Another book on Special relativity Who ordered that? Very special indeed.Here is a cute pictorial monograph that smoothly takes you to the very heart of the theory that shook the foundations of science a century ago. Einstein's 1905 papers on special relativity marked a turning point in our understanding of such fundamental notions a space, time, mass and energy. In an elegant sequence of easy to follow steps through a splendid series of spacetime diagrams Sander Bais gives you the thrill of discovering Einstein's sublime but extremely counter intuitive reality yourself. The chapters cover subjects like: the postulates, simultaneity, causality, contractions and dilations, and energy and momentum. Discover in a pictorial way why moving clocks run slow, why things cannot move faster then the speed of light, or why mass and energy are equivalent? A delightful journey for the curious mind, the critical student, and the teacher who wants to inspire.
