Описание: Relativity: The Special and the General Theory began as a short paper and was eventually published as a book written by Albert Einstein with the aim of giving an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those who, from a scientific point of view, are interested in the theory, but not conversant with the math of theoretical physics.

Описание: 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. He includes, for example, a section on the common sense of relativity.

Описание: The book expounds the major topics in the special theory of relativity. It provides a detailed examination of the mathematical foundation of the special theory of relativity, relativistic mass, relativistic mechanics and relativistic electrodynamics.
Описание: This book provides a concise introduction to both the special theory of relativity and the general theory of relativity. The format is chosen to provide the basis for a single semester course which can take the students all the way from the foundations of special relativity to the core results of general relativity: the Einstein equation and the equations of motion for particles and light in curved spacetime. To facilitate access to the topics of special and general relativity for science and engineering students without prior training in relativity or geometry, the relevant geometric notions are also introduced and developed from the ground up. Students in physics, mathematics or engineering with an interest to learn Einstein's theories of relativity should be able to use this book already in the second semester of their third year. The book could also be used as the basis of a graduate level introduction to relativity for students who did not learn relativity as part of their undergraduate training.
Описание: Quantum gravity is among the most fascinating problems in physics. It modifies our understanding of time, space and matter. The recent development of the loop approach has allowed us to explore domains ranging from black hole thermodynamics to the early Universe. This book provides readers with a simple introduction to loop quantum gravity, centred on its covariant approach. It focuses on the physical and conceptual aspects of the problem and includes the background material needed to enter this lively domain of research, making it ideal for researchers and graduate students. Topics covered include quanta of space; classical and quantum physics without time; tetrad formalism; Holst action; lattice QCD; Regge calculus; ADM and Ashtekar variables; Ponzano-Regge and Turaev-Viro amplitudes; kinematics and dynamics of 4D Lorentzian quantum gravity; spectrum of area and volume; coherent states; classical limit; matter couplings; graviton propagator; spinfoam cosmology and black hole thermodynamics.

Описание: Based on his successful work Special Relativity and Motions Faster than Light (2002), Moses Fayngold is proposing to write a textbook which will be a thorough presentation of the Special Theory of Relativity. The unique feature of this textbook is its two-leveled structure: the first level presents a qualitative discussion of a problem, while the second one contains its rigorous treatment. Fayngold points out the connection between fundamental principles and known phenomena. In three new chapters on 'Relativity at Work' (Electromagnetism, Optics, Quantum Mechanics), the author not only shows what Relativity is, but how it actually works. The scope of new material extends to include a chapter on Causality (ch. 7) and on Applied Relativity (ch. 13), including astrophysical and accelerator topics. For the students and teaching faculty, each chapter will be provided with problems, while their solutions will be collected in a separate manual for the instructors. The scope of presented material, the practical applications, and the numerous problems as well as the examples throughout the text will make the book extremely useful as a textbook for a one-semester course in special relativity in any college curriculum. It will also be interesting for professional physicists working in any area other than relativity, for electrical engineers and astrophysicists.
Описание: This modern introduction to particle physics equips students with the skills needed to develop a deep and intuitive understanding of the physical theory underpinning contemporary experimental results. The fundamental tools of particle physics are introduced and accompanied by historical profiles charting the development of the field. Theory and experiment are closely linked, with descriptions of experimental techniques used at CERN accompanied by detail on the physics of the Large Hadron Collider and the strong and weak forces that dominate proton collisions. Recent experimental results are featured, including the discovery of the Higgs boson. Equations are supported by physical interpretations, and end-of-chapter problems are based on datasets from a range of particle physics experiments including dark matter, neutrino, and collider experiments. A solutions manual for instructors is available online. Additional features include worked examples throughout, a detailed glossary of key terms, appendices covering essential background material, and extensive references and further reading to aid self-study, making this an invaluable resource for advanced undergraduates in physics.
Описание: It is well known that the equation E = mc comes from the Theory of Relativity. But hardly anyone knows that there is also a simple proof for this relation which Einstein himself derived from the laws of Classical Physics. This was the first step on the direct path to the Theory of Relativity. Now this path, ignored for more than a hundred years, has been followed up. It turns out that the Equivalence Principle Energy-Mass E = mc , in conjunction with Newton's Second Law of Dynamics, provides an easily comprehensible approach to Relativistic Mechanics. The study "Newton and Relativity" shows the amazing results of this investigation. The authors: Dr. Ing. Francesco Cester Dr. rer. nat. Manfred Clemente Dr. rer. nat.
