Number of pages: 64

Description:
The four chapters which follow are four lectures delivered before the Edinburgh Mathematical Colloquium on the subject of Relativity. As many of the audience had their chief interests in other branches of mathematical science, it was necessary to start ab initio. The best method appeared to be to treat the subject in the historical order ; the author have brought it down to the stage in which it was left by Minkowski.

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.

Book cover: Getting the Measure of Einstein's Space and TimeGetting the Measure of Einstein's Space and Time
by - University of Nevada, Las Vegas
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.

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.
