Contributions to the Relativistic Generalization of the Kinetic Theory of Gases and Statistical Mechanics
The concept of the space-time world represents the geometrization of the space and time relations of the physical system considered. While in the framework of the special theory of relativity only the kinematic aspects of the space and time relations are characterized and the space-time continuum as an underlying geometrical background of physical events has been considered, in Einstein’s theory of gravitation the space-time continuum has significantly other meaning, namely, its geometrical structure is determined by the gravitational interactions, therefore, the space-time continuum also represents a geometrization of the gravitational field.
