Book with Minkowski’s four works, which laid the foundations of spacetime physics
Hermann Minkowski, Spacetime: Minkowski’s Papers on Spacetime Physics (Minkowski Institute Press, Montreal 2020), 213 pages. The four works are (listed chronologically as they had been presented):
1. The Relativity Principle – lecture given at the meeting of the Goettingen Mathematical Society on November 5, 1907.
2. The Fundamental Equations for Electromagnetic Processes in Moving Bodies – lecture given at the meeting of the Goettingen Scientific Society on December 21, 1907.
3. Space and Time – lecture given at the 80th Meeting of Natural Scientists in Cologne on September 21, 1908.
4. A Derivation of the Fundamental Equations for the Electromagnetic Processes in Moving Bodies from the Standpoint of the Theory of Electrons; this work contains Minkowski’s notes that were assembled together by Minkowski’s student Max Born and published in 1910 (a year after Minkowski’s death).
