Publisher: G. Bell & sons

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.
