It is the purpose of this book to provide an introduction to the Special Theory of Relativity which is accessible to any student who has had an introduction to general physics and some slight acquaintance with the calculus.

The book presents ideas by Poincare and Minkowski according to which the essence and the main content of the relativity theory are the following: the space and time form a unique four-dimensional continuum supplied by the pseudo-Euclidean geometry.
This text presents special relativity from first principles and logically arrives at the conclusions using simple diagrams and some thought experiments. It is possible to understand the first part of the book using only high school algebra.
