I am starting to learn Special and General realitivity by reading through Bernard F. Schutz's book "A First Course in General Realitivity". However I can't seem to grasp the relationship between two reference frames as compared with a SpaceTime diagram. I understand the geometry of the diagrams but how are the axis on the primed reference frame positioned with relation to the standard axis at right angles?
Also I don't under stand the lorentz transformation and the consequences of applying this transformation to the equations.
If anyone could answer my questions (however broad they may be) I would greatly appreciate the help.
