Landau classical field theory question

  1. Feb 15, 2014 #1
    One page 24 of his book on classical field theory (4th edition), Landau derives the relativistic equation of motion for a uniformly accelarated particle. How does he get the differential equation that leads him to his result?

    I assume it is as follows. He took du=dv in both frames, then said ds=1/gamma * cdt. But that still boters me.
