Homework Help: Derivation of mass invariance using Lorentz transformation

  1. Oct 9, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    As the title suggests, I need help finding resources that clearly shows the step by step process of the derivation of the rest or invariant mass using the Lorentz transformation.

    2. Relevant equations

    Energy-momentum relation

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Not looking for an actual solution (even though that would be a bonus, lol) but I'm looking for a resource that will help me understand this concept. I'm not too picky either, let it be a wiki page to a textbook, I'm just desperate for guidance at this point in time.

    thanks, in advance
