in the failed experiments.

In mathematical physics, Minkowski space (or Minkowski spacetime) is a combination of three-dimensional Euclidean space and time into a four-dimensional manifold where the spacetime interval between any two events is independent of the inertial frame of reference in which they are recorded.

A hundred years after the space-time formulation of special relativity by Hermann Minkowski, it is shown that the kinematical consequences of special relativity are merely a manifestation of space-time by: In physics, spacetime is any mathematical model which fuses the three dimensions of space and the one dimension of time into a single four-dimensional manifold.

Spacetime diagrams can be used to visualize relativistic effects, such as why different observers perceive where and when events occur differently. Until the 20th century, it was assumed that the three-dimensional geometry of the.
