Dear Gyula,

What concerns me now is not that the charges,

masses, and fields are conserved, but that the

Lorentz invariant expression itself, may only

be an approximation. And I am still under the

(stupid maybe) impression that a Lorentz

invariant derivation of motion is identical to

using the Lorentz factor to correct the Lorentz

transformation matrix. That is, that the Lorentz

factor and the Lorentz invariant are the same

thing. Are you able to address these concerns I

have?

Sincerely,

Bill Eshleman
