Easy Lessons in Einstein
by Edwin Emery Slosson
Publisher: Brace and Howe 1920
Number of pages: 152
What is this theory of relativity and why is it so important? The mathematics of it are too much for most of us, but we can get some notion of it by a familiar illustration. A discussion of the more intelligible features of the theory of relativity, this book was originally published in 1921.

Assuming no prior knowledge by the reader, the book raises specific, hitherto overlooked questions about how time works, such as how and why anyone can be made to be, at the very same instant, simultaneous with events that are actually days apart.

We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to 3-dimensional observer's space. We focus on mathematical structures that are motivated by the physical theory.

A regular, smooth, and logically consistent introduction to the subject starting with basic facts like Coulomb law and ending with Einstein's theory of gravitation. A book for mathematics students, references to physical intuition are minimized.
