Question: Using the Physics package for special relativity

March 23 2014 lemelinm 1350


Hello everybody,


I want to use the physics package in the context of special relativity.  I am mostly interrested with the Lorenzts transformations, not having to unprotect gamma all the time, the 4-vectors for space, time and momentum in (ct,x,y).  For exemple, to be able to calculate the invariant (ct)^2-(r^2).  A small document (or worksheet) would be very nice of you.

I understande that someone could say that I want to use a gun to kill a fly.  But this is a process that will lead me in using it in general relativity and using tensors in my calculations.  It would be very interresting to have a Student,Physics package.  Don't you think so?

Thank you in advance for your trouble and comprehension.
