Special theory of relativity



In this course, the existence of maximal finite invariant speed (speed of light)  leads to the many interesting consequences.  The classical Newtonian theory breaks at high speed.  The classical concepts of space and time breaks and the new concept of spacetime arises in which space and time are in the same footing. And our usual intuition breaks at this speeds. We observe lots of new phenomena which are relativistic in nature. One example is Electromagnetism.
