## 1/20 -- High School Circle: An introduction to spacetime physics and special relativityWe will work out some of the mathematics behind Einstein's theory of
relativity, including the concept of a spacetime diagram, the theory
of Doppler shifts, and Einstein's famous equation E=mc^2. Very little
prior knowledge of physics will be required (but we will assume some
familiarity with high school algebra). ## Handouts: |
