I'm reading Einstein's "Relativity, the Special and General Theory" And it just talked about the Lorentz transformations, but I don't quite understand what it's used for. I understand how the time dialation and length contraction equations are derived from it but I don't understand how to use the Transformation itself. Could anybody enlighten me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
