Lorentz transformation is not associative. The non-associativity makes it frame dependent; and it does not fulfill relativistic requirements including reciprocity principle. The non associativity also leads to ambiguities when three or more velocities are involved. We have proposed an associative Reciprocal Symmetric Transformation (RST) to replace Lorentz transformation. RST is complex and is compatible with Pauli and Dirac algebra.
