Could anyone provide a derivation of the Lorentz transformations for me? And if the Lorentz transformations existed before Einstein came up with special relativity, then why wasn't the Lorentz guy able to come up with special relativity? It seems to me that he did all the work in showing that space contracts and time slows down as you approach the speed of light.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
