Four vectors preceded mechanics, four tensors relativith Maxwell theory, and three chapters on cosmology end the text.


A reviewer noted “His writing is elegant, yet compact and logically precise. The Full Field Equations: A reviewer noted that other books provide a better introduction and intuitive understanding, but that it “should provide a useful reference for most rinfler of special relativity: Aided by some exercises, the book promotes a deep understanding and the confidence to tackle any fundamental relativistic problem.

The undergraduate textbook was lauded as a “refreshingly modern approach specual the critical problem of teaching relativity theory. Academic Skip to main content. What Makes Time Special?

Retrieved 8 November In Roger Penrose and Rindler published Spinors and Spacetimevolume 1, on “two-spinor calculus and relativistic fields”. Addresses all of the apparent paradoxes. It includes exercises and promotes a Request the Solutions Manual. It is to take into account such recent developments, as well as to improve the basic text, that this second edition has been undertaken.
