Hi. I was wondering if anyone has a simple derivation of relativistic momentum from lorentz transformation or the relativistic velocity addition formulas. I have attempted to understand this example:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

but I have been having some difficulties understanding some of it. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.
