Periodic lattices in Minkowski space

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


We describe a set of periodic lattices in (1+1)-dimensional Minkowski space, where each lattice has an associated symmetry group consisting of inhomogeneous Lorentz transformations that map the lattice onto itself. Our results show how ideas of crystal structure in Euclidean space generalize to Minkowski space and provide an example that illustrates basic concepts of spacetime symmetry.
