Special relativity (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • It's About Timeby N. David Mermin

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 24.95 US$ 19.96

    In 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 Relativityby David Bohm

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 18.95

    In 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 Relativityby Harvey R. Brown

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 46.99 US$ 40.41

    It is not widely known that Einstein had doubts, increasing with time, about the way he formulated his special theory of relativity in 1905. Physical Relativity examines the grounds of these doubts and related misgivings on the part of a handful of physicists and philosophers in the course of the twentieth century. Harvey Brown defends an interpretation... more...

  • Special Relativity: A First Encounterby Domenico Giulini

    OUP Oxford 2011; US$ 13.99 US$ 12.03

    Special relativity provides the foundations of our understanding of space and time. Without it, our understanding of the world and its place in the universe would be unthinkable. This book gives a gentle and fully self-contained introduction to the subject, and covers the most recent experimental developments. more...

  • The Geometry of Special Relativityby Tevian Dray

    CRC Press 2012; US$ 43.95

    The Geometry of Special Relativity provides an introduction to special relativity that encourages readers to see beyond the formulas to the deeper geometric structure. The text treats the geometry of hyperbolas as the key to understanding special relativity. This approach replaces the ubiquitous ? symbol of most standard treatments with the appropriate... more...

  • Grundkurs Theoretische Physik 4by Wolfgang Nolting

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 44.99

    Der beliebte Grundkurs Theoretische Physik deckt in sieben Bänden alle für das Diplom und Bachelor/Master-Studiengänge maßgeblichen Gebiete ab. Jeder Band vermittelt gut durchdacht das im jeweiligen Semester nötige theoretische-physikalische Rüstzeug. Zahlreiche Übungsaufgaben mit ausführlichen Lösungen dienen der Vertiefung des Stoffes. Die vorliegende... more...

  • The Geometry of Special Relativity - a Concise Courseby Norbert Dragon

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 49.95

    In this concise primer it is shown that, with simple diagrams, the phenomena of time dilatation, length contraction and Lorentz transformations can be deduced from the fact that in a vacuum one cannot distinguish physically straight and uniform motion from rest, and that the speed of light does not depend on the speed of either the source or the observer.... more...

  • The Special Theory of Relativity bound with Relativity: A Very Elementary Expositionby Herbert Dingle; Sir Oliver Lodge

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 47.95

    The 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...

  • Deformed Spacetimeby Fabio Cardone; Roberto Mignani

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 209.00

    This volume provides a detailed discussion of the mathematical aspects and 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. This new five-dimensional scheme (Deformed Relativity... more...
