Lorentz Transformation - describes how, according to the theory of special relativity, different measurements of space and time by two observers can be converted into the measurements observed in either frame of reference.
Lorentz transformation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The above formula is used for calculating the changes that occur when objects approach the speed of light. An object in motion undergoes 3 relativistic changes: 1) an increase in mass, 2) a contraction in the direction of travel (Lorentz Transformation) and 3) A "slowing down" of time. (Time Dilation)
This is a video on the Lorentz Transformation from Yale University. WATCH IT HERE! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=202fU9qIVK4 In physics, the Lorentz transformation (or transformations) is named after the Dutch physicist Hendrik Lorentz. It was the result of attempts by Lorentz and others to explain how the speed of light was observed to be independent of the reference frame, and to understand the symmetries of the laws of electromagnetism. The Lorentz transformation is in accordance ...
