Using Lorentz Transformations for Proofs

The equation for a spherical wave front of a light pulse that begins at the origin at t=0 is: x^2+y^2+z^2-(ct)^2=0.

Using the lorentz transformation show that such a light pulse also has a spherical wave front in S' by showing that x^2+y^2+z^2-(ct)^2=0 in S'.

Solution Summary

This solution involves using the Lorentz transformations for a mathematical proofs.
