Some Remarks on the Space-Time of Newton and Einstein

Graham Stanley Hall

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This paper presents an informal discussion of the space and time of classical Newtonian theory and of the space-time of Einstein’s special relativity theory, together with a comparison of them. The essential reason for the (1+3)- dimensionality of classical theory and the 4D of special relativity is described.
