So I have seen time dilation written as all three of the following: t=τγ, Δt=Δτγ, dt=dτγ. I'm assuming this not to be the case, but just wanted to clarify that the third (differential) notation does not imply that t=∫τγ? That really wouldn't make sense (to me at least), so I'm assuming that that notation is just a convention and has no mathematical significance over the first equation (t=τγ)?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
