Special relativity provides the foundations of our knowledge of space and time. Without it, our understanding of the world, and its place in the universe, would be unthinkable. This book gives a concise, elementary, yet exceptionally modern, introduction to special relativity. It is a gentle yet serious 'first encounter', in that it conveys... more...

One of the problems facing mathematics and physics is that mathematicians and physicists speak languages that the others find hard to understand. These notes take a fundamental part of physics, the special theory of relativity and describe it in terms that can be understood by mathematics students who have studied the two basic undergraduate topics,... more...

Based on his famous final year undergraduate lectures on theoretical physics at Birkbeck College, Bohm presents the theory of relativity as a unified whole, making clear the reasons which led to its adoption and explaining its basic meaning. With clarity and grace, he also reveals the limited truth of some of the "common sense" assumptions which make... more...
