Cylindrical coordinate of Galilean transformation

  1. Dec 19, 2014 #1
    [itex]r\rightarrow r-2qz[/itex] and [itex]\psi\rightarrow\psi+q\cdot(r-qz)[/itex], I don't know how to derive it, anybody know?

    This question results from the book "Optical Solitons: From Fibers to Photonic Crystals [1 ed.]" section 6.5

    Does the expression or theorem have a name? Perhaps you can search on it to see what pops up.
