hey Folks,
Please see attachment. I'm in doubt about the equation 5.15a. Indeed, it is said on the line just above it that : "in a frame where particles have velocity Va" which means the lab frame , say. Then in this frame the time component of 4velocity is the Lorentz contraction factor whereas here it is taken as 1 ? But here the factor is due to the volume contraction ... Can someone clarify please ?
Thanks,
