The goal is to be able to express and understand a Lorentz transformation using

four-vector and matrix notation. Use the questions as a guide but feel free to describe the math in other ways if you prefer.


  1. Describe the classical position of a postion as a four vector and label its parts.
  2. Find the inner product for the momentum of a particle  Pμ Pμ .
  3. Write down the form of a genral Lorentz transformation Λμν .
