Relativity and Cosmology


A Graph for Describing Events in TSR

Authors: Per Hokstad

Abstract. We present a graphical approach which illustrates a chain of events within the theory of special relativity (TSR). The graph represents an alternative to the ‘world line’, and presents the standard time & position–parameters. Further, the graph provides the so-called ‘proper time’, which we refer to as ‘internal time’. The object we follow has a velocity being piecewise constant; a condition that can be relaxed. The travelling twin provides an example.
