Books with the subject: Special Relativity (Physics) Up to 20 books are listed, in descending order of popularity. Why Does E=mc2?: Brian Cox, Jeff Forshaw. Info/Buy. Six Not-so-easy Pieces: Einstein's Relativity, Symmetry and Space-time Richard P Feynman, Roger Penrose. Info/Buy. The Final Theory: Rethinking Our Scientific Legacy.   The Schrödinger equation and Maxwell’s equations treat spacetime as a stage on which particles and fields act out their roles. General relativity, however, is essentially a theory of spacetime Sources in General Relativity (Part 1) - Physics LibreTexts.

The reason is that relativity had to be invented to account for the theory of electromagnetic fields and waves in particular. The two go together. Maxwell's equations are the cause of the replacement of the old physics of absolute time by the new view of time as an additional dimension.   From the very beginning relativity is kept in mind, along with its relation to concepts of basic mechanics, such as inertia, escape velocity, Newton's potential, Kepler motion and curvature. The Lagrange and Hamilton formalisms are treated in detail, and extensive applications to central forces and rigid bodies are presented.

Classical fields, particles, and the theory of relativity by William Robert Davis Download PDF EPUB FB2

This chapter explores charge particles in electromagnetic fields. In the theory of relativity, elementary particles are considered as rigid bodies whose dimensions all remain unchanged in the reference system in which they are at rest.

However, it is easy to see that the theory of relativity makes the existence of rigid bodies impossible in general. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity Classical fields Maxwell's particles field theory.

Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism/5(67). Additional Physical Format: Online version: Davis, William R.

The first field theories, Newtonian gravitation and Maxwell's equations of electromagnetic fields were developed in classical physics before the advent of relativity theory inand had to be revised to be consistent with that theory.

Consequently, classical field theories are usually categorized as non-relativistic and relativistic. Classical Mechanics: Point Particles and Relativity Walter Greiner The series of texts on Classical Theoretical Physics is based on the highly successful series of courses given by Walter Greiner at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

The discussion is restricted to the classical (non-quantum) theory in Minkowski spacetime. Particular attention has been given to conceptual aspects of field theory, accurate definitions of basic physical notions, and thorough analysis of exact solutions to the equations of motion for interacting systems.

The complete set of books will thus provide a coherent view of physics that includes, in classical physics, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, classical dyn- ics, electromagnetism, and general relativity; and in quantum physics, quantum mechanics, symmetries, relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum electro- and chromodynamics, and the.

A very nice and readable introduction to special relativity and classical field theory. These topics are combined in such a way as to take you to the doorsteps of general relativity and quantum field theory (I am eagerly awaiting Prof. Susskind's books on these topics).

This book provides a calculus-based perspective on classical mechanics and the theory of relativity. Unlike most conventional textbooks, the discussion on theory is pared down to a minimum in favor of detailed, guided solutions of problems illustrating salient points, subtleties and principles.

Classical relativity (defined initially by Galileo Galilei and refined by Sir Isaac Newton) involves a simple transformation between a moving object and an observer in another inertial frame of you are walking in a moving train, and someone stationery on the ground is watching, your speed relative to the observer will be the sum of your speed relative to the train and the train's.Geometric optics is an approximation to the quantum theory of light, and does not have a superior "classical" form.

When both quantum mechanics and classical mechanics cannot apply, such as at the quantum level with many degrees of freedom, quantum field theory (QFT) is of use.

The treatment throughout the book is relativistic; the author attempts, as much as possible, a coordinate free (or covariant) form of the equations both for particles and the fields. The book opens with an extensive discussion of space-time, Lorentz transformations, Lorentz-group and tensor and spinor : Dover Publications.
