Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory
The Theoretical Minimum
Leonard Susskind, Art Friedman
A funny, insightful, and self-contained guide to Einstein's relativity theory and classical field theories--including electromagnetism
Physicist Leonard Susskind and data engineer Art Friedman are back. This time, they introduce readers to Einstein's special relativity and Maxwell's classical field theory. Using their typical brand of real math, enlightening drawings, and humor, Susskind and Friedman walk us through the complexities of waves, forces, and particles by exploring special relativity and electromagnetism. It's a must-read for both devotees of the series and any armchair physicist who wants to improve their knowledge of physics' deepest truths.
