As part of the effort to develop theories of spacetime separate from the theories of special and general relativity, Schr|ter characterizes Minkowski spacetime by some axioms as simply as possible, then deduces all its other properties from these axioms.

What follows compares the Compton-(de Broglie) relations derived in the PV theory with the Synge ray-wave diagram in spacetime, and concludes that his de Broglie waves propagate within the vacuum state rather than free space.
Einstein expressed these ideas of energy-mass as an integral part of warped spacetime.
According to Albert Einstein's General Theory of Relativity (1915), gravity causes spacetime to curve under the influence of mass--the more mass contained within a particular region of space, the greater the curvature will be at the boundary of that particular region.
This acts as a "wormhole" - a doorway or tunnel through the fabric of spacetime of the kind seen in countless sci-fi stories.
In doing this, I revisit some of Einstein's main theoretical ideas about spacetime and relate them to Rogers' conceptual system, ontological and epistemic issues, and to future inquiry in nursing science.
Gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of spacetime, can be detected with a space-based observatory, researchers say.
When objects move, the curvature of spacetime changes and these changes move outwards (like ripples on a pond).
The news from the US last Thursday confirmed gravity waves - ripples in spacetime - had been detected by scientists a century after Albert Einstein predicted their existence.
GRAVITY waves - ripples in spacetime - have been detected by scientists a century after Albert Einstein predicted their existence and all with the help of Cardiff University researchers.

Einstein's "field equations" showed how gravity behaves in response to matter in spacetime.
Wild expansion would make all matter unravel at the atomic level as spacetime itself disappears.
