Minkowski space is 4-dimensional Euclidean space (i.e., the set of points (x,y,z,t)) together with the metric:

c2dt2dx2dy2dz2

A vector v in Minkowski space is said to be time-like if | | v | | 2 > 0, light-like if | | v | | 2 = 0 and space-like if | | v | | 2 < 0. The isometries of Minkowski space are the Lorentz transformations.
