Simple question about the lorentz transformation

  1. Sep 17, 2007 #1
    can anybody give me just equation of the transformation in a linear form ? without any complications just the equation of Lt. 10x

    Lorentz-Boost in x-direction:
    in units where c=1.

    You can add different directions and rotations to obtain the full Lorentz-Transformations, and translations to obtain inhomogenous LT, sometimes called Poincaré Transformations.
