Orthonormal Basis in Minkowski Space

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 132

Description:
In this paper, we considered the definition of orthonormal basis in Minkowski space, the structure of metric tensor relative to orthonormal basis, procedure of orthogonalization. Linear transformation of Minkowski space mapping at least one orthonormal basis into orthonormal basis is called motion. The set of motions of Minkowski space V generates not complete group SO(V) which acts single transitive on the basis manifold.

This is arguably one of the deepest and most beautiful results in modern geometry, and it is surely a must know for any geometer / topologist. It has to do with elliptic partial differential operators on a compact manifold.
