This book concentrates on presenting the theory of special relativity as the geometry of space-time. The presentation is straightforward, complete and reader-friendly, with explanatory asides, that give historical con­text and links with other branches of physics and mathemat­ics. The first four chapters give a complete description of the special theory and the nature of space and time, with the minimum use of mathematics. The mathematics necessary is introduced in the following five chapters, with the final fifteen chapters devoted to a comprehensive and detailed exposition of Einstein’s special relativity.



Dennis Morris has spent over two decades researching the nature of empty space and time. He is at the forefront of this area of theoretical physics. He is also the author of works on finite group spaces and higher dimensional algebras of those spaces.
