It is the purpose of this book to provide an introduction to the Special Theory of Relativity which is accessible to any student who has had an introduction to general physics and some slight acquaintance with the calculus. Much of the material is at a level suitable for high school students who have had advanced placement in physics Cited by: This book is the first one that explains the special relativity very thoroughly.

It is not like any others that talk and talk and doesn't give you any substance. There is no relativity without math, and this book uses simple math, mainly algebra, no calculus.

The math is very easy to by:   Introduction The Special Theory of Relativity is a theory of classical physics that was developed at the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century. It changed our understanding of older physical theories such as Newtonian Physics and led to early Quantum Theory and later the Theory of General Relativity.

lOAN INTRODUCTION TO THE SPECIAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY purpose here to emphasize the importance of the choice of a coordinate frame in physics, though clearly the choice has far broaderimplications in the affairs ofmen. The logical choice of a coordinate frame to Newton was one in which the stars were at rest.

Author: Costas Christodoulides; Publisher: Springer ISBN: Category: Science Page: View: DOWNLOAD NOW» This book offers a comprehensive, university-level introduction to Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity.

This new edition textbook including a problems and solution section develops Special Relativity in a systematic way and offers the unique feature of having more than problems with detailed solutions to empower students to gain a real understanding of this core subject in physics.

A book by Robert Resnick. "Special Relativity: An Introduction with Problems and Solutions" by Michael Tsamparlis covers a lot of stuff and goes in depth.

It can also be used as a "SR cookbook", because if you need some SR formula, you will probably find it there. If not, then you probably won't find it easily in some other SR textbook. Rindler is the classic (Intro to Special Relativity). Most modern books include it as a subset of general relativity.

Hartle and Moore are two good books at the advanced undergraduate level. Moore pays a lot of attention to developing mathematical understanding. Relativity: An Introduction to the Special Theory. The most important feature in this book is the simple presentation with details of calculations.

It is very easy to follow. Fairly sophisticated calculations are developed very rapidly. The presentation is logical and the detailed coverage makes this book very readable and useful. texts All Books All Texts latest This Just In Smithsonian Libraries FEDLINK Introduction to the special theory of relativity Item Preview remove-circle Introduction to the special theory of relativity by Kacser, Claude.

Description Introduction to the special theory of relativity. PDF

General relativity is a beautiful scheme for describing the gravitational fleld and the equations it obeys.

Nowadays this theory is often used as a prototype for other, more intricate constructions to describe forces between elementary particles or other branches of fundamental physics.

This is why in an introduction to general relativity it is of. Concise, well-written treatment of epochal theory of modern physics covers classical relativity and the relativity postulate, time dilation, the twin paradox, momentum and energy, particles of zero mass, electric and magnetic fields and forces, and more.

First, the book introduces special relativity in a simple way. Enjoy the puzzles and look at the everyday world with new eyes. Challenge the arguments and experiments for an invariant speed limit in nature. Be captivated by time dilation, the twins paradox, length contraction, aberration, mass-energy equivalence and the existence of horizons.

Comprehensive coverage of the special theory (frames of reference, Lorentz transformation, relativistic mechanics of mass points, more), the general theory (principle of equivalence, Riemann-Christoffel curvature tensor, more) and the unified theory (Weyl's gauge-invariant geometry, Kaluza's five-dimensional theory and projective field theories, more.)4/5(1).
