Title  Hyperbolic triangle centers : the special relativistic approach 
Author(s)  by Abraham A. Ungar 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer, 2010. 
Description  1 online resource (xvi, 319 p.) 
Abstract Note  After A. Ungar had introduced vector algebra and Cartesian coordinates into hyperbolic geometry in his earlier books, along with novel applications in Einstein's special theory of relativity, the purpose of his new book is to introduce hyperbolic barycentric coordinates, another important concept to embed Euclidean geometry into hyperbolic geometry. It will be demonstrated that, in full analogy to classical mechanics where barycentric coordinates are related to the Newtonian mass, barycentric coordinates are related to the Einsteinian relativistic mass in hyperbolic geometry. Contrary to general belief, Einstein's relativistic mass hence meshes up extraordinarily well with Minkowski's fourvector formalism of special relativity
