Covering special and general relativity, this book presents the basics of the theories and considers their implications. The theories are presented in a form accessible to undergraduate students. Using a minimum of algebra, the explanations rely instead on thought experiments involving clocks, meter sticks, and twins. The roles of energy, force, and momentum are described in detail. Kogut teaches physics at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
