In this chapter we show how the formalization of trigonometry in the pseudo-Euclidean plane allows us to treat exhaustively all kinds of motions and to give a complete formalization to what is called today the "twin paradox". After a century this problem continues to be the subject of many papers, not only relative to experimental tests but also regarding physical and epistemological considerations. We begin by recalling how this "name" originates. © 2008 Birkhäuser Verlag AG.
