Lorentz transformations form the group of linear isometries of Minkowski space.

In physics, a Lorentz transformation is the conversion of space and time between two different inertial frames of reference.

According to Einstein the principles of Special Relativity are mathematically expressed by Lorentz transformations owing to which it is possible to transform equations for mechanical and electromechanical phenomena between inertial systems.[1]
