Einstein's Theory by Oyvind Gron

Book Description

This book provides an introduction to the theory of relativity and the mathematics used in its processes. Three elements of the book make it stand apart from previously published books on the theory of relativity. First, the book starts at a lower mathematical level than standard books with tensor calculus of sufficient maturity to make it possible to give detailed calculations of relativistic predictions of practical experiments. Self-contained introductions are given, for example vector calculus, differential calculus and integrations. Second, in-between calculations have been included, making it possible for the non-technical reader to follow step-by-step calculations. Thirdly, the conceptual development is gradual and rigorous in order to provide the inexperienced reader with a philosophically satisfying understanding of the theory. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with a sound conceptual understanding of both the special and general theories of relativity, and gain an insight into how the mathematics of the theory can be utilized to calculate relativistic effects.

Kinematics by Alberto A. Martinez Kinematics by Alberto A. Martinez

The field of kinematics - the science of motion - has long been neglected and misrepresented. The author rescues the forgotten roots of this fundamental field that led to Einstein's theory of special relativity. He shows how kinematics was torn in divergent directions by various fields: mathematics, engineering, philosophy, and psychology.
