    The relativity theory stemming from Maxwell’s equations is rightly regarded as one of the crown jewels of 20th century physics. In other words, a triumph. The legacy of Newton Another triumph, another problem. If indeed, all of physics had to be compatible with relativity, what of Newtonian gravity? It works incredibly well, yet it is. • Special Relativity, A.P. French, pub. Chapman and Hall, ISBN A “standard” text since • The Feynman Lectures on Physics, Vol. I chaps. ; Vol II sections , and chapter The classic introduction to all branches of physics; brilliant as ever! Perhaps a little demanding to begin with, but well worthFile Size: KB.

    Concise, well-written treatment of epochal theory of modern physics covers classical relativity and the relativity postulate, time dilation, the twin paradox, momentum and energy, particles of zero mass, electric and magnetic fields and forces, and more. Only high school math is needed, and abundant examples make this text ideal for self-study. 70 illustrations. edition. University Physics I: Classical Mechanics. Contributor: Gea-Banacloche. Publisher: University of Arkansas. This is a “minimalist” textbook for a first semester of university, calculus-based physics, covering classical mechanics (including one chapter on mechanical waves, but excluding fluids), plus a brief introduction to thermodynamics.

Introduction to Relativity is intended to teach physics and astronomy majors at the freshman, sophomore or upper-division levels how to think about special and general relativity in a fundamental, but accessible, way.

Designed to render any reader a "master of relativity", everything on the subject is comprehensible and derivable from first by: This simple, user-friendly introduction to relativity is ideal for a first course in the subject.

Beginning with a comprehensive but simple review of special relativity, the book creates a framework from which to launch the ideas of general by: Steve Adam's book is an excellent introduction, with some 'simple' math, to relativity.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand relativity at a satisfactory level for by: This book provides and insightful and no-nonsense introduction to Einstein's theory of General Relativity and its basic applications to Cosmology.

The text follows the author's years of experience teaching an undergraduate course on the subject. The book nicely reflects his approach of the subject/5(29). Relativity: An Introduction to Spacetime Physics - CRC Press Book Provides the essential principles and results of special relativity as required by undergraduates.

The text uses a geometric interpretation of space-time so that a general theory is seen as a natural extension of the special theory. Introduction to Relativity is intended to teach physics and astronomy majors at the freshman, sophomore or upper-division levels how to think about special and general relativity in a fundamental.

Using a "physics first" approach to the subject, renowned relativist James B. Hartle provides a fluent and accessible introduction that uses a minimum of new mathematics and is illustrated with a wealth of exciting by: In Introduction to Relativity, physics teacher and researcher Bill McGlinn explains the fundamental concepts of Einstein's special and general theories of relativity 3/5(1).

A very accessible introduction to the ideas of relativity for the layperson. This is not your definitive guide to the theory of relativity. Important concepts are glossed over and not elaborated on, so this book would serve better as an elementary introduction to the topic.

It’s not you, book, it’s me/5. This book gives an excellent introduction to the theory of special relativity. Professor Resnick presents a fundamental and unified development of the subject with unusually clear discussions of the aspects that usually trouble beginners/5.

This book is really nice. Narlikar is very lucid and simple in most of his writings. Though Riemannian geometry part isn't explained alot but that's not the point here. It's book on relativity so get your background on geometry from other books (like C.E Weatherburn or J.M Lee) if you really want it otherwise it's /5(8).

"Special Relativity: An Introduction with Problems and Solutions" by Michael Tsamparlis covers a lot of stuff and goes in depth. It can also be used as a "SR cookbook", because if you need some SR formula, you will probably find it there. If not, then you probably won't find it easily in some other SR textbook.

Introduction to Relativity is intended to teach physics and astronomy majors at the freshman, sophomore or upper-division levels how to think about special and general relativity in a fundamental, but accessible, way. Designed to render any reader a "master of relativity", everything on the subject is comprehensible and derivable from first principles.

A working knowledge of Einstein's theory of general relativity is an essential tool for every physicist today. This self-contained book is an introductory text on the subject aimed at first-year graduate students, or advanced undergraduates, in physics that assumes only a basic understanding of classical Lagrangian mechanics.

It might look a bit hokey, but it's full of fabulous insights. Wolfgang Rindler, Introduction to Special Relativity. well, there are plenty of books to choose from. My personal favourites are that of schutz and narlikar.

Relativity is the study of how different observers measure the same event. Galileo and Newton developed the first correct version of classical relativity.

Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology gives undergraduate students an overview of the fundamental ideas behind the geometric theory of gravitation and spacetime. Through pointers on how to modify and generalise Einstein's theory to enhance understanding, it provides a link between standard textbook content and current research in the field.
