CONT

Une échelle de temps est dite temps-coordonnée si elle est diffusée dans une région de l'espace, avec des potentiels de gravitation variés selon une procédure bien définie, de telle sorte que deux événements séparés dans l'espace soient considérés comme étant simultanés si les horloges coordonnées sont synchronisées selon cette procédure et donnent la même indication de lecture au moment des événements.
