The Lorentz transformation has some limitations: (a) it is not associative, (b) it is not isotropic (in the sense that the triangular law of addition of velocities is valid for velocities in some directions and not valid for velocities in other directions), and (c) it does not have the group property without rotation. In this paper we have applied mixednumber algebra to develop the mixednumber Lorentz transformation, which is free of these limitations. Mixednumber Lorentz transformations for electric and magnetic fields are also presented.

Keywords: associative, isotropic, group property
