... to go from one event to the other. In principle, the time of the space voyage read off in an astronaut’s clock would be different from his colleague’s on the ground simply because they take different paths between the two events, the start and the end of the voyage.

In mathematical physics, Minkowski space or Minkowski spacetime is a combination of Euclidean space and time into a four-dimensional manifold where the spacetime interval between any two events is independent of the inertial frame of reference in which they are recorded. Although initially developed by mathematician Hermann Minkowski for Maxwell's equations of electromagnetism, the mathematical structure of Minkowski spacetime was shown to be an immediate consequence of the postulates of special relativity.Minkowski space is closely associated with Einstein's theory of special relativity, and is the most common mathematical structure on which special relativity is formulated. While the individual components in Euclidean space and time will often differ due to length contraction and time dilation, in Minkowski spacetime, all frames of reference will agree on the total distance in spacetime between events. Because it treats time differently than the three spacial dimensions, Minkowski space differs from four-dimensional Euclidean space.The isometry group, preserving Euclidean distances of a Euclidean space equipped with the regular inner product is the Euclidean group. The analogous isometry group for Minkowski apace, preserving intervals of spacetime equipped with the associated non-positive definite bilinear form (here called the Minkowski inner product,) is the Poincaré group. The Minkowski inner product is defined as to yield the spacetime interval between two events when given their coordinate difference vector as argument.
