Geometrical mechanics and de Broglie waves


Write The First Customer Review

This book was first published in 1954. Its main focus, almost uniquely for its time, is the application of Hamilton's optical method to variational principles in space-time. Professor J. L. Synge here uses this method to generate a completely relativistic theory of de Broglie waves: a theory both simple and easily visualised in relation to space-time. Throughout this volume Professor Synge systematically develops this theory, engaging with readily accessible examples as well as more abstract concepts. His introduction ...
