Special Relativistic Motion

Part of the Modeling and Simulation in Science, Engineering & Technology book series (MSSET)

Abstract

Deterministic particle motion can also be studied in a relativistic context. We will do this in the present chapter. However, only pertinent concepts from special relativity will be defined and applied. In addition, we will concentrate on the fundamental problem of motion in one space dimension.
