PDF | 997 Pages | English
This book explains the following topics: Special Relativity, Fundamentals of General Relativity, Action principle for point particles, Observational Evidence for Black Holes, Ideal Black Holes, Schwarzschild Black Hole, Reissner-Nordstr¨om Black Hole, Tetrad Approach To General Relativity, Spinors.

 
Special Relativity by Philip Harris

PDF | 108 Pages | English
Objective of this book is to explain the principle of relativity; its importance and universal application. Topics covered includes: Background History, The Lorentz Transformations, Spacetime, Dynamics and Kinematics, Four-Vectors, Relativity and Electromagnetism.

 
Einstein's theory of relativity

Online | 322 Pages | English
The reader is assumed to have but little mathematical knowledge. Topics covered includes: Geometry and Cosmology, The Fundamental Laws of Classical Mechanics, The Newtonian World-System, The Fundamental Laws of Optics, The Fundamental Laws of Electrodynamics and Einstein's Special Principle of Relativity.

 
Special Relativity

Online | 236 Pages | English
This a textbook on special relativity, aimed at undergraduates who have already completed a freshman survey course. The treatment of electromagnetism assumes previous exposure to Maxwell's equations in integral form, but no knowledge of vector calculus. Topics covered includes:  Spacetime, Foundations, Kinematics, Dynamics, Inertia, Waves, Coordinates, Rotation, Flux and Electromagnetism.

 
Lecture Notes on General Relativity

PDF | 938 Pages | English
The aim of these lecture notes is to provide a reasonably self-contained introduction to General Relativity, including a variety of applications of the theory, ranging from the solar system to gravitational waves, black holes and cosmology. This book covers the following topics: Physics in a Gravitational Field and General Covariance, General Relativity and Geometry, Dynamics of the Gravitational Field, General Relativity and the Solar System, Black Holes, Cosmology, Varia, Kaluza-Klein Theory.

 
Lecture Notes on General Relativity by Columbia University

PDF | 139 Pages | English
This book covers the following topics: Special Relativity, Lorentzian Geometry, Introduction to General Relativity, Null Structure Equations, Applications to Null Hypersurfaces, Christodoulou’s Memory Effect, Black Holes, Lagrangian Theories and the Variational Principle, Hyperbolic Equations and Wave Propagation on Black Holes.

 
The Adventure of Physics Vol. II Relativity

PDF | 356 Pages | English
This book is written for anybody who is curious about nature and motion. Curiosity about how people, animals, things, images and empty space move leads to many adventures. This volume presents the best of them in the domains of fast, intense and distant motion: relativity and cosmology.

 
The Meaning of Relativity

PDF | 134 Pages | English
This book covers the following topics: Space and Time in Pre-Relativity Physics, The Theory of Special Relativity, The General Theory of Relativity.

 
Relativity Lecture Notes

Online | NA Pages | English
This note covers the following topics: Symmetry and Invariance, Relativistic Kinematics, Variational Calculus, Relativistic Dynamics and Particle Physics, The Equivalence Principle and General Relativity, Relativity and Electromagnetism, General Relativity and Cosmology.

 
Mechanics and Special Relativity

Online | NA Pages | English
This note covers the following topics: oscillators damped and driven and resonance (how to rock your car out of a snow bank or use a swing), an introduction to Lagrangian mechanics and optimization, symmetries and Noether's theorem, special relativity, collisions and scattering, rotational motion, angular momentum, torque, the moment of inertia tensor (dynamic balance), gravitation, planetary motion, and a quantitative introduction to some of the mind-bending ideas of modern cosmology like inflation and dark energy.

 
Understanding Special Relativity

Online | NA Pages | English
The purpose of this note is to introduce the theory of special relativity in an easily understandable way.Covered topics are: The 2 Postulates, The Relativity of Simultaneity, Length Contraction, Time Dilation, Lorentz Transformation, The Metric, The Twins Paradox, Moving faster than light?, Velocity Composition, Relativistic Dynamics and The 4-vector approach.

 
Notes on Relativistic Dynamics [PDF]
Dynamics and Relativity by David Tong

PDF | 167 Pages | English
This book covers the following topics: Newtonian Mechanics, Forces, Interlude: Dimensional Analysis, Central Forces, Systems of Particles, Non-Inertial Frames and Special Relativity.

 
The General Relativity Tutorial

Online | NA Pages | English
This note provides an informal introduction to that beautiful and amazingly accurate theory of gravity called general relativity. The goal is to explain the basic equation in this theory - Einstein's equation - with a minimum of fuss and muss.

 
Special Relativity and Geometry [PS]
