Minkowski space

In Minkowski space, the three ordinary dimensions of space are combined with a single time dimension to form a four-dimensional variety representing the whole of spacetime.

 


Explanation

Minkowski space, where there is no gravitational field, is the flat spacetime in which the special theory of relativity has been formulated.

The Minkowski diagram was developed in 1908 by the German mathematician Hermann Minkowski.
