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.

by - E.P. Dutton & Co.
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.
