Based on his successful work "Special Relativity and Motions Faster than Light", Moses Fayngold has written a thorough presentation of the special theory of relativity. The unique feature of the textbook is its two–leveled structure helping students to master the material more effectively: the first level presents a qualitative discussion of a problem while the second one contains its rigorous treatment. Fayngold points out the connection between fundamental principles and known phenomena. In three new chapters on ′Relativity at Work′ (Electromagnetism, Optics, Quantum Mechanics), he not only shows what relativity is, but also how it works. the scope of new material extends to include a chapter on Causality and Applied relativity, including astrophysical and accelerator topics. Backed throughout by numerous examples and exercises.
