Lorentz Transformations

Definition

Astronomy

  • Equations derived from special relativity which describe ways of relating measurements made by observers in motion relative to each other. The transformations contain the mathematics describing, e.g., the change in the apparent size of physical objects, and the change in the apparent rate at which clocks run, near to the velocity of light.
