Please critique the articles on math and physics, especially the more mathematical ones. I fear that there could be problems in my presentation or derivations of certain formulas (in physics) or that my understanding of the concept is just wrong !!!

I have a little question as well:

In deriving the lorentz transform for the x-coordinate, [tex]x'=\gamma(x-vt)[/tex] as compared to the galilean transform [tex] x'=x-vt[/tex]. By taking into account length contraction [tex] x'=\frac{1}{\gamma} x[/tex], shouldn't the lorentz transform be [tex] x=\gamma(x-vt)[/tex] instead of [tex]x'=\gamma(x-vt)[/tex], since if we substitute the length contraction formula, x' is already replaced by x divided by one over gamma?
