Three Kinds of Special Relativity via Inverse Wick Rotation
Abstract
Since the special relativity can be viewed as the physics in an inverse Wick rotation of fourdimensional (4D) Euclid space, which is at almost equal footing with the 4D Riemann/Lobachevski space, there should be important physics in the inverse Wick rotation of 4D Riemann/Lobachevski space. Thus, there are three kinds of special relativity in de Sitter(dS)/Minkowski/antide Sitter(AdS) space at almost equal footing, respectively. There is an instanton tunnelling scenario in the Riemannde Sitter case that may explain why Λ be positive and link with the multiverse.
