**The Light Cone: an illuminating introduction to relativity**

by Rob Salgado

**Publisher**: Syracuse University 2005**Number of pages**: 250

**Description**:

These documents comprise an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand "Spacetime", the spacetime of General Relativity.

We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to 3-dimensional observer's space. We focus on mathematical structures that are motivated by the physical theory.
