General Note: Based on courses taught at the University of Dublin, Carnegie Mellon University, and mostly at Simon Fraser University, this book presents the special theory of relativity from a mathematical point of view. It begins with the axioms of the Minkowski vector space and the flat spacetime manifold. Then it discusses the kinematics of special relativity in terms of Lorentz tranformations, and treats the group structure of Lorentz transformations

Throughout the book, examples, worked-out problems, and exercises (with hints and solutions) are furnished. Topics in this book include, but are not limited to

In General Relativity, Killing vectors describe the spacetime symmetries and to each such Killing vector field, we can associate conserved . Considerations on the Unification of Quantum Physics with the General Theory of Relativity.

In General Relativity, Killing vectors describe the spacetime symmetries and to each such Killing vector field, we can associate conserved charge through stress-energy tensor of matter which is mentioned in the article. In this article, I show that under simple set of canonical transformation of most general class of Bogoliubov transformation between creation, annihilation operators, those charges associated with spacetime symmetries are broken.

Anadijiban Das and Andrew DeBenedictis. General relativity is to date the most successful theory of gravity. In this theory, the gravitational field is not a conventional force but instead is due to the geometric properties of a manifold commonly known as space-time.
