At the end of the 19th century light was regarded as an electromagnetic wave propagating in a material medium called ether. The speed c appearing in Maxwell's wave equations was the speed of light with respect to the ether...

This is a book on the foundations of Special Relativity from a synthetic viewpoint. The book has a strong visual appeal, modeling with affine geometry. As a subproduct we develop several programs to visualize relativistic motions.

The space and time introduced by Albert Einstein is explained by examining a series of simple thought or 'gedanken' experiments. The development makes extensive use of spacetime diagrams to help readers appreciate the full extent of these changes.

The premise of this book is that the effects of the special theory of relativity are a kinematical perspective rather than being real; but 'reality' is a slippery concept, and it is expected that the reader will keep that in mind.
