11.5 With the definition that x = [(v. x)w]|vo and x = x – x, equations (11.20) can be
combined to yield the general Lorentz transformation:* x = x + –––. ** v--—w p? p
? t;2 1 – = 1–3 1 x • W (11.21) r--H(-o) It should be noted that (11.21) represents ...
If slo -> 0, the events are said to have a space-like separation, because it is
always possible to find a Lorentz transformation to a new coordinate system K'
where (t1' – ta) = 0 and siz” = (x1' – 22')* + (y1' – yo)” + (21' – 2,')* > 0 (11.65) That
This is then exactly the requirement that Lorentz transformations are rotations in a
four-dimensional Euclidean space or, ... Q.: pu = 1, 2, 3, 4 (11.70) pivovw 3.
