Special relativity (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • Energy And Geometryby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    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...

  • Deformed Spacetimeby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    Springer 2007; US$ 249.00

    This volume provides a detailed discussion of the mathematical aspects and the physical applications of a new geometrical structure of space-time, based on a generalization ("deformation") of the usual Minkowski space, as supposed to be endowed with a metric whose coefficients depend on the energy. Such a formalism (Deformed Special 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$ 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...

  • Special Relativityby Domenico Giulini

    Oxford University Press 2005; US$ 16.99

    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...

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

    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...

  • Relativityby Asghar Qadir

    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...

  • The Special Theory of Relativity for Mathematics Studentsby Peter Lorimer

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 73.00

    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...
