Analytic hyperbolic geometry and Albert Einstein's special theory of relativity

Author: Abraham A Ungar
Publisher: Singapore ; Hackensack, NJ : World Scientific, ©2008.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"This book presents a powerful way to study Einstein's special theory of relativity and its underlying hyperbolic geometry in which analogies with classical results form the right tool. It introduces the notion of vectors into analytic hyperbolic geometry, where they are called gyrovectors." "The discovery of the relativistic center of mass in this book thus demonstrates once again the usefulness of the study of  Read more...
