Special Theory Of Relativity For Mathematics Students, The

Hardback
One of the problems facing mathematics and physics is that mathematicians and physicists speak languages that the others find hard to understand. These notes take a fundamental part of physics, the special theory of relativity and describe it in terms that can be understood by mathematics students who have studied the two basic undergraduate topics, linear algebra and multivariable calculus. It gives a full description of the geometry of space-time and the foundations of the theory of electromagnetism in terms they are familiar with.
