Classical Electrodynamics and Theory of Relativity
by Ruslan Sharipov
Publisher: Samizdat Press 2003
Number of pages: 163
This book is a manual for the course of electrodynamics and theory of relativity. It is recommended primarily for students of mathematical departments. This defines its style: the author uses elements of vectorial and tensorial analysis, differential geometry, and theory of distributions in it.

We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to 3-dimensional observer's space. We focus on mathematical structures that are motivated by the physical theory.

This textbook is a nonmathematical presentation of Einstein's theories of special and general relativity, including a brief treatment of cosmology. It is a set of lecture notes for the author's course Relativity for Poets at Fullerton College.

Contents: The origins of the theory; Michelson-Morley experiment and the Lorentz transformation; Laws of motion and electro-magnetism; Restricted principle of relativity and some consequences; Equivalence hypothesis; Four-dimensional continuum; etc.
This book examines the evolution of the principle of relativity in its classical, special, and general incarnations, with the aim of showing how it has repeatedly inspired advances in our understanding of the physical world.
