The Basics of Spacetime Diagrams
I admit that spacetime diagrams are tricky things. It took me a while to get used to them and to be able to read them accurately at first try. I realize that this pseudo-tutorial I'm giving you is less than adequate for someone who has never before seen a spacetime diagram. I apologize for this. As it is, if you are utterly baffled, you can always email me, and I'll try to clear things up for you. That's a standing offer for anything on these pages for as long as these pages are up and running!
I try to explain some things on these pages with the help of my valiant cockatiel, Lupin. He's a bird. That's him on the right.
