I have been studying the lorentz-transformation derivation but I can't quite get a proper answer as to why you can start with the assumption that:
x' = ax + bt
t' = cx + dt
The assumption is that "the transformations must be linear". So my first question is, what does that mean, that a, b, c and d are constants? And the 2nd question: How do you argue for that.
