How Lorentz transformation improve the knowledge on space-time concept

Thanks to Lorentz transformation (name given by Henrì Poincarè) we have a theory that aim to give a scientific description of the change of viewpoint from one inertial frame to a second moving one. This specific change of viewpoint is called a (Lorentz) boost. Why Lorentz transformations are so important for human knowledge? His formulae for this boost are central to the theories of relativity, both special and general. So starting from the knowledge of a square root, you will have the possibility to study special relativity in all its… Read more How Lorentz transformation improve the knowledge on space-time concept
