m (r2.7.1) (robot Adding: ko:빛원뿔 좌표계) 

Both x<sup>+</sup> and x<sup></sup> can act as "time" coordinates.

A boost in the tx plane shows up as <math>x^+ \to e^{+\beta}x^+</math>, <math>x^ \to e^{\beta}x^</math>, <math>x^i \to x^i</math>. A rotation in the ijplane only affects <math>x_\perp</math>. The parabolic transformations show up as <math>x^+ \to x^+</math>, <math>x^ \to x^ + \delta_{ij}\alpha^i x^j + \frac{\alpha^2}{2} x^+</math>, <math>x^i \to x^i + \alpha^i x^+</math>. Another set of parabolic transformations show up as <math>x^+ \to x^+ + \delta_{ij}\alpha^i x^j + \frac{\alpha^2}{2} x^</math>, <math>x^ \to x^</math> and <math>x^i \to x^i + \alpha^i x^</math>.
