Lorentz from Velocities formula


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to obtain the Lorentz transformation out of the velocity addition formula ?


What a strange question, the point of a Lorentz transformation is it's frame dependent, so although Galilean addition works at small velocities (as I'm sure you know) they're not frame dependent, so that's an indirect answer to your question.


But anyway...explicitly, no.

Snail is for the most part correct, the Lorenz transformations are looking at high velocities in time frame perspectives, Galilean addition is small speeds not velocities. Because they were measured in both directions of an object at rest
