Special Relativity | Lecture 10

submitted by pkamweru on 07/15/15 1

(June 18, 2012) Professor Susskind clarifies how some of his notation differs from the standard convention and then moves back into the concepts of momentum and conserved energy as it relates to special relativity. In 1905, while only twenty-six years old, Albert Einstein published "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies" and effectively extended classical laws of relativity to all laws of physics, even electrodynamics. In this course, Professor Susskind takes a close look at the special theory of relativity and also at classical field theory. Concepts addressed here include space-time and four-dimensional space-time, electromagnetic fields and their application to Maxwell's equations.
