Chapter 1 Introduction Syllabus • The principle of relativity; its importance and universal application. • Revision: Inertial frames and transformations between them. Newton’s laws in inertial frames. • Acquaintance with historical problems of conﬂict between electromagnetism and relativity. • Solution?: The idea of ether and attempts to detect it. General Relativity: An Introduction for Physicists provides a clear mathematical introduction to Einstein's theory of general relativity. It presents a wide range of applications of the theory, concentrating on its physical consequences. After reviewing the basic concepts, the authors present a clear and intuitive discussion of the mathematical background, including the necessary tools .
Gravity: An Introduction To General Relativity by James Hartle is reasonably good as an introduction, although in order to make the content accessible, he does skip over a lot of mathematical detail. Introduction to the Theory of Relativity book. Read reviews from world’s largest community for readers. Start by marking “Introduction to the Theory of Relativity” as Want to Read: theory (frames of reference, Lorentz transformation, relativistic mechanics of mass points, more), the general theory (principle of equivalence /5(13).
General relativity is a beautiful scheme for describing the gravitational ﬂeld and the equations it obeys. Nowadays this theory is often used as a prototype for other, more intricate constructions to describe forces between elementary particles or other branches of fundamental physics. This is why in an introduction to general relativity it is of. Albert Einstein 5 Preface (December, ) The present book is intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a .

Introduction to the Relativity Principle is suitable for undergraduates studying physics, also as a preliminary to more formal courses designed for mathematicians. From the Back Cover 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 by: Introduction to the theory of relativity and the principles of modern physics (A Blaisdell book in the pure and applied sciences) Hardcover – January 1, by Price: $ 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.
This book covers the following topics: Special Relativity, Lorentzian Geometry, Introduction to General Relativity, Null Structure Equations, Applications to Null Hypersurfaces, Christodoulou’s Memory Effect, Black Holes, Lagrangian Theories and the Variational Principle, Hyperbolic Equations and Wave Propagation on Black Holes.
Introduction to Relativity is intended to teach physics and astronomy majors at the freshman, sophomore or upper-division levels how to think about special and general relativity in a fundamental, but accessible, way. Buy Introduction to the Relativity Principle: Particles and Plane Waves by G.

He describes the basic 3/5(1). Introduction to Relativity is intended to teach physics and astronomy majors at the freshman, sophomore or upper-division levels how to think about special and general relativity.
Spacetime and Geometry is an introductory textbook on general relativity, specifically aimed at students. Using a lucid style, Carroll first covers the foundations of the theory and mathematical formalism, providing an approachable introduction to what can often be an intimidating subject.
The special principle of relativity was first explicitly enunciated by Galileo Galilei in in his Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, using the metaphor of Galileo's ship.
Newtonian mechanics added to the special principle several other concepts, including laws of motion, gravitation, and an assertion of an absolute time. The book begins by reviewing Newtonian mechanics and Newtonian gravity with the Lagrangian formalism and the principle of least action, and then moves to special and general relativity.
Most calculations are presented step by step, as is done on the board in class. This book is one of the first introductions to the theory of relativity that has the endorsement of the discoverer of the theory. Albert Einstein was alive when the book was first published, and writes the foreward to the by: Basic principle of special relativity: for two observers moving relative to each other with constant relative velocity (more specifically: for two inertial observers) the laws of physics are the is no key experiment by which one could argue that one of the observers is “at rest” in an absolute sense – as far as physics is concerned, all such observers are equal, no one has.
