11.5 With the definition that XM = [(v • x)v]/t>2 and x± = \ — XM, equations (11.20)
can be combined to yield the general Lorentz transformation:* 1 ,\x-v 1 x' = x + - 1
• V — (11.21) It should be noted that (1 1.21) represents a single Lorentz ...
At time / the electron's rest frame K'and the laboratory frame K are related by a
Lorentz transformation with velocity v. At time / + dt the electron's rest frame has
now changed to K", related to K by a Lorentz transformation with velocity v + 6v.
Sometimes a graphical display of Lorentz transformations is made using a real
time variable a;0 = ct, rather than x4. This is called a Minkowski diagram and has
the virtue of dealing with real quantities. It has the major disadvantage that the ...

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
