A Write Out The Matrix That Describes A Galilean Transformation

(a) Write out the matrix that describes a Galilean transformation (Eq. 12.12).

(b) Write out the matrix describing a Lorentz transformation along the y axis.

(c) Find the matrix describing a Lorentz transformation with velocity v along the x axis followed by a Lorentz transformation with velocity v along the y axis. Does it matter in what order the transformations are carTied out?
