## Main Question or Discussion Point

Dear reader,

there is a physics problem where I couldn't understand what the solutions.

It is about the lorentz transformation of a bilinear spinor matrix element thing.

So the blue colored equation signs are the parts which I couldn't figure out how.

There must be some steps in between which were skipped on the solution.

For example, we know that the original matrixelement contains Γ12T. Why does it turn back to ΓμνT? Where does the Γ02T element come from?

And lastly, why did we have to transpose the Γ's in the end, so that the indices get to the top?

Thank you very much for your time :)
