Homework Help: Special Relativity Question

  1. Apr 21, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Show that if motion could occur at arbitrary speed, then time travel would be possible.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm not sure where to start of. I'm guessing that it has something to do with the light-cone and space-like vectors.

    Also can anyone recommend a good book for a mathematical introduction to special relativity. I'm in my first year at college and my teacher is awful and I'm really starting to struggle with the subject.

    Thanks for the help!
