Cosmological special relativity : the large scale structure of space, time and velocity / Moshe Carmeli.

By: Carmeli, Moshe.
Material type: TextTextPublisher: Singapore ; World Scientific, c1997Description: xiv, 115 p. : ill. ; 23 cm.ISBN: 9810230796.Subject(s): Cosmology | Special relativity (Physics) | Gravitational fields | Space and timeDDC classification: 523.1
Contents:
1. Introduction -- 2. Cosmological Special Relativity -- 3. Extension of the Lorentz Group to Cosmology -- 4. Fundamentals of Einstein's Special Relativity -- 5. Structure of Spacetime -- 6. The Light Cone -- 7. Mass, Energy and Momentum-- Index.
Summary: This volume deals with special relativity theory and its applications to cosmology. It presents Einstein's theory of space and time in detail, and describes the large-scale structure of space, time and velocity as a new cosmological special relativity. A cosmological Lorentz-like transformation, which relates events at different cosmic times, is derived and applied. A new law of addition of cosmic times is obtained, and the inflation of the space at the early universe is derived, both from the cosmological transformations. The book should be of interest to cosmologists, astrophysicists, theoretical physicists, mathematical physicists, and mathematicians.
