Also, is it essential that it's enclosed in brackets [tex]\left(\Lambda_{\nu}^{\mu}\right)[/tex]

to indicate the entire matrix and not a particular component? Does it matter that much or is it an obvious faux pas?

Thank you

I'm not a fan of the [itex](\Lambda^\mu{}_\nu)[/itex] notation. I assume it denotes the matrix with [itex]\Lambda^\mu{}_\nu[/itex] on row [itex]\mu[/itex], column [itex]\nu[/itex]? I would just write [itex]\Lambda[/itex].

Note that in most books, the horizontal positioning of the indices is important.
