Poincaré is a subgroup of Galilei in one space dimension more
Elizalde, E. (Emili), 1950-
Universitat de Barcelona
Through an imaginary change of coordinates, the ordinary Poincar algebra is shown to be a subalgebra of the Galilei one in four space dimensions. Through a subsequent contraction the remaining Lie generators are eliminated in a natural way. An application of these results to connect Galilean and relativistic field equations is discussed.
