The Physics of Relativistic Particles: A Geometrical Approach - Part 2

During this seminar, the geometrical representation from part 1 of this lecture will be extended to account for Einstein's postulates of relativity theory adopting a hyperbolic geometry. Euclidean and hyperbolic geometries will also be shown to be related in the same way as non-relativistic and relativistic mechanics.

The applications discussed will include particle physics, the foundation of quantum mechanics and astrophysics.
