Painfully basic relativity STD conversion

Postby ralfcis on August 11th, 2017, 12:00 pm 

Apparently no description of the conversion from a Minkowski STD to an Epstein STD can be too basic. I'll try to avoid too much text and too many lines per STD so this thread will be countless pages long.

Here's the Minlowski spacetime diagram (M-STD) for Alice travelling from Earth away from Bob at .8c. The text to painstakingly describe the 5 lines labeled here will appear in the next post.
