principle of relativity
The principle of relativity is the core principle of special relativity. It declares that all constant velocity observers are subject to an identical set of physical laws and that, therefore, every constant-velocity observer is justified in claiming that he or she is at rest. This principle is generalized by the principle of equivalence.
