A one-dimensional Minkowski diagram (rest frame) with sketched equilocal events for the rest frame. The equilocal events are always parallel to the time axis of the rest frame:

  • \(\class{blue}{E_1}\), \(\class{blue}{E_2}\) und \(\class{blue}{E_3}\) happen at the location \( \class{blue}{x_1} \) in the rest frame.
  • \(\class{red}{E_0}\) and \(\class{red}{E_4}\) happen at a different location \( \class{red}{x_2} \) in the rest frame.
