(2) In lectures we have demonstrated the transformation rule for the components in one inertial frame in terms of another: W

(2) In lectures we have demonstrated the transformation rule for the components in one inertial frame in terms of another: W = AV where A, represents a Lorentz transformation so that Nab = And Ad. Using the fact V.V = nab VV is an invariant (does not change under a change of inertial frame) derive the transformation rules for the metric Nab. Show that in fact lab = lab (3) i.e. the components of n do not change under a Lorentz boost (without loss of generality just take a Lorentz boost in teh positive x direction). This is the component version of the statement in question 1.
