Special relativity (Physics)

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

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 105.00

    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...

  • Dynamics and Relativityby Jeffrey Forshaw; Gavin Smith

    Wiley 2014; US$ 176.00

    ? Dynamics and Relativity by Forshaw and Smith was the ideal book for the upper level course Physics from Newton to Einstein at Yale since it was thoroughly modern and extremely lucid. Its most admirable features are the countless solved examples that made it ideal for self-study and a very detailed and lucid introduction to relativity.? ? Ramamurti... 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...

  • The Geometry of Special Relativityby Tevian Dray

    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...

  • It's About Timeby N. David Mermin

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 22.95

    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...

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

    Wiley 2008; US$ 89.00

    Moses Fayngold is Special Lecturer at the Physics Department of the New Jersey Institute of Technology, where he is also involved in the research activities of the Multi-Disciplinary Optical Science and Engineering Program. He has been lecturing for some 20 years on special relativity, both to non-specialized audiences in public planetariums as well... 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...

  • Physical Relativityby Harvey R. Brown

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 44.99

    Physical 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...

  • 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...
