Classical Electrodynamics and Theory of Relativity
by Ruslan Sharipov
Publisher: Samizdat Press 2003
Number of pages: 163
This book is a manual for the course of electrodynamics and theory of relativity. It is recommended primarily for students of mathematical departments. This defines its style: the author uses elements of vectorial and tensorial analysis, differential geometry, and theory of distributions in it.

Concise and practical, this text sketches the mathematical background essential to understanding the fundamentals of relativity theory. Subjects include the velocity of light, measurement of time and distance, and properties of mass and momentum.
by Albert Einstein - Princeton University Press
A condensed unified presentation intended for one who has already digested the mechanics of tensor theory and physical basis of relativity. Einstein's little book serves as an excellent tying-together of loose ends and as a survey of the subject.

In this book we will survey various alternative approaches to the problem of gravitation pursued around the turn of the last century and try to assess their potential for integrating the contemporary knowledge of gravitation.
