Special Relativity

Special 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 and Electromagnetism.
