but the usual introductory books on special relativity don’t address this subject. Having given up trying to persuade the students to buy the book, I have decided to bite the bullet and type up some notes relevant for the whole course. However, the notes are intended to complement the book and I still recommend its purchase. List of changes. Lecture Notes On Special Relativity by J. D. Cresser.

The basic concept of the book is to cover special relativity and electromagnetism together, getting to the point of understanding the behavior of electric and magnetic fields under Lorentz transformations, and the Lorentz invariance properties of Maxwell’s equation.

Print Book & E-Book. ISBNBook Edition: 1. This chapter is concerned with the Special Theory of Relativity, which dates from In Einstein published an additional theory, called the General Theory of Relativity.

This latter theory deals with the extension of the Special Theory to the case of the law of gravitation; we. General relativity is the geometric theory of gravitation published by Albert Einstein in and the current description of gravitation in modern physics. General relativity generalises special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime.

In that respect it is linked to an online repository with more than problems, carefully classified according to subject area and solved in detail, providing an independent problem book on Special.

The general theory of relativity, together with the necessary parts of the theory of invariants, is dealt with in the author’s book Die Grundlagen der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie (The Foundations of the General Theory of Relativity) — Joh.

Topics include Einstein's postulates, the Lorentz transformation, relativistic effects and paradoxes, and applications involving electromagnetism and particle physics. This course also provides a brief introduction to some concepts of general relativity, including the principle.
