One of a set of twins born in 1980 remains on earth ; the other rides in the rocket . The rocket ship is so constructed that it has an acceleration g in its own rest frame ( this makes the occupants feel at home ) .
The length of the 4 - vector p is a Lorentz invariant quantity which is characteristic of the particle : 22 ( p . p ) = ( p ' : p ' ) = - ( 12.5 ) c2 In the rest frame of the particle ( p ' = 0 ) the scalar product ( 12.5 ) gives the ...
To see this we consider a Lorentz transformation from the original frame to a system K " moving with a velocity ( E ~ B ) u ' = c ( 12.100 ) E2 relative to the first . In this frame the electric and magnetic fields are B2114 E , ...
