What is more cool... to be a member of the Poincare Group or Lorentz Group?

What name would you choose for a school science team and why?

Chose Poincaré: Two to the price of one!

Why is Poincare Group twice or more powerful than Lorentz Group?

The Poincaré group is the semidirect product of the Lorentz group and the translations.

If the Poincare is product of Lorentz.. then is it not Lorentz is more powerful?

The Lorentz group is a subgroup of the Poincaré group.

The Lorentz group is a subgroup of the Poincaré group.

Ok. I'll be a member of the Poincare Group then. Thanks.

Heh, why stop there? If you're a member of the "Diffeomorphism Group", you can be (almost) anything you like. :wink:

the "Diffeomorphism Group"
Or maybe the "Diffeomorphists" or "Diffeomorphers". :cool:

I prefer the Homeomorphists, only to annoy the homophobic out there!
