5 Assume that a rocket ship leaves the earth in the year 2000 . One of a set of
twins born in 1980 remains on earth ; the other rides in the rocket . The rocket
ship is so constructed that it has an acceleration g in its own rest frame ( this
makes the ...
5 ) ( p • p ) = ( p ? . p " ) = - In the rest frame of the particle ( p ' = 0 ) the scalar
product ( 12 . 5 ) gives the energy of the particle at rest : E ' = 2 ( 12 . 6 ) To
determine , we consider the Lorentz transformation ( 12 . 4 ) of P from the rest
frame of the ...
is so strong that the particle is continually accelerated in the direction of E and its
average energy continues to increase with time. To see this we consider a
Lorentz transformation from the original frame to a system K" moving with a
velocity f E ...

A soul crushing technical manual written by a sadist that has served as the right of passage for physics PhDs since the dawn of time. Every single one of my professors studied this book, and every ... Read full review
