The interest in this subject has contributed to the understanding and advancement of other physical phenomena occurring in the universe and also in the context of nonrelativistic physics. For example, in the galaxy formation [5, 6], to study vortex solutions in nonabelian gauge theories with spontaneous symmetry breaking [7] and to study the gravitational analogue of the Aharonov-Bohm effect [8-12].
Galilean spacetime plays the same role in nonrelativistic physics that Minkowski space-time does in relativistic physics.
