The book: Spacetime Physics (Taylor - Wheeler) - missing solutions

  1. Dec 15, 2013 #1
    I have buyed the book Spacetime physics - Introduction to Special Relativity; Second Edition.

    It is a great book, although I am currently only at second chapter.

    There are exercises with solutions in this book. The problem is, there are solutions only to odd numbered exercises. Can I find somewhere solutions to even-numbered ones?

    Is it a purpose by authors, that some exercises don't have solutions in the book, so readers cannot controll themselves?

    Thanks for any help

    Yes. Instructors who use the book for a course that they are teaching, can assign exercises that don't have solutions given, as homework that is to be submitted for grading (marking). This is very common in the US, maybe not as common elsewhere.
