Is corretct, that a general lorenz transformation don't satisfaction axioms of group structure?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let, GL(A,B) is general Lorenz transformacion from a frame A to frame B, which B is moveing a velocity V with respect to A.

And GL(B,C) is likewise G. L. from B to C. A frame C has a valocity U with respect to B.

Further, Letter W is velocity U observe in frame A.

BUT. Transformation GL(A,C) from frame A to C, where C is moveing just velocity W (to A) is NOT identity with rolling transformacions GL(A,B) (V) "+" GL(B,C)(U)!

I know. This is centrality for new relativistic effect: Thomas precession.

But, I cannot accept, that operation composing of General Lorenez transformations don't make again General Lorenz transformation (a set is not close for this operation).

How, do you explain this?

thx
