"The purposes of this book are (1) to explore and expound relativity physics and 4-dimensional symmetry from the logically simplest viewpoint by making one single postulate instead of two: and (2) to indicate the simplest generalization of the Lorentz transformation in order to cope with frames with constant linear accelerations. The fundamentally new ideas of the first purpose are developed on the basis of the term paper of a Harvard physics undergraduate. They lead to an unexpected affirmative answer to the long-standing question of whether it is possible to construct a relativity theory without postulating the constancy of the speed of light and retaining only the first postulate of special relativity."--Jacket.
