This book explains the
following topics: Space, Time, and Newtonian Physics, Maxwell, E and M, and the
Ether, Einstein and Inertial Frames, Minkowskian Geometry, Accelerating
Reference Frames, Dynamics, Relativity and the Gravitational Field, General
Relativity and Curved Spacetime, Black Hole, Cosmology.
This note covers the
following topics: Principle of Relativity, Lorentz transform, Simultaneous
events, causally connected events, Addition of velocities, 4-vectors: velocity,
energy-momentum, Energy-momentum of photon, Doppler effect, aberration,
Relativistic dynamics, Electromagnetic fields in different frames.
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.
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
This book covers the following topics: Special Relativity,
Lorentzian Geometry, Introduction to General Relativity, Null Structure
Equations, Applications to Null Hypersurfaces, Christodoulouís Memory Effect,
Black Holes, Lagrangian Theories and the Variational Principle, Hyperbolic
Equations and Wave Propagation on Black Holes.
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.
