Book
)
54 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here two Russian theoretical physicists give a lighthearted presentation of the special theory of relativity. It is so simply written that the reader needs no technical knowledge beyond arithmetic. Their witty text, illustrated by a series of Russian cartoons, explains the paradoxes of relativityits funny trains, contracting rulers, and capricious clocksin a charming way
