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 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.
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
