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.

This little book gives a remarkably readable and intelligible account of the theory of relativity. The author is presenting his material without presupposing more than elementary algebra and the elements of plane geometry.

A book for the inquisitive reader who wishes to understand the main ideas of special and general theory of relativity. Only a modest understanding of high school mathematics is required. A formal account of special relativity is given in an appendix.

This is an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand the spacetime of General Relativity.

In this contribution, the authors assess the current experimental status of Special and General Relativity. Particular emphasis is put on putative extensions of these theories and on how these could be detected experimentally.
