Lorentz Invariant Computations

Donald Greenspan

In this note, it is shown how to compute in special relativistic mechanics with numerical formulas which either are Lorentz invariant or are related directly to Lorentz invariant formulas. Applications are made to the study of a relativistic harmonic oscillator and to the motion of an electric particle in a magnetic field.
