Sidney Coleman’s Lectures on Relativity
Sidney Coleman (1937–2007) earned his doctorate at Caltech under Murray Gell-Mann. Before completing his thesis, he was hired by Harvard and remained there his entire career. A celebrated particle theorist, he is perhaps best known for his brilliant lectures, given at Harvard and in a series of summer school courses at Erice, Sicily, several of which are collected in Aspects of Symmetry (Cambridge, 1984). Three times in the 1960s he taught a graduate course on special and general relativity; this book is based on lecture notes taken by three of his students and compiled by the editors.
david j. griffiths received his BA (1964) and PhD (1970) from Harvard University, and was Professor of Physics at Reed College from 1978 until 2009. He is author of Introduction to Electrodynamics (4th ed. Cambridge University Press, 2017), Introduction to Quantum Mechanics (3rd ed. with Darrell Schroeter, Cambridge University Press, 2018), Introduction to Elementary Particles (2nd ed. Wiley, 2008), and Revolutions in Twentieth-Century Physics (Cambridge, 2013). He is also coeditor of Quantum Field Theory Lectures of Sidney Coleman (World Scientiﬁc, 2018). He was a PhD student of Sidney Coleman, and this book is based in part on his lecture notes from Coleman’s course on relativity.
david derbes received his BA (1974) from Princeton University, Part III of the Mathematical Tripos at the University of Cambridge (1975), and his PhD (1979) from the University of Edinburgh. He was a high school teacher for forty years, winning a Golden Apple in 2007. He has edited Freeman Dyson’s Advanced Quantum Mechanics (World Scientiﬁc, 2007, 2011), and is coeditor of Lillian Lieber’s The Einstein Theory of Relativity (Paul Dry Books, Philadelphia, 2008) and Quantum Field Theory Lectures of Sidney Coleman (World Scientiﬁc, 2018).
richard b. sohn received his BA (1969) and PhD (1976) in physics from the Univer-sity of Connecticut, and a master’s in physics (1971) from the University of Maryland. He has held roles as a professor in physics, a research scientist, and a software engineer. He is coeditor of Quantum Field Theory Lectures of Sidney Coleman (World Scientiﬁc, 2018).
