We briefly review the special theory of relativity and extensively study relativistic kinematics. We construct relativistic version of wave equations: Klein-Gordon equation for the scalar particle, Dirac equation for the spin-half particle, and covariant version of Maxwell's equations.

Course Description

We briefly review the special theory of relativity and extensively study relativistic kinematics. We also construct relativistic version of wave equations: the Klein-Gordon equation for the scalar particle, the Dirac equation for the spin-half particle, and the covariant version of Maxwell's equations.
