This course offers you the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the life and work of the young Albert Einstein and especially his mind-bending special theory of relativity.

Students may choose one of three approaches to the course: a more quantitative approach, a more qualitative approach, or an auditing approach. The more quantitative approach will include weekly problem sets, while the more qualitative approach will include a creative project relating to the young Einstein and/or the special theory of relativity.

Course Syllabus

Week One (Einstein in Context): Einstein s of the week; a thought experiment involving relativity; physics and Einstein circa 1900.

Week Two (Events, Clocks, and Reference Frames): Einstein s of the week; synchronizing clocks; the famous June 1905 paper; thinking more deeply about events and observers; understanding inertial frames of reference; spacetime diagrams; the Galilean transformation; Einstein's starting point: the two postulates.

Week Three (Ethereal Problems and Solutions): Einstein s of the week; a few words about waves; the luminiferous ether; the Michelson-Morley experiment vs. stellar aberration; how do you solve a problem like the ether?; the solutions of Fitzgerald, Lorentz, Poincare, and Einstein.

Week Four (The Weirdness Begins): Einstein s of the week; the light constancy principle; time and length are suspect; what isn't suspect; exploring the Lorentz factor; the miracle of the muon.

Week Five (Spacetime Switching): Einstein s of the week; the Lorentz transformation; leading clocks lag; the ultimate speed limit.

Week Six (Breaking the Spacetime Speed Limit?): Einstein s of the week; spacetime diagrams revisited; regions of spacetime; cause and effect, or vice versa?; faster than light paradoxes.

Week Seven (Paradoxes to Ponder): Einstein s of the week; the pole-in-the-barn paradox; the spaceships-on-a-rope paradox; how length contraction actually works; the twin paradox.

Week Eight (To the Center of the Galaxy and Back): Einstein s of the week; traveling the galaxy in one lifetime; the reception of relativity; Einstein's Nobel Prize and the nature of genius; relativity beyond science.

Recommended Background

No prior knowledge is required. Anyone who is willing to engage with the material is welcome. (For students choosing the more quantitative approach, a familiarity with basic algebra will be helpful. But a brief math review will be provided.)
