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?

fresh_42 said:The Poincaré group is the semidirect product of the Lorentz group and the translations.
The Lorentz group is a subgroup of the Poincaré group.Rainbows_ said:If the Poincare is product of Lorentz.. then is it not Lorentz is more powerful?

Or maybe the "Diffeomorphists" or "Diffeomorphers".strangerep said:the "Diffeomorphism Group"
I prefer the Homeomorphists, only to annoy the homophobic out there!jtbell said:Or maybe the "Diffeomorphists" or "Diffeomorphers".
The Poincare or Lorentz Group is a mathematical group that describes the symmetries of Minkowski spacetime, the mathematical framework used in special relativity.
The elements of the Poincare or Lorentz Group include rotations, boosts, and translations in space and time.
The Poincare or Lorentz Group is the group of transformations that leave the laws of physics unchanged in special relativity. This means that the laws of physics are invariant under these transformations.
The Poincare or Lorentz Group plays a crucial role in understanding the symmetry of physical laws in special relativity. It is also important in quantum field theory and in the study of elementary particles.
The Poincare or Lorentz Group is a more general group than the Galilean Group, which only includes transformations of space and time. The Poincare or Lorentz Group includes transformations that involve both space and time, and also includes the effects of Lorentz transformations on mass and energy.
