Introduction to the Relativity Principle by G. Barton

Book Description

Relativity, almost a hundred years old in its classic Einsteinian form, is one of the most fascinating threads running through science from Galileo's day to ours. This book, based on a short course at the University of Sussex, presents relativity as a natural outgrowth of dynamics: the concepts are introduced through careful physical reasoning and simple mathematics, and are then applied over a wide range, well meshed with current undergraduate syllabuses. Features An accessible introduction through pre-Einstein relativity Scrupulously assessed experimental evidence (mostly modern) Elementary mathematics, aimed at a working acquaintance with kinematics, energy and momentum conservation, and the propagation of plane waves The book includes many carefully chosen examples and student problems Introduction to the Relativity Principle is suitable for undergraduates studying physics, also as a preliminary to more formal courses designed for mathematicians.

Books By Author G. Barton

Introduction to the Relativity Principle by G. Barton Introduction to the Relativity Principle, Paperback (July 1999)

Relativity forms a core part of the physics curriculum. This introductory book offers a concise treatment of relativity, starting with Galilean transformations and the uses of relativity in Newtonian mechanics.

Physics of Chance by G. Barton Physics of Chance, Hardback (November 1992)

This is an introduction to the ideas of indeterminacy that are central to much of modern physics and have overthrown the "clockwork universe" conceptions of earlier centuries.

Quantum and Statistical Field Theory by G. Barton Quantum and Statistical Field Theory, Paperback (March 1992)

Emphasizes the underlying unity of the concepts and methods used in both phase transitions and elementary particle physics, and presents topics such as the pertubative expansion, Feynman diagrams, renormalization, and the renormalization group.

Elements of Green's Functions and Propagation by G. Barton Elements of Green's Functions and Propagation, Paperback (June 1989)

Takes the student with a background in the undergraduate courses in physics and mathematics towards the skills needed for graduate work in theoretical physics. The author uses Green's functions to explore the physics of potentials, diffusion and waves. Case histories illustrate the interplay between physical insight and mathematical formalism.
