The Lorentz Transform in Relativistic Physics

Addition of velocities in special relativity is not straightforward: the parallelogram addition law does not apply because velocity addition is neither commutative nor associative. This package furnishes functionality to work with Lorentz transforms and the gyrogroup structure of three-velocities. For general relativity, see the 'schwarzschild' package.
