GENERAL LORENTZ TRANSFORMATIONS AND APPLICATIONS

Naila Amir, Muneer Ahmad Rashid

Abstract


In this paper, we solve a formidable nonlinear problem presented by a veteran Physicist C.B.van Wyk in his paper on General Lorentz Transformations and applications [1].We arrived at the solution by first examining the problem in a non-invariant manner.This assured us that the solution of the problem exists.To solve the problem in an invariant fashion, we had to understand the geometry of the situation.This finally gave us a reformulation of the formidable nonlinear prob- lem as a simple linear one. We have verified that the solution of the reformulated problem does solve the original problem.In fact,the original problem can be recov- ered from the reformulated one.
