somebody know about this terms: "timelike, spacelike or lightlike"(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

they often are used in relativistic electrodynamic

i.e when I´m referring to the lightcone in a spacetime diagram.

I would like some physics-interpretation of this concepts.

thanks.
