Special Relativity 8  Applications of Minkowskian Geometry Speaker(s): Richard Epp
Abstract: Learning to use Minkowskian geometry to understand, very simply, a variety of aspects of Einstein’s spacetime.
Learning Outcomes: • How a straight line is the longest path between two points in spacetime. • How a light particle experiences space and time: its journey from one location in the universe to another involves zero spacetime distance, and is thus instantaneous! • How Einstein’s special relativity has no difficulty handling accelerated observers.
