**spacetime**, specified by the coordinates x,y,z and t.
n''-dimensional continuum consisting of dimensions of both space & time. Normally spacetime is considered as having 4 dimensions (''x'', ''y'', ''z'', ''t ), but higher-dimensional spacetimes are often encountered in theoretical physics, e.g. the 5-dimensional spacetime of Kaluza-Klein theory or the 11 dimensions of spacetime in M-theory. - "a Schwarzschild spacetime," "a Reissner-NordstrÃ¶m spacetime," etc. as opposed to sense (2) describing the universe's spacetime as a whole: "a Minkowski spacetime," "a 5-dimensional spacetime," etc.
