Mathematics shows that the Lorentz transformations are not self-consistent
Einstein's theory of special relativity is a generally accepted theory that analyses relationships between two inertial reference frames moving at a constant speed against each other. In this work, we analyze the derivation of the Lorentz transformations only from the point of view of mathematics. This analysis comes to contradiction with the original conditions for the derivation of the Lorentz transformations. This leads to the conclusion that the Lorentz transformations are not self-consistent.
