From the book reviews:
“Addressing physicists, applied scientists and engineers with no previous knowledge of tensor calculus, Ludyk … presents in a well-written manner a rather easy introduction to special as well as general relativity by solely using matrix calculus and elementary differential geometry. … It is more than certain that Ludyk’s treatment will make it possible for a larger number of students to get acquainted with special and general relativity theory at an introductory, undergraduate level.” (Theophanes Grammenos, Mathematical Reviews, April, 2014)
“The main audience for this book can be … those who have experience with practical calculations by use of matrices and vectors, but who have not the time to become familiar with tensor calculus. … this book presents essentially all ingredients what one expects from a book aimed to introduce special and general relativity … .” (Hans-Jürgen Schmidt, zbMATH, Vol. 1272, 2013)Get alerted on new Springer publications in the subject area of Classical and Quantum Gravitation, Relativity Theory.
