An introduction to Minkowski geometries. (English)
Int. J. Math. Educ. Sci. Technol. 47, No. 5, 772-790 (2016).
Summary: The fundamental ideas of Minkowski geometries are presented. Learning about Minkowski geometries can sharpen our students’ understanding of concepts such as distance measurement. Many of its ideas are important and accessible to undergraduate students. Following a brief overview, distance and orthogonality in Minkowski geometries are thoroughly discussed and many illustrative examples and applications are supplied. Suggestions for further study of these geometries are given. Indeed, Minkowski geometries are an excellent source of topics for undergraduate research and independent study.
