The Landscape of Theoretical Physics
by Matej Pavsic
Publisher: arXiv 2006
Number of pages: 386
This a book is for those who would like to learn something about special and general relativity beyond the usual textbooks, about quantum field theory, the elegant Fock-Schwinger-Stueckelberg proper time formalism, the elegant description of geometry by means of Clifford algebra, about the fascinating possibilities the latter algebra offers in reformulating the existing physical theories, and quantizing them in a natural way.

A book for the inquisitive reader who wishes to understand the main ideas of special and general theory of relativity. Only a modest understanding of high school mathematics is required. A formal account of special relativity is given in an appendix.

Which geometries on a smooth manifold can serve as a spacetime structure? This question is comprehensively addressed from first principles, exploring the kinematics and gravitational dynamics of all tensorial geometries on a smooth manifold.

The first six lectures are devoted to Special Relativity, and the remaining ones to Einstein's General Relativity and Gravitation Theory and to relativistic Electromagnetism. Due attention is given to the critically conceptual side of the subject.

This book goes back to the work of the philosophers and astronomers of two thousand years ago; and it extends to that of Einstein, whose work laid the foundations for our present-day ideas about the nature of space itself.
