The most thread operating via this a little unorthodox method of the distinctive thought of relativity is the Pythagorean theorem. apparently in its most simple geometric shape within the very starting of this monograph. Then it reappears in algebraic apparel, is extra transformed and at last reinterpreted to play the function of 1 of the most characters within the exact thought of relativity.
The first 4 chapters are simply obtainable to school sophmores or juniors. the remainder a part of the booklet could be a little tough for college students who by no means studied physics, even though the writer really employs simply the idea of impression and presupposes no historical past in physics. through the vector geometry brought past, he leads the reader from the effect dialog legislation to the recognized formulation e=mc2.
