The third volume in Leonard Susskind's one-of-a-kind physics series cracks open Einstein's special relativity and field theory
In the first two books in his wildly popular The Theoretical Minimum series, world-class physicist Leonard Susskind provided a brilliant first course in classical and quantum mechanics, offering readers not an oversimplified introduction, but the real thing - everything you need to start doing physics, and nothing more. Now, thankfully, Susskind and his former student Art Friedman are back, this time to introduce readers to special relativity and classical field theory. At last, waves, forces and particles will be demystified.
Using their typical brand of relatively simple maths, enlightening sketches and the same fictional counterparts, Art and Lenny, Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory takes us on an enlightening journey through a world now governed by the laws of special relativity. Starting in their new watering hole, Hermann's Hideaway, with a lesson on relativity, Art and Lenny walk us through the complexities of Einstein's famous theory.
Combining rigor with humour, Susskind and Friedman guarantee that Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory will become part of the reader's physics toolbox.

Notă biografică

Leonard Susskind (Author)
Leonard Susskind has been the Felix Bloch Professor in Theoretical Physics at Stanford University since 1978, and his online lectures are viewed all around the world. One of the fathers of string theory, he is the author of The Black Hole War and The Cosmic Landscape.

Art Friedman (Author)
Art Friedman is a life-long student of physics, and his career encompasses software engineering, teaching, and writing. When he's not busy puzzling over quantum entanglement, Art plays the fiddle.


Witty and insightful ... I found it thrilling
This is quantum mechanics for real. This is the good stuff, the most mysterious aspects of how reality works, set out with crystalline clarity. If you want to know how physicists really think about the world, this book is the place to start
