Abstract : The purpose of the note is to present a simple derivation of the most general form of the homogeneous Lorents transformation. In the process, the decomposition of a generic element, L = P lambda R where P and R are pure spatial rotations and lambda is the onedimensional pure Lorents transformation, is obtained.
