Summary
The book opens with a description of the smooth transition from Newtonian to Einsteinian behaviour from electrons as their energy is progressively increased, and this leads directly to the relativistic expressions for mass, momentum and energy of a particle
Table Of Contents
Departures from Newtonian dynamics -- Perplexities in the propagation of light -- Einstein and the Lorentz-Einstein transformations -- Relativity and the measurement of lengths and time intervals -- Relativistic kinematics -- Relativistic dynamics--collisions and conservation laws -- More about relativistic dynamics -- Relativity and electricity
