The Light Cone: an illuminating introduction to relativity

Publisher: Syracuse University

Description:
These documents comprise an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand "Spacetime", the spacetime of General Relativity.
