∗ An accessible introduction through pre–Einstein relativity
∗ Scrupulously assessed experimental evidence (mostly modern)
∗ Elementary mathematics, aimed at a working acquaintance with kinematics, energy and momentum conservation, and the propagation of plane waves
∗ The book includes many carefully chosen examples and student problems
Introduction to the Relativity Principle is suitable for undergraduates studying physics, also as a preliminary to more formal courses designed for mathematicians.
