a four-dimensional space in which three coordinates specify the position of a point in space and the fourth represents the time at which an event occurred at that point
A four-dimensional space-time with no curvature, assumed in the theory of Special Relativity. The curved space-time of General Relativity appears to be a Minkowski space-time at any given point near an observer, much as the Earth appears basically flat in the vicinity of someone standing on a plain. Minkowski space-time is named for Russian-born German mathematician Hermann Minkowski (1864-1909).
noun, Mathematics. 1. a four-dimensional space in which the fourth coordinate is time and in which a single event is represented as a point.
