$\begingroup$ Relativity certainly doesn't imply that such statements have no meaning. It's probably because relativity isn't theory of relativity at all, it's a theory of invariants (already Einstein made this observation, but it was too late, the current name had caught on). Some (and actually many) things in relativity are absolute. In this book, mathematician and science writer Martin Gardner delivers a clear, conceptual overview of both special and general relativity. It is the most in-depth explanation of relativity I have read that has steered clear of heavy-duty mathematics: the most complicated equation presented, of the relationship between relative speed and time 4/5. Tensors and Special Relativity Lecture 6 1 Introduction and review of tensor algebra While you have probably used tensors of rank 1, i.e vectors, in special relativity, relativity is most efficiently expressed in terms of tensor algebra. General relativity, however, requires tensor algebra in a general curvilinear coordinate Size: 82KB.

For example, "transposition" is a. This elementary introduction pays special attention to aspects of tensor calculus and relativity that students tend to find most difficult. Its use of relatively unsophisticated mathematics in the early chapters allows readers to develop their confidence within the framework of Cartesian coordinates before undertaking the theory of tensors in curved spaces and its application to general 3/5(1).

–Cited by: It is the purpose of this book to provide an introduction to the Special Theory of Relativity which is accessible to any stu­ dent who has had an introduction to general physics and some slight acquaintance with the calculus.

Much of the material is at a level suitable for high school students who have had advanced placement in physics and. The book starts with two introductory chapters, the first of which (very) rapidly contrasts Newton’s and Einstein’s physics and the second of which functions as a quick overview of the physics of special relativity, including the derivation of the Lorentz equations from the two basic postulates of special relativity (that the laws of.

SPECIAL RELATIVITY (Einstein ) Based on two postulates: The RELATIVITY PRINCIPLE: the laws of physics are the same in all inertial frames. The CONSTANCY OF THE SPEED OF LIGHT: the speed of light, c=, km/s, is the same for all inertial observers, independent of their velocity of motion relative to the source of light.

Special Relativity is now one of the foundation blocks of physics. It is in no sense a provisional theory and is largely compatible with quantum theory; it not only led to the idea of matter waves but is the origin of quantum 'spin' and underlies the existence of the antiparticles.

Special Relativity is. Albert Einstein (–) was a renowned theoretical physicist of the 20th century, best known for his theories of special relativity and general also made important contributions to statistical mechanics, especially his treatment of Brownian motion, his resolution of the paradox of specific heats, and his connection of fluctuations and dissipation.

This book shows that even in a core cognitive domain like spatial thinking, language influences how people think, memorize and reason about spatial relations and directions.

This book offers a firsthand view on the laborious path followed by Einstein, but it is not a substitute for a textbook on the subject.

Although the final form of the theory came to use Minkowski spaces and metric tensors, it is possible to discuss SR using nothing more than high school algebra.

The way I see it all the consequences of special relativity should be derivable from the postulates in this formulation (principle of relativity, constancy of the speed of light, homogeneity of space and time), but some consequences of these postulates may not be consequences of the Lorentz transformations.

It is the purpose of this paper to bring to light the essence of the relativity of lengths and times through a closely logical analysis of the proof given by Einstein.

There is a certain amount of hand-waving and "proof by picture" in it, but after all this is a book for general readers and not a textbook. The book is too short, and more explanation and examples would certainly have been helpful.
