Lorentz scalar
four-scalar
scalar quantity invariant to the general Lorentz transformation

EXAMPLE Examples are four-scalar product and squared four-magnitude.

Note 1 to entry: Any Lorentz scalar is a Lorentz invariant as well. The term "Lorentz scalar" is used particularly for quantities where the classification of tensors of different rank n MathType@MTEF@5@5@+= feaagKart1ev2aqatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbbjxAHX garuavP1wzZbItLDhis9wBH5garmWu51MyVXgarqqtubsr4rNCHbGe aGqipG0dh9qqqrpepC0xbbL8F4rqqrFfpeea0xe9Lq=Jc9vqaqpepm 0xbba9pwe9Q8fs0=yqaqpepae9pg0FirpepeKkFr0xfr=xfr=xb9ad baGaaiGabaqaamaaceGaaiGacaabaaGcbaGaamOBaaaa@33F9@ is appropriate, and n=0 MathType@MTEF@5@5@+= feaagKart1ev2aqatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbbjxAHX garuavP1wzZbItLDhis9wBH5garmWu51MyVXgarqqtubsr4rNCHbGe aGqipG0dh9qqqrpepC0xbbL8F4rqqrFfpeea0xe9Lq=Jc9vqaqpepm 0xbba9pwe9Q8fs0=yqaqpepae9pg0FirpepeKkFr0xfr=xfr=xb9ad baGaaiGabaqaamaaceGaaiGacaabaaGcbaGaamOBaiabg2da9iaaic daaaa@35B9@ .

scalaire de Lorentz, m
grandeur scalaire invariante par la transformation de Lorentz

EXEMPLE Le produit quadriscalaire et la norme au carré d’un quadrivecteur constituent des exemples de scalaires de Lorentz.

Note 1 à l’article: Tout scalaire de Lorentz est également un invariant de Lorentz. Le terme "scalaire de Lorentz" est utilisé notamment pour les grandeurs avec lesquelles la classification des tenseurs de rangs différents n MathType@MTEF@5@5@+= feaagKart1ev2aqatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbbjxAHX garuavP1wzZbItLDhis9wBH5garmWu51MyVXgarqqtubsr4rNCHbGe aGqipG0dh9qqqrpepC0xbbL8F4rqqrFfpeea0xe9Lq=Jc9vqaqpepm 0xbba9pwe9Q8fs0=yqaqpepae9pg0FirpepeKkFr0xfr=xfr=xb9ad baGaaiGabaqaamaaceGaaiGacaabaaGcbaGaamOBaaaa@33F9@ est appropriée, et n=0 MathType@MTEF@5@5@+= feaagKart1ev2aqatCvAUfeBSjuyZL2yd9gzLbvyNv2CaerbbjxAHX garuavP1wzZbItLDhis9wBH5garmWu51MyVXgarqqtubsr4rNCHbGe aGqipG0dh9qqqrpepC0xbbL8F4rqqrFfpeea0xe9Lq=Jc9vqaqpepm 0xbba9pwe9Q8fs0=yqaqpepae9pg0FirpepeKkFr0xfr=xfr=xb9ad baGaaiGabaqaamaaceGaaiGacaabaaGcbaGaamOBaiabg2da9iaaic daaaa@35B9@ .
