The action of the Poincare group P on the phase space Γ of two interacting relativistic particles is studied. Trajectories are defined by introducing two fixation constraints which, together with two first-class dynamical constraints, form a second-class system. By a projection followed by an injection, a pair of world lines are defined in Minkowski space. A world-line condition is determined by the commutation of the Poincare transformation with the projection-injection map. The results are compared with those of our preceding paper.
