In my book it says that the Lorentz group O(3,1) includes 'discrete reversals of the time direction'.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What on earth does this mean?

So I get that time reversal is making time go backward instead of forward, but what is the word 'discrete' doing there?

Thanks in advance!
