Relativistic Angular Momentum

  • Michael Tsamparlis
Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics book series (ULNP)


In this chapter we continue our program of generalization of Newtonian physical quantities to Special Relativity by considering the physical quantity angular momentum tensor. Since this quantity in Newtonian Physics it is described by an antisymmetric second order tensor it is necessary that we introduce new mathematical concepts and tools, the main one being the concept of a bivector.
