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.
