For $d1 \in \mathbb{N}$, $d$dimensional Minkowski space is the Lorentzian manifold whose underlying smooth manifold is the Cartesian space $\mathbb{R}^d$ and whose pseudoRiemannian metric is at each point the Minkowski metric.
This is naturally a spacetime.
The isometry group of Minkowski space is the Poincaré group. The study of Minkowski spacetime with its isometries is also called Lorentzian geometry. This is the context of the theory of special relativity.
Minkowski spacetimes is a stable? solution of the vacuum Einstein equations.
This is due to (ChristodoulouKlainerman 1993).
Named after Hermann Minkowski.
