Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory (Theoretical by Leonard Susskind and Art Friedman

By Leonard Susskind and Art Friedman

In the 1st books in his wildly renowned The Theoretical Minimum sequence, world-class physicist Leonard Susskind supplied a super first direction in classical and quantum mechanics, providing readers no longer an oversimplified creation, however the genuine factor - every thing you want to commence doing physics, and not anything extra. Now, fortunately, Susskind and his former pupil paintings Friedman are again, this time to introduce readers to important relativity and classical box conception. finally, waves, forces and debris can be demystified.

Using their usual model of quite uncomplicated maths, enlightening sketches and an analogous fictional opposite numbers, artwork and Lenny, Special Relativity and Classical box conception takes us on an enlightening trip via a global now ruled by means of the legislation of precise relativity. beginning of their new watering gap, Hermann's Hideaway, with a lesson on relativity, paintings and Lenny stroll us in the course of the complexities of Einstein's recognized thought.

Combining rigor with humour, Susskind and Friedman make sure that Special Relativity and Classical box conception will develop into a part of the reader's physics toolbox.
