#### The Special Theory of Relativity for Mathematics Students

World Scientific Publishing Company 1990; US$ 73.00One 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 Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 35.95Based 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...

#### Special Relativity

Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 84.00Thorough and pedagogical introduction to special relativity and related topics, with companion CD-ROM. more...

#### Dynamics and Relativity

Wiley 2014; US$ 62.00A 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...

#### It's About Time

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 22.95In It's About Time , N. David Mermin asserts that relativity ought to be an important part of everyone's education--after all, it is largely about time, a subject with which all are familiar. The book reveals that some of our most intuitive notions about time are shockingly wrong, and that the real nature of time discovered by Einstein can be rigorously... more...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 18.95In these inspiring lectures David Bohm explores Albert Einstein?s celebrated Theory of Relativity that transformed forever the way we think about time and space. Yet for Bohm the implications of the theory were far more revolutionary both in scope and impact even than this. Stepping back from dense theoretical and scientific detail in this eye-opening... more...

#### Physical Relativity

Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 44.99Physical Relativity explores the nature of the distinction at the heart of Einstein's 1905 formulation of his special theory of relativity: that between kinematics and dynamics. Einstein himself became increasingly uncomfortable with this distinction, and with the limitations of what he called the 'principle theory' approach inspired by... more...

#### The Geometry of Special Relativity

CRC Press 2012; US$ 38.95"This short but remarkable book on special relativity develops the theory strictly from the geometry of hyperbolas, an approach unique within the textbook literature. ? it gives an elementary, lively introduction to the theory. ? The approximately 70 diagrams are not merely illustrations of the material given in the text of this well-thought-out representation... more...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity bound with Relativity: A Very Elementary Exposition

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 105.00The Special Theory of Relativity: Based on a short course of lectures delivered in the late 1930s, this short book presents the theory of Special Relativity by formulating a redefinition of the measurement of length, and thus will appeal to students of physics who wish to think through Einstein?s thought without the encumbrance of quasi-scientific... more...
