2.2 Lorentz transformations for light-cone coordinates.

Consider coordinates and the associated light-cone coordinates . Write the following Lorentz transformations in terms of the light-cone coordinates.

(a) A boost with velocity parameter in the direction.

~~~

The matrix is its own inverse.

Apply the result to the original transformation:
