Relativity has much to offer for a well-rounded education. Yet books on relativity either assume a strong background in physics and math, aimed at advanced physics students, or, alternatively, offer a broad description with little intellectual challenge. This book bridges the gap. It aims at readers with essentially no physics or math background, who still find it rewarding to think . Introducing basic physics and fluid engineering topics through the mathematical methods of dimensional analysis, this book is perfect for students in physics, engineering and mathematics. Explaining potentially unfamiliar concepts such as viscosity and diffusivity, the text includes worked examples and end-of-chapter problems with answers.

Published in the s, this book replaced the outdated and fragmented treatises and supplements typically assigned to beginning graduate students as a modern text on classical mechanics with exercises and examples demonstrating the link between this and other branches of physics, including acoustics, electrodynamics, thermodynamics, geometric Author: Herbert Goldstein. This book presents the theory of relativity for students of physics and mathematics who have had no previous introduction to the subject and whose mathematical training does not go beyond the fields which are necessary for studying classical theoretical physics. Systematic and logically complete, the book develops the basic ideas of the theory.

And bonus: They're a little cheaper than the "world's first physics textbook" that just sold $K. An associate professor of physics and astronomy at Union College in Schenectady, New York, Orzel takes an entertaining approach to distilling complex scientific ideas for his students and for a general audience (hey, that’s you and me). In this concise and self-contained book based on his online Yale course, Shankar explains the fundamental concepts of physics from Galileo’s and Newton’s discoveries to the twentieth-century’s revolutionary ideas on relativity and quantum mechanics. The book begins at the simplest level, develops the basics, and reinforces fundamentals.

Foundations of Tensor Analysis for Students of Physics and Engineering with an Introduction to the Theory of Relativity (Paperback or Softback) by Nasa Technical Reports Server (Ntrs) and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at This particular book starts with basic concepts useful in physics and relativity.

This is a ball. It has mass (physics concept). More and less (basics). Flat space (a grid) versus curved space (think a grid painted on a trampoline with a bowling ball rolling on it).

A small ball curves it less. A larger ball curves it more/5(). 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 : Cosimo Bambi.

Thanks for A2A. At school, I had first used Richard P. Feynman’s Lectures on Physics; chapter 15 onwards which can be accessed here. Once this was done; and I was blessed to have a very eminent retired Particle-Physicist, Dr. Pradeep K. Ghosh as m.

Martin, General Relativity: A First Course For Physicists. The theory of relativity is amazing and important. The Aim of this book is to introduce people without a strong physics (or even scientific) background to the Special and General Theories of relativity and now I want to read other similar Scientific books/5.

I would recommend two books. For a fun, easy non-mathematical read that will give you an intuitive grasp of special relativity, I would recommend Mr.

Tompkins in Wonderland by George Gamow. Written in the late ’s, it explores the life of Mr. This book especially explores the six major areas of classical physics that all physics students should expose.

The major six areas are (1) Statistical Physics, (2) Optics, (3) Elastodynamics, (4) Fluid Mechanics, (5) Plasma Physics, (6) Special & General Relativity and Cosmology.

BSc Sem V & VI Recommended Text-Books. Quantum Mechanics, Special Theory of Relativity & Electromagnetic waves comes under the first book. On the other hand, Atomic/Molecular Physics & Subatomic Physics covers the second book of BSc 3rd year. Last but not least the third book covers Basic Electronic & Analog/Digital of the best.

HE present book is intended, as far as pos-sible, to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus 1 of theoretical physics.

The work presumes a. This book is an introduction to the theories of Special and General Relativity. The target audience are physicists, engineers and applied scientists who are looking for an understandable introduction to the topic - without too much new mathematics.

The description of special relativity in Einstein’s book is pleasurable and easy to read. I can imagine students in my special relativity course reading Einstein’s description and taking away a better understanding of the subject.

As to whether the general public can understand the work, I think Einstein’s own recommendation says it best: “The work presumes a standard of Author: Nelson Christensen. This book presents an alternative representation of Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, which makes Special Relativity much more comprehensible and is intended as a lecture for physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists and concentrates on the students of these fieldsBrand: Springer Singapore.

There is an old book by Max Born, called Einstein's Theory of Relativity which explains the Special Relativity in great detail without any advanced mathematics and a little bit of General Relativity.

It is suitable for those who has not yet started to physics degree or will not, but would like to understand the theory in a deeper and mathematical manner. Gravity: An Introduction to Einstein's General Relativity, by James B.

Hartle, Addison-Wesley, This book labels itself as a discussion of the physically relevant solutions of the Einstein equation, without first presenting derivations or too-sophisticated mathematics, as a course for junior- or senior-level physics students.

Relativity is a book all about the different relationships within a family: those between husbands and wives, fathers and adult sons, parents and young children. "But Ethan gave the vagueness of her life definition.

And although Claire complained about his clothes and Lego scattered about the house, she needed them there to punctuate her existence/5. Relativity For Physics Students by G. Jeffery. Publisher: Methuen & Company Number of pages: Description: Contents: The origins of the theory; Michelson-Morley experiment and the Lorentz transformation; Laws of motion and electro-magnetism; Restricted principle of relativity and some consequences; Equivalence hypothesis; Four-dimensional continuum.

This book introduces the theory of special and general relativity with the Lagrangian formalism and the Least Action Principle, reviews Newtonian mechanics and gravity, covers recent advances in gravitational wave astronomy and provides a general overview of current lines of research in gravityBrand: Springer Singapore.

In Mechanics and Relativity, the reader is taken on a tour through time and space. Starting from the basic axioms formulated by Newton and Einstein, the theory of motion at both the everyday and the highly relativistic level is developed without the need of prior knowledge. The relevant mathematics is provided in an appendix.

The text contains various worked examples and a Author: Timon Idema.Full text of "Relativity For Physics Students" See other formats DAMAGE BOOK W > u.Topics that deserve more attention include gravitational radiation and cosmology.

However, this book can be supplemented by those by Misner, Thorne, and Wheeler, and by Weinberg. Smolin was teaching a course on general relativity to undergraduates as well as graduate students at Yale University using this book and felt satisfied with the Author: Robert Wald.
