This mathematically-oriented creation takes the viewpoint that scholars may still familiarize yourself, at an early degree, with the physics of relativistic continua and thermodynamics in the framework of designated relativity. consequently, as well as normal textbook themes corresponding to relativistic kinematics and vacuum electrodynamics, the reader should be completely brought to relativistic continuum and fluid mechanics. Emphasis within the presentation is at the 3+1 splitting procedure, commonly used as a rule relativity for introducing the relative observers viewpoint.

U1 + u2 = 2c0 is a timelike vector; that is, the lightcone C3 is not a vector subspace of M4 . 2. An orthonormal basis cannot contain a null vector, by definition; however, in M4 , there exist bases of null vectors; for example, c0 +c1 , c0 −c1 , c0 +c2 , c0 + c3 are four, linearly independent, null vectors. In fact, the condition α0 (c0 + c1 ) + α1 (c0 − c1 ) + α2 (c0 + c2 ) + α3 (c0 + c3 ) = 0 is equivalent to (α0 + α1 + α2 + α3 )c0 + (α0 − α1 )c1 + α2 c2 + α3 c3 = 0 , or α0 + α1 + α2 + α3 = 0 , α0 − α1 = 0 , α2 = 0 , α3 = 0 , that is αβ = 0 (β = 0, 1, 2, 3) and, hence, they form a basis in M4 .

Here we prefer to assume it from the beginning. e. limitation for the particles trajectories), but restricts only the motion laws. e. where all the physics theories can be developed. In fact, even if the relative point of view is allowed, and it is close to the phenomenological reality as it appears to the observer, the absolute point of view in M4 is primary, either for developing the general procedures or to define the various physical quantities. In classical mechanics, the problem of finding representative spaces for material systems was considered too.

Let us suppose that the events E and F be simultaneous in Sg , occurring at A and B at the time t = 0. Let then A and B be the points of Sg superposed, at t = 0, to the points A and B, and M be the mid-point of A B . e. at t = 0), M (in Sg ) coincides with M (in Sg ); however, repeating the previous experiment, because of the motion of M , the ray emanating from B≡ B will meet M before the one coming from A≡ A . Hence, to the observer M , the switching a light in B will seem to arrive before that the one coming from A: this is the relativity of simultaneity or the fact that two events, simultaneous in one frame, are not simultaneous in another Galilean frame.
