# Does Lorentz Invariance depend on the continuity of spacetime? [duplicate]

We may also ask: Is the assumption of continuity of spacetime required by Lorentz Invariance?

• I'm not sure why this got downvoted. Inquiring whether a discrete spacetime breaks Lorentz invariance seems sensible to me since the answer is that yes it does. – John Rennie Sep 28 '16 at 16:23
• Though I think this has been asked before, for example Discreteness of Spacetime and Violation of Lorentz symmetry. A Nobel prize winner answered that question! – John Rennie Sep 28 '16 at 16:25
• +1 Trying to balance the books, I would be interested in the answer to a good question. – user108787 Sep 28 '16 at 16:26
