NAME ^

Physics::Lorentz - Package for 4-vectors and transformations

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Physics::Lorentz;
  my $rotation = Physics::Lorentz::Transformation->rotation_euler(
    $alpha, $beta, $gamma
  );
  my $vector = Physics::Lorentz::Vector->new([$t, $x, $y, $z]);
  my $rotated = $rotation->apply($vector);
  # or: $rotated = $rotation * $vector;
  
  ...

DESCRIPTION ^

This package mainly just loads Physics::Lorentz::Transformation and Physics::Lorentz::Vector. The whole of the Physics::Lorentz distribution is intended to help with dealing with 4-vectors and (Poincare) transformations in the associated vector space.

Vectors and transformations are implemented as PDL objects internally.

EXPORT

None.
