23.8 The Lorentz Transformation
office hours

Since space and time coordinates are mixed together in the Lorentz transformation, does that mean space and time are fundamentally the same?

Does the Lorentz transformation represent new physics beyond time dilation and length contraction?

Can you explain again how to understand asynchronous clocks starting from the Lorentz Transformation?

When we talk about the synchronous clocks in a moving frame, we used delta t' for the time difference in the reading of two such clocks which we witness from the platform perspective. Shouldn't we be using /delta t?
