  • Special relativity is one of the monumental achievements of physics of the 20thCentury. Whereas Einstein used a coordinate based approach [1], which ob-scures important geometric aspects of this fundamental theory, many coordinatefree geometric languages have since been developed. In [2], D. Hestenes showedhow the ideas of special relativity can be elegantly expressed in space-time al-gebra. The purpose of this paper is to examine the fundamental ideas of specialrelativity in a complex vector… CONTINUE READING
