Relativity
  Minkowski, Hermann
  In physics and mathematics, Minkowski space (or Minkowski spacetime) is the mathematical setting in which Einstein's theory of special relativity is most conveniently formulated
  The idea of Minkowski space also led to special relativity being viewed in a more geometrical way, this geometric viewpoint of spacetime being important in general relativity too
  While spacetime can be viewed as a consequence of Albert Einstein's 1905 theory of special relativity, it is first explicitly proposed mathematically by one of his teachers, the mathematician Hermann Minkowski
1908
Relativity
