Special relativity (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • Special Relativityby Patricia M. Schwarz; John H. Schwarz

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 84.00

    Thorough and pedagogical introduction to special relativity and related topics, with companion CD-ROM. more...

  • Energy And Geometryby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 79.00 US$ 71.89

    Special Relativity (SR) is essentially grounded on the properties of space-time, i.e. isotropy of space and homogeneity of space and time (as a consequence of the equivalence of inertial frames) and on the Galilei principle of relativity. more...

  • A Primer of Special Relativity by P.L. Sardesai

    New Age International Pvt. Ltd., Publishers 2004; US$ 20.00

    A Primer of Special Relativity1 is an unusually lucid introduction to the subject specifically written for Indian students. It is intended to give the beginner a firm grounding for a more advanced course in relativity. An entire chapter is devoted to applications of the theory to elucidate a large number of topics the students (B.Sc. Physics) come... more...

  • Special Relativity and Motions Faster than Lightby Moses Fayngold; Roland Wengenmayr

    Wiley 2008; US$ 92.00 US$ 79.73

    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...

  • Special Relativityby U.E. Schroder; P. Roman

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 29.00 US$ 26.39

    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...

  • Relativityby Asghar Qadir

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1989; US$ 45.00 US$ 40.95

    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...

  • The Special Theory of Relativity for Mathematics Studentsby Peter Lorimer

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16

    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...

  • The Special Theory of Relativityby David Bohm

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 35.95

    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...

  • Beyond the Einstein Addition Law and its Gyroscopic Thomas Precessionby A.A. Ungar

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 137.44

    Evidence that Einstein's addition is regulated by the Thomas precession has come to light, turning the notorious Thomas precession, previously considered the ugly duckling of special relativity theory, into the beautiful swan of gyrogroup and gyrovector space theory, where it has been extended by abstraction into an automorphism generator, called the... more...

  • Dynamics and Relativityby Jeffrey Forshaw; Gavin Smith

    Wiley 2014; US$ 65.00 US$ 56.33

    A new title in the Manchester Physics Series, this introductory text emphasises physical principles behind classical mechanics and relativity. It assumes little in the way of prior knowledge, introducing relevant mathematics and carefully developing it within a physics context. Designed to provide a logical development of the subject, the book is divided... more...
