Special Relativity and Geometry

Special Relativity and Geometry
by C. E. Harle, R. Bianconi

Number of pages: 70

This will be a book on the foundations of Special Relativity from a synthetic viewpoint. This means that we start from a few postulates on how to represent light rays and the principle of inertia and using Einstein's idea of light clocks we define the notion of measure of time and distance (and simultaneity) and introduce coordinates a posteriori.
