Special Theory of Relativity is considered as one of the major revolutions of the twentieth century, the second one being the ?quantum theory? Roger Penrose wrote: ?Albert Einstein had such extraordinary deep perceptions of the workings of Nature that he laid foundation stones for both of these twentieth century revolutions in the single year of 1905.? Since Einstein is considered as one of the supreme intellects of all time, in Chapter 1 I have given his brief life sketch. In the following chapters, I have tried to explain (in an easy-to-understand manner) the basic physics and the fascinating consequences of the Special Theory of Relativity. Contents: Chapter 1: Albert Einstein: A Brief Life Sketch and his Numerous Contribution ? Chapter 2: Time Dilation and Length Contraction : Introduction ? Speed of light for a moving source ? Time dilation ? The Mu-meson experiment ? The length contraction ? Understanding the Mu-meson experiment via length contraction ? Length contraction of a moving train ? Simaltaneity of two events ? The twin paradox ? The Michelson morley experiment ? Brief historical remarks ? Problems ? Reference ? Chapter 3: The Mass-Energy Relation : Introduction ? The mass-energy relation ? The Doppler shift ? Problems ? References ? Chapter 4: Lorentz Tranformations : Introduction ? The lorentz transformations ? Transformation laws for the components of the momentum vector ? Addition of velocities ? Problems ? Appendix A : Equations describing galilean tranformation ? Appendix B: Invariance of the wave equation under lorentz transformation ?

Buchbeschreibung Springer-Verlag Gmbh Jun 2013, 2013. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - 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 fundamental equations of Einstein's theory of Special and General Relativity are derived using matrix calculus, without the help of tensors. This feature makes the book special and a valuable tool for scientists and engineers with no experience in the field of tensor calculus. In part I the foundations of Special Relativity are developed, part II describes the structure and principle of General Relativity. Part III explains the Schwarzschild solution of spherical body gravity and examines the 'Black Hole' phenomenon. Any necessary mathematical tools are user friendly provided, either directly in the text or in the appendices. 194 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9783642357978
