Mathematical structures and spaces

The applets are started by clicking the red buttons.

The applet Lorentz transformation illustrates elementary facts of special theory of relativity. It allows the discussion of major relativistic effects such as relativity of simultaneity, time dilatation and length contraction. Space-time may be considered as a "mathematical space" endowed with a certain "geometry" (it is called "Minkowski space"). Furthermore, an approach towards the notion of an "invariant" is provided. The applet is also suitable for being used in physics education.
It is started from the red button in its own window.
