    About the  Book:

    This book is about the teaching of Special Theory of Relativity to undergraduates who are not likely to study the general theory. The author points out that the present courses tend to confuse the students because they are based on the propagation of light, while asserting that the special theory is applicable to any event monitored by two observers who are moving with uniform velocity relative to each other. The author suggests that a change in the sequence of topics in the conventional course could avoid any confusion or misinterpretation.
