Hi , I'd like to know if anybody could help me understand the following: I was following the following derivation of the Lorentz transformations (http://vishnu.mth.uct.ac.za/omei/gr/chap1/node4.html) and i managed to understand everything except possibly the most crucial step....how does one get the transformations: c(tbar)=(ipsilon)ct+(Beta)x and xbar=(lambda)ct+(delta)x ??? ... i m an A level student with pure maths and physics (here in malta we only do 2 subjects at a level ) if any body could explain to me how one gets to the transformations or from where to find an explanation i d be super-grateful...thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
