Relativity, almost a hundred years old in its classic Einsteinian form, is one of the most fascinating threads running through science from Galileo's day to ours. This book, based on a short course at the University of Sussex, presents relativity as a natural outgrowth of dynamics: the concepts are introduced through careful physical reasoning and simple mathematics, and are then applied over a wide range, well meshed with current undergraduate syllabuses.Features* 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 problemsIntroduction to the Relativity Principle is suitable for undergraduates studying physics, also a preliminary to more formal courses designed for mathematicians.

From the principle of relativity alone without assuming the constancy of the speed of light (i.e., using the isotropy of space and the symmetry implied by the principle of special relativity) it can be shown that the spacetime transformations between inertial frames are either Euclidean, Galilean, or Lorentzian. In the Lorentzian case, one can then obtain relativistic interval conservation and ...
12 AN INTRODUCTION TO THE SPECIAL THEORY OF RELATIVITY projectile motion, Galileo (1564-1642) concluded that the motion of a projectile launched from the ground at an arbitrary angle could be derived from the motion of a projectile launched straight up.
