Special relativity incorporates the principle that the speed of light is the same for all inertial observers regardless of the state of motion of the source.

    Pages from Albert Einstein's original manuscript in which he defines his theory of relativity If you are a fan of science fiction, then you know that "relativity" is a fairly common part of the genre. For example, people on Star Trek are always talking about the space-time continuum, worm holes, time dilations and all sorts of other things that are based on the principle of relativity in one way or another. If you are a fan of science you know that relativity plays a big part there as well, especially when talking about things like black holes and astrophysics. If you have ever wanted to understand the fundamentals of relativity, then this edition of

    1.1 Time Is Not Absolute
    a / This Global Positioning System (GPS) system, running on a smartphone attached to a bike's handlebar, depends on Einstein's theory of relativity. Time flows at a different rates aboard a GPS satellite than it does on the bike, and the GPS software has to take this into account. b / The atomic clock has its own ticket and its own seat. c / Newton's laws do not distinguish past from future. The football could travel in either direction while obeying Newton's laws. d / All three clocks are moving to the east. Even though the west-going plane is moving to the west relative to the air, the air is moving to the east due to the earth's rotation.

    Relativity Einstein's theory of relativity deals with Newtonian physics when energies or velocities are near the speed of light. Relativity is usually thought of as modern physics since it was developed at the start of the 20th century and could only be tested in the realm available to scientists by high technology. However, relativity primarily completes the revolution that Newton started and is also highly deterministic as is much of classical physics. In the holistic viewpoint of relativity theory, concepts such as length, mass and time take on a much more nebulous aspect than they do in the apparently rigid reality of our everyday world. However, what relativity takes away with one hand, it gives back in the form of new and truly fundamental constants and concepts. The theory of relativity is traditionally broken into two parts, special and general relativity. Special relativity provides a framework for translating physical events and laws into forms appropriate for any inertial frame of reference. General relativity addresses the problem of accelerated motion and gravity. Special Theory of Relativity By the late 1800's, it was becoming obvious that there were some serious problems for Newtonian physics concerning the need for absolute space and time when referring to events or interactions (frames of reference). In particular, the newly formulated theory of electromagnetic waves required that light propagation occur in a medium (the waves had to be waves on something).

    • these parameters did not become uncertain (quite the opposite) only relative
    • relativity is broken into two parts:
    • special relativity involving inertial frames

    Title: Imaginary in all directions: an elegant formulation of special relativity and classical electrodynamics
    Authors: Martin Greiter Dirk Schuricht (Submitted on 30 Sep 2003) Abstract: A suitable parameterization of space-time in terms of one complex and three quaternionic imaginary units allows Lorentz transformations to be implemented as multiplication by complex-quaternionic numbers rather than matrices. Maxwell's equations reduce to a single equation.
