by A. A. Logunov

**Publisher**: arXiv 2005**Number of pages**: 254

**Description**:

The book presents ideas by H. Poincare and H. Minkowski according to those the essence and the main content of the relativity theory are the following: the space and time form a unique four-dimensional continuum supplied by the pseudo-Euclidean geometry. All physical processes take place just in this four-dimensional space.
