Homework Assignment 1. Due September 12, 2012.
Hint for Carroll problem 1.10: I hope we all agree as to how a (0,2) tensor should transform, but make sure the properties of the Lorentz transformations you write down are correct. Among other details, remember that Lambdamumu' is the INVERSE of Lambdamu'mu (with the indices ordered in this way). See page 18 of your book.
There are a number of equivalent ways to arrive at the solution of how the electric and magnetic fields transform. I expect you to do the problem as written, transforming Fmu nu, but you should easily be able to check your own work. And as always, be very careful if you're doing the problem in matrix form rather than component form!
