The Lorentz transformations is a set of equations that describe a linear transformation between a stationary reference frame and a reference frame in constant velocity. The equations are given by

x'=\frac{x-vt}{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^2}{c^2}}} , y'=y , z'=z , t'=\frac{t-\frac{vx}{c^2}}{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^2}{c^2}}}
