VOL. 7 | 2006 A New Formula for the Exponents of the Generators of the Lorentz Group
Georgi K. Dimitrov, Ivaïlo M. Mladenov

Editor(s) Ivaïlo M. Mladenov, Manuel de León


Here we derive a new formula for the exponent of an arbitrary matrix in the Lie algebra of the Lorentz group. Our considerations are based on the fact that for each constant electromagnetic field there exist an inertial system in which one can easily solve the respective Lorentz equation and therefore to find the explicit formulas describing the trajectories of the charged particles in this field.
