Spacetime in Zero Gravity
Lecture no. 15 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity
Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
In an influential interpretation of relativity, Einstein’s former mathematics professor Hermann Minkowski reformulated the theory in terms of four-dimensional geometry, which he called spacetime. Learn how to plot events in this coordinate system in cases where gravity is zero.
