Lorentz Transformation

Janusz Murakowski

February 28, 1997


The article presents an elementary way to derive Lorentz transformation with the use of minimum assumptions. In fact the only physical assumption, that is taken, is the mechanical equivalence of different observers moving at a uniform velocity with respect to each other. This, supplemented by the assumption of simplicity, results in three possible transformations: elliptical rotation, Galilean transformation and Lorentz transformation.
