From Newton to Einstein From Newton to Einstein
F. Todd Baker,
From Newton to Einstein is a book devoted to classical mechanics. "Classical" here includes the theory of special relativity as well because, as argued in the book, it is essentially Newtonian mechanics extended to very high speeds. This information ...
