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...
- Springer 2013; US$ 19.95
Dieses Buch ist eine Begleitlektüre zum ersten Jahr des Mathematikstudiums und darüber hinaus. Im Mittelpunkt stehen Motivation und Erläuterung der zentralen Begriffsbildungen anhand von Beispielen und exemplarischen Resultaten. Ausgehend von den elementarsten und historisch frühesten mathematischen Konzepten des Messens und Zählens... 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...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 99.00
This book provides a thorough discussion of the concepts and main consequences of special relativity. Treated in detail are the Lorentz transformations, their kinematical consequences (the so-called paradoxes), relativistic mechanics, electrodynamics as an example of a relativistic field theory, and the principal features of relativistic hydrodynamics.... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 73.00
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. The contents develop Relativity as a modern theory of motion, starting... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 287.00
This authoritative volume provides a snapshot of the state of the art in gravitational physics and related mathematical fields, as well as a review of recent achievements and prospects for future work. With contributing authors among the world leaders in their respective fields, this proceedings volume is a worthy addition to this conference series,... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 113.00
This book presents a comprehensive and self-contained exposition of the mathematical theory of impulsive light-like signals in general relativity. Applications are provided in relativistic astrophysics, cosmology and alternative theories of gravity deduced from string theory. Cataclysmic astrophysical events give rise to impulsive light-like signals... more...
- Wiley 2008; US$ 89.00
While the theory of special relativity is often associated with the idea of traveling faster than light, this book shows that in all these cases subtle forces of nature conspire to prevent these motions being harnessed to send signals faster than the speed of light. The author tackles these topics both conceptually, with minimal or no mathematics,... more...
