In accordance with actual internal product areas X of arbitrary (finite or endless) measurement more than or equivalent to two, this e-book comprises proofs of more recent theorems, characterizing isometries and Lorentz alterations less than light hypotheses, like for example limitless dimensional types of well-known theorems of A D Alexandrov on Lorentz transformations.

Example text

Moreover, l (a, b) := z ∈ S\{b} | a ∈ [z, b] ∪ [a, b] ∪ z ∈ S\{a} | b ∈ [a, z] is called a (Menger) line of (S, d). In the euclidean case (X, eucl), the interval [a, b] consists of all x ∈ X with (a − x) + (x − b) = a − b = a − x + x − b . 7) Hence, by Lemma 2, the elements a − x and x − b are linearly dependent. e. x= λ 1 b−a a+ b=a+ . 7) holds true, but not for λ ∈] − 1, 0[ or λ < −1. Hence [a, b] = {a + µ (b − a) | 0 ≤ µ ≤ 1}, and l (a, b) = {a + µ (b − a) | µ ∈ R}. In the case (X, eucl) the Menger lines are thus exactly the previous lines.

C + x x = > . ∈ B (c, ) implies (c − c ) x 1 = x 2 2 − 2 − (c − c )2 for all elements x = 0 of X. If c − c were = 0, the left-hand side of this equation would be 0 for 0 = x ⊥ (c − c ) and = 0 for x = c − c which is impossible, since the right-hand side of the equation does not depend on x. ) Hence c − c = 0, and thus 0= Proposition 9. Let B (c, ), 2 − 2 − (c − c )2 = 2 − 2 . > 0, be a ball of (X, hyp). Then B (c, ) = {x ∈ X | x − a + x − b = 2α} √ with a := ce− , b := ce and α := sinh · 1 + c2 , where et denotes the exponential function exp (t) for t ∈ R.

Proof. If a, b are linearly dependent, then there exists a real λ = 0 with b = λa since a, b are both unequal to 0. Put x0 a2 := αa. e. β = bx0 = λa · x0 = λα, and thus H (a, α) = H (b, β). e. e. e. b − ab a2 ab a a2 2 = b2 − (ab)2 = b (q − x0 ) = 0, a2 a = 0 would hold true. If a = 0 is in X and a2 = 1, then the hyperplanes of (X, hyp) can also be defined by αTt β (a⊥ ) with α, β ∈ O (X) and t ∈ R : take ω ∈ O (X) with a = ω (e) and observe αTt β [ω (e)]⊥ = αTt β ω (e⊥ ) = αTt βω (e⊥ ). Obviously, ω H (a, α) = H ω (a), α for ω ∈ O (X), where H (a, α) is a euclidean hyperplane.
