Special Relativity: A Heuristic Approach provides a qualitative exposition of relativity theory on the basis of the constancy of the speed of light. Using Einstein's signal velocity as the defining idea for the notion of simultaneity and the fact that the speed of light is independent of the motion of its source, chapters delve into a. Nov 23, · akikopavolka.com: Special Relativity (M.I.T. Introductory Physics) (): A.P. French: Books This is an excellent text for practicing relativity problems. It is full of example problems and has the answers to every practice problem. And it ex.

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. Special relativity is a theory of the structure of spacetime. It was introduced in Einstein's paper "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" (for the contributions of many other physicists see History of special relativity). Special relativity is based on two postulates which .

Oct 29, · This is the best book on special relativity that I have ever come across. It truly teaches the reader where all the ideas from special relativity come from. The author spends incredible time trying to explain difficult ideas in a fashion that is as clear as possible/5(21).

Dec 17, · Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is a superb place to begin a serious study of physics. 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/5(13). Robert Resnick promotes special relativity in his book “Introduction to Special Relativity”.

Starting on page 53 discussing clock synchronization, figure illustrates simultaneous lightning strikes in two frames, one resting and the other moving. Signal motion in the rest frame is ballistic while in the moving frame it is akikopavolka.com by: The book is translated from the German, and the author wants to supplement the normal German high school and college courses in special relativity with materials that might actually make it understandable.

If you have read some populist books, or even if you have not, and want to get a much deeper understanding of SR, Cited by: 7. Special Relativity is a featured book on Wikibooks because it contains substantial content, it is well-formatted, and the Wikibooks community has decided to feature it on the main page or in other places.

Please continue to improve it and thanks for the great work so. This book is a great mathematical introduction or review of special relativity.

I loved A.P. French's "An Introduction into Quantum Physics" and this book is equally good by getting into the heart of the principles and the mathematics/5. Jun 23, · Contributors; This a textbook on special relativity, aimed at undergraduates who have already completed a freshman survey course.

The treatment of electromagnetism assumes previous exposure to Maxwell's equations in integral form, but no knowledge of vector calculus. The aim of this book is to introduce people without a strong physics (or even scientific) background to the special and general theories of relativity - theories that Einstein was the primary developer of/5.

There is an old book by Max Born, called Einstein's Theory of Relativity which explains the Special Relativity in great detail without any advanced mathematics and a little bit of General Relativity. Best Sellers in Relativity Physics #1.

Referred to a system of co-ordinates, the scene of any event will be determined (for the main part) by the specification of the lengths of the three perpendiculars or co-ordinates (x, y, z) which can be dropped from the scene of the event to those three plane surfaces.

This book is devoted to a rigorous mathematical treatment of the flat Minkowski spacetime of special relativity. It pays particular attention to the Lorentz group and the causal structure of the theory, but also treats the electromagnetic field tensor, spinors, and the topology of Minkowski spacetime.

InAlbert Einstein published the theory of special relativity, which explains how to interpret motion between different inertial frames of reference — that is, places that are moving at constant speeds relative to each other. The main subjects of this book are special relativity and classical field theory, and this book is very successful in treating both subjects at a good level of detail, requiring, as a pre-requisite, only undergraduate knowledge/5.

Special Relativity by Philip Harris Objective of this book is to explain the principle of relativity; its importance and universal application. Topics covered includes: Background History, The Lorentz Transformations, Spacetime, Dynamics and Kinematics, Four-Vectors, Relativity and Electromagnetism.

May 07, · By far the best introductory text on special relativity has to be Spacetime Physics by Taylor and Wheeler. Speckled with illuminating examples, this book is the best out there; specially if one is looking for a self-study kind of a book.

Nov 21, · Special Relativity is one of the foundation blocks of physics. This book will introduce the reader to, perhaps, the most profound discovery of the twentieth century and the modern world: the universe has at least four dimensions.Nov 09, · Hello everyone, I'm studying physics as an undergraduate and I'm currently taking the course special relativity.

But sadly I'm not too big a fan of the book we are using for the course. So I was wondering what are the best books you know of regarding special relativity for undergraduates.The book is intended to be used both as a textbook for an advanced undergraduate teaching course in Special Relativity but also as a reference book for the future.

In that respect it is linked to an online repository with more than problems, carefully classified according to subject area and solved in detail, providing an independent Brand: Springer International Publishing.
