Hello! I read that for a boost, for which we have a matrix ##\Lambda## we must satisfy ##\Lambda_\alpha^\mu g_{\mu \nu} \Lambda_\eta^\nu = g_{\alpha \beta}##. I am not sure I understand this. If we have a boost along the x axis the ##\Lambda_0^0## component is ##\gamma##, but ##\gamma^2 \neq 1 = g_{00}##. So how do I apply that formula?
