Theory of Special Relativity
by Nadia L. Zakamska
Publisher: arXiv 2015
Number of pages: 98
Description:
The main purpose of these notes is to introduce 4-vectors and the matrix notation and to demonstrate their use in solving standard problems in Special Relativity. The pre-requisites for the class are calculus-based Classical Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism, and Linear Algebra is highly recommended.

Special Relativity
by David W. Hogg - Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics
These notes introduce undergraduates to special relativity from its founding principle to its varied consequences. The text can also serve as a reference for those of us who need to use special relativity regularly but have no long-term memory.

Relativity
by Arthur W. Conway - G. Bell & sons
The chapters which follow are lectures delivered before the Edinburgh Mathematical Colloquium on the subject of Relativity. The subject is treated in the historical order, the author brought it down to the stage in which it was left by Minkowski.
