Rezensionen
From the reviews of the first edition: This attractive book provides an account of the theory of special relativity from a geometrical viewpoint, explaining the unification and insights that are given by such a treatment...Can be read with profit by all who have taken a first course in relativity physics. --ASLIB Book Guide "This in an interesting monograph. The author emphasizes the geometry aspects of special relativity, accenting the absolutes ... . This book works best as an introduction to special relativity for well-prepared senior undergraduates and first-year's graduate students. ... There are excellent examples and a plethora of new and stimulating problems for students to work." (B. DeFacio, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 43 (4), 2002) "As the title indicates, the book under review presents the geometrical formulation of special relativistic physics. ... Each chapter is supplemented by exercises that enable students to test their understanding of Minkowskian geometry and its application to physics. I would recommend this book as an introduction to the geometrical formulation of special relativistic physics." (Peter R. Law, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2002 d)
