*In different sources Minkowski's nationality is variously given as German, [3] [4] [5] Polish, [6] [7] [8] or Lithuanian-German, [9] or Russian. Minkowski is perhaps best known for his work in relativity , in which he showed in that his former student Albert Einstein 's special theory of relativity could be understood geometrically as a theory of four-dimensional space—time, since known as the " Minkowski spacetime ".*

Throughout the development of mechanics and electromagnetism the role of space and time had been clear and simple. Space and time were simply the arena within which the drama of physics was played out.

The reader who perseveres will have read one of the most influential papers in the history of physics. The accompanying notes and illustrations should, we hope, make this foundational document of special relativity understandable to anyone with high-school level mathematics. Universal intelligibility was a major goal of the early workers in relativity: Einstein famously not only wrote several popular accounts of his ideas, but even used one such popularisation to introduce a version of his unified field-theory. Minkowski's essay given here -- the work for which he is most remembered outside the world of pure mathematics -- was first given orally to an audience composed of scientists but not primarily of physicists. We hope that this republication of it continues the tradition of making important works of natural philosophy accessible to all. Edward H.

by Hermann Minkowski after the publication of Einstein's theory. In Minkowski's words,1 “Henceforth space by itself and time by itself are doomed to fade away.

## Hermann Minkowski

This volume is dedicated to the one hundredth anniversary of the publication of Hermann Minkowski's paper "Space and Time" in His work on the spacetime representation of special relativity had a huge impact on the twentieth century physics to the extent that modern physics would be impossible without the notion of spacetime. While there is consensus on the mathematical significance of spacetime in theoretical physics, for a hundred years there has been no consensus on the nature of spacetime itself. We owe Minkowski a clear answer to the question of the nature of spacetime -- whether it is only a mathematical space or represents a real four-dimensional world. A century after its publication the original Minkowski paper still represents an enrichment to the physicists, especially the relativists, who read it with the intent to fully investigate the depth of Minkowski's ideas on space and time and the physical meaning of special relativity.

Спасибо, - сказал Беккер. - Я сегодня улетаю. Офицер был шокирован. - Вы же только что прибыли.

Могу я для вас что-нибудь сделать. Клушар задумался, польщенный оказанным вниманием. - Если честно… - Он вытянул шею и подвигал головой влево и вправо. - Мне не помешала бы еще одна подушка, если вас это не затруднит.

This note is by no means a comprehensive study of Minkowski's space-time formalism of special relativity. The mathematician, Hermann Minkowski was.

As an alternative to a planar Minkowski space-time of two space dimensions and one time dimension, we replace the unit imaginary , with the Clifford bivector for the plane that also squares to minus one, but which can be included without the addition of an extra dimension, as it is an integral part of the real Cartesian plane with the orthonormal basis and.
