Representing Arbitrary Boosts for Undergraduates.
Frahm, Charles P.
American Journal of Physics, v47 n10 p870-72 Oct 1979
Presented is a derivation for the matrix representation of an arbitrary boost, a Lorentz transformation without rotation, suitable for undergraduate students with modest backgrounds in mathematics and relativity. The derivation uses standard vector and matrix techniques along with the well-known form for a special Lorentz transformation. (BT)
