Hi, I am an undergraduate engineering student and I was briefly introduced to relativity a couple years ago in a physics class. Since then, I was facinated with the subject. I want to try to learn relativity on my own time because my school don't offer any courses on it. I was wondering if you guys have any suggestion on where to start. Should I start by learning the math first, like tensors, differential geometry, and field theory? Or should I read books on relativity for beginners? Is there a good book that will introduce both? I want to understand this subject down to its last detail. Thanks for any inputs(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
