AnySpeed Acceleration Solver (Relativity)

Logo for AnySpeed Acceleration Solver (Relativity)
By defining time only in context of a specified 'map-frame' of motion, and then introducing time on a traveler's clocks as the invariant in Minkowski's space-time version of Pythagoras' Theorem (i.e. the metric equation), one can solve 1-D constant acceleration problems at anyspeed almost as simply as low-speed problems using Galileo's equations. This on-line resource does just that, allowing one to find traveler time (for example) on a 1-gee trip over the 2,000,000 lightyears to Andromeda.
