If we consider the vector ( E, B ) as a column, then [tex] E^2 - B^2 [/tex] is preserved after mutiplication by a matrix -

| cosh( v) i.sinh(v) |

| i.sinh(v) cosh(v) |

I think this transformation belongs to a group, but I can't put a name to it.

Does anyone recognise it ?

This matrix

1 i

i 1

also seems to preserve E^2-B^2 but is it a member of the preceeding ?
