This elementary introduction pays special attention to aspects of tensor calculus and relativity that students tend to find most difficult. Its use of relatively unsophisticated mathematics in the early chapters allows readers to develop their confidence within the framework of Cartesian coordinates before undertaking the theory of tensors in curved spaces and its application to general 3/5(1).

I am searching for a book that describes with depth the history of physics from Galileo, Newton, etc. to Einstein, especially the formulation of the principle of relativity and the laws of motion. Most of the treatments of the subject I am aware of (mainly internet sites), do not point out the. Ponderous means slow, clumsy because of great weight. Dull, laborious, or solemn. His footsteps up the staircase were heavy and ponderous.

This Book had the promise of providing simple explanations of the science and issues related to Nuclear Energy from a prize-winning author. It follows on from a successful title with the same idea, providing a "serious but not ponderous book about " the earlier one being on Relativity.1/5(1).

The book is really serious and non-ponderous, as advertised. It differs from many popular books on special relativity in two respects: 1.

The relativistic effects are presented in the book as absolutely real phenomena, which can't be interpreted or understood as seeming or invented by theorists/5(2).

Is there anything new in "A serious but not ponderous book about Relativity?" Of course not. Special Relativity, at least as far as the non-specialist reader is concerned, is a well travelled subject.

Martin, General Relativity: A First Course For Physicists. Reprint of First English Edition. First English translation of Einstein's theory of relativity.

In this work Einstein intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general and scientific philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of /5().

Einstein's theory of relativity. The reader is assumed to have but little mathematical knowledge. Topics covered includes: Geometry and Cosmology, The Fundamental Laws of Classical Mechanics, The Newtonian World-System, The Fundamental Laws of Optics, The Fundamental Laws of Electrodynamics and Einstein's Special Principle of Relativity.

Mechanics and Special Relativity. This note covers the following topics: oscillators damped and driven and resonance (how to rock your car out of a snow bank or use a swing), an introduction to Lagrangian mechanics and optimization, symmetries and Noether's theorem, special relativity, collisions and scattering, rotational motion, angular momentum, torque, the moment of inertia tensor (dynamic.

Most of them are pretty elderly. Taylor and Wheeler is good, but not all that mathematical. It is designed for people who have had intro physics only. Still, it is a good reference. Rindler is the classic (Intro to Special Relativity). Most modern. 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.
