11.2 The Postulates of Special Relativity and the Lorentz Transformation In 1904
Lorentz showed that Maxwell's equations in vacuum were invariant under a
transformation of coordinates given by (11.19) below, and now called a Lorentz ...
11.5 With the definition that xM = [(v • x)v]/y2 and XA = x — x,,, equations (1 1.20)
can be combined to yield the general Lorentz transformation:* 1 Ax•v 1 x' = x + t' =
- 1 V — (11.21) It should be noted that (1 1.21) represents a single Lorentz ...
This is then exactly the requirement that Lorentz transformations are rotations in a
four-dimensional Euclidean space or, more correctly, ... 1,2, 3,4 (11.70) where the
coefficients a^, are constants characteristic of the particular transformation.

A soul crushing technical manual written by a sadist that has served as the right of passage for physics PhDs since the dawn of time. Every single one of my professors studied this book, and every ... Read full review
