Dynamics and Relativity available in Paperback. Add to Wishlist. Sign in to Purchase Instantly. Temporarily Out of Stock Online Please check back later for updated availability. Overview Dynamics and Relativity provides undergraduates in physics with an unusually accessible introduction to special relativity by emphasizing the connections between relativity and classical mechanics.

The book begins by developing classical mechanics in a form that the author calls "Galilean Relativity," which emphasizes frames of reference. The author shows how a problem formulated in one frame of reference can then solved in another where the problem takes a simpler form. After applying this strategy to a number of classical problems, the author discusses the limitations of Galilean Relativity, particularly for handling Maxwell's equations, and then proceeds to develop Special Relativity while drawing extensively on the groundwork from the previous chapters.

The book stresses conservation laws throughout and includes a final chapter that briefly outlines General Relativity. Product Details Table of Contents. Table of Contents 1. Galilean relativity 2. Conservation laws 3. Central forces 4. Mechanical vibrations and waves 5. Systems of N particles 6.

His presentation is clear, rigorous and concise without going into unneccessary mathematical complexities.

Dynamics and Relativity

As a global organisation, we, like many others, recognize the significant threat posed by the coronavirus. During this time, we have made some of our learning resources freely accessible. Our distribution centres are open and orders can be placed online. Do be advised that shipments may be delayed due to extra safety precautions implemented at our centres and delays with local shipping carriers. Special relativity suffers from the myth that it is difficult.
