abstract

It is shown that the relativity principles describe properties of the space-time. They state that the space-time geometry is a monistic conception, describing by the unique space-time structure, known as the space-time interval between any two events (space-time points). Classical nonrelativistic conception of the event space contains in addition another structure, describing time interval between any two events (points).
