Special relativity is one of the high points of the undergraduate mathematical physics syllabus. Nick Woodhouse writes for those approaching the subject with a background in mathematics: he aims to build on their familiarity with the foundational material and the way of thinking taught in first-year mathematics courses, but not to assume an unreasonable degree of prior knowledge of traditional 5/5(1). The book is organized into two parts. The first part traces the historical development of the special theory of relativity, including Einstein's contribution, the elementary consequences of the Lorentz transformation, and applications in quantum theory.

Book Description John Wiley & Sons Inc, United States, Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Introduction to Special Relativity By Robert Resnick, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute This book gives an excellent introduction to the theory of special relativity. This book offers an essential bridge between college-level introductions and advanced graduate-level books on special relativity. It begins at an elementary level, presenting and discussing the basic concepts normally covered in college-level works, including the Lorentz transformation.

There are a great number of really excellent books on relativity, but no particular book is good for everyone: the reader is as important as that which is being read. To be honest I imagine that self-learning relativity to be quite difficult. It. Relativity (both the Special and General theories), quantum mechanics, and thermodynamics are the three major theories on which modern physics is based. What is unique about these three theories, as distinct from say the theory of electromagnetism, is their generality. Embodied in these.

Summary Special Relativity Einstein's third paper was entitled "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies." Although this paper challenged foundational notions about space and time, each of its parts was simply a response to an important problem facing the physics community of Einstein's time.

The general aim of this book is to present the theory of relativity as a unified whole, making clear the reasons which led to its adoption, explaining its basic meaning as far as possible in non-mathematical terms, and revealing the limited truth of some of the tacit “common sense” assumptions which make it difficult for us to appreciate its full implications.

The principle of general relativity applied to the Euclidean space is thus confirmed whenever the theories it allows to formulate are in agreement with the observations, that is to say always, or almost always. The theory of special relativity applies the principle of general relativity.

Relativity: The Special and the General Theory began as a short paper and was eventually published as a book written by Albert Einstein with the aim of giving: "an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical Reviews: K.

The book walks the reader through the development of the special and general theories of relativity and the supporting theories they were built upon. Starting with the special theory and its limited applicability and the later development of the more universal general theory, aimed at covering the deficiencies of the s: K.

To enjoy this book a basic foundation is required in partial differential equations, wave theory, tensors, and Maxwell's equations. This is obviously a small audience. If you have a background in these areas, this book is an enjoyable read. It ties together electromagnetism, special relativity, and Reviews: Then, at the end ofhe published a small book entitled On the Special and the General Theory of Relativity, Generally Comprehensible.

This work was written with as little mathematics as possible and was designed to appeal to an even broader readership, albeit one still somewhat educated in mathematics or physics. Book Description Springer London Ltd, United Kingdom, Paperback.

Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book provides readers with the tools needed to understand the physical basis of special relativity and will enable a confident mathematical understanding of.

The general theory of relativity, together with the necessary parts of the theory of invariants, is dealt with in the author’s book Die Grundlagen der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie (The Foundations of the General Theory of Relativity) — Joh.

Ambr. Barth, ; this book assumes some familiarity with the special theory of relativity. Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is a superb place to begin a serious study of physics. --SciTech Book News Judging from his book, Helliwell must be a fine teacher.

He achieves a rare clarity. For instance, the derivation of the standard kinematic results starting from Einstein s postulates is outstandingly clear.

Albert Einstein () in this book introduces to the general reader his theory of relativity: the special and the general theory. We see that special relativity, which has emerged from the Maxwell-Lorentz theory of electromagnetic phenomena, shows that the laws of science appear to be the same for all moving observers regardless of their speed, all in the absence of gravity/5().

ByAlbert Einstein was a world-famous professor of physics at the University of Berlin, and he had seen several scientists and popularizers write books about his special theory of relativity. Book Description World Scientific Publishing Co Pte Ltd, Singapore, Hardback.

Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This book, first appearing in German in under the title Spezielle Relativitatstheorie fur Studienanfanger, offers access to the special theory of relativity for readers with a background in mathematics and physics comparable to a high school honors degree.

e-books in Special Theory of Relativity category The Hyperbolic Theory of Special Relativity by John F Barrett -The book is a historically based exposition and an extension of the hyperbolic version of special relativity first proposed by Varicak ( etc) and others not long after the appearance of the early papers of Einstein and Minkowski.

This is a superb introduction to Special Relativity, which this writer, who is certainly no genius, was able to work through at age 18 (not without effort). The material on General Relativity (GR) is no harder, but much less detailed, so that one cannot hope to get a realistic idea of what GR is really about from this book.

(relativity being too controversial then). Einstein wrote two theories of relativity; the work is known as “special relativity” because it deals only with the special case of uniform (i.e. non-accelerating) motion. In he published his “general theory of relativity”, dealing withgravityandacceleration.
