Geometry of Minkowski Space-Time (SpringerBriefs in Physics) by Francesco Catoni,Dino Boccaletti,Roberto Cannata,Vincenzo

By Francesco Catoni,Dino Boccaletti,Roberto Cannata,Vincenzo Catoni,Paolo Zampetti

This booklet offers an unique advent to the geometry of Minkowski space-time. 100 years after the space-time formula of particular relativity by means of Hermann Minkowski, it's proven that the kinematical results of specified relativity are in simple terms a manifestation of space-time geometry.

The ebook is written with the purpose of delivering scholars (and academics) of the 1st years of collage classes with a device that is effortless to be utilized and permits the answer of any challenge of relativistic kinematics even as. The e-book treats in a rigorous means, yet utilizing a non-sophisticated arithmetic, the Kinematics of targeted Relativity. for example, the recognized "Twin Paradox" is totally solved for all types of motions.

The novelty of the presentation during this booklet is composed within the large use of hyperbolic numbers, the easiest extension of advanced numbers, for an entire formalization of the kinematics within the Minkowski space-time.

Moreover, from this formalization the certainty of gravity comes as a manifestation of curvature of space-time, suggesting new learn fields.
