DYNAMICS AND RELATIVITY MCCOMB PDF

Dynamics and Relativity provides undergraduates in physics with an unusually accessible introduction to special relativity by emphasizing the connections between relativity and classical mechanics. The book begins by developing classical mechanics in a form that the author calls "Galilean Relativity," which emphasizes frames of reference. The author shows how a problem formulated in one frame of reference can then solved in another where the problem takes a simpler form. After applying this strategy to a number of classical problems, the author discusses the limitations of Galilean Relativity, particularly for handling Maxwell's equations, and then proceeds to develop Special Relativity while drawing extensively on the groundwork from the previous chapters. The book stresses conservation laws throughout and includes a final chapter that briefly outlines General Relativity. In this respect, McComb's book is unique.

The author shows how a problem formulated in one frame of reference can then solved in another where the problem takes a simpler form.

The book stresses conservation laws throughout and includes a final chapter that briefly outlines General Relativity. In this respect, McComb's book is unique. His presentation is clear, rigorous and concise without going into unneccessary mathematical complexities. The book also contains a substantial number of exercises of varying difficulty and provides their full solutions instead of simply citing the answers.

To the earnest student, this should offer a hands-on test of his understanding of the theory. Convert currency. Add to Basket. Book Description Condition: New. Seller Inventory n. More information about this seller Contact this seller. Condition: New. Language: English.

Brand new Book. Special relativity suffers from the myth that it is difficult. In order to overcome this barrier Dynamics and relativity presents an integrated treatment of classical mechanics and special relativity, by treating classical mechanics as Galilean relativity. This gives students the freedom to formulate a particular problem in one frame of reference and solve it in another, where it takes a simpler form. This strategy, which is central to specialrelativity, is applied to problems in classical mechanics, thus preparing the tools and thought patterns for a treatment of special relativity.
