article description
Traditional causality relation of special relativity is a lattice in the simplest case of 1-D space (2-D space-time), but it is no longer a lattice in the actual 3-D space (and 4-D space-time). We show that if we take into account effects of string theory, then we get a lattice-type causality relation even for the 4-D space-time.
