Is it fair to call the lorentz factor the derivative of measured time relative to proper time? I've seen the lorentz factor equated twice now to [itex]\frac{dt}{d\tau}[/itex] and I wanted to know whether that was a legitimate way to look at it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thank you
