Space/ Time Curvature Structure. By Hank Curci MS Math Stanford


 

Albert Einstein around 1905, the year his “Annus Mirabilis papers” were published. These included Zur Elektrodynamik bewegter Körper, the paper founding special relativity.

In physics, the special theory of relativity, or special relativity for short, is a scientific theory regarding the relationship between space and time. In Albert Einstein‘s original treatment, the theory is based on two postulates:[p 1][1][2]

  1. The laws of physics are invariant (that is, identical) in all inertial frames of reference (that is, frames of reference with no acceleration).
  2. The speed of light in vacuum is the same for all observers, regardless of the motion of the light source or observer.
