C7444: Basics of Special Relativity in Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 16 - 17, 2019)
Einstein's theory of special relativity is based off two basic principles: the speed of light is always the same, and physics is the same in every inertial frame. In this class, we will discuss and show how these assumptions lead to time dilation, length contraction, and the loss of simultaneity. By the end of class, you will be able to solve the famous "pole-barn" paradox, and gain some intuition into the most famous formula in physics: E=mc^2.

C7180: Basics of Special Relativity in Splash Spring 2019 (May. 04 - 05, 2019)
