The theory of relativity stands out as one of the greatest achievements in science. The “special theory”,which did not include gravity,was put forward by Einstein in 1905 to explain many troubling facts that had arisen in the study of electricity and magnetism. In particular, his postulate that the speed of light in vacuum is the...
Analytic Hyperbolic Geometry And Albert Einstein's Special Theory Of Relativity This book presents a powerful way to study Einstein's special theory of relativity and its underlying hyperbolic geometry in which analogies with classical results form the right tool. It introduces the notion of vectors into analytic hyperbolic geometry, where they are called gyrovectors.
Newtonian velocity addition is the common vector...
