Welcome

Welcome to our new lecture and the accompanying tutorial on the Theory of Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory. We deal with the structure of space-time, learn to handle the covariant representation, and we will study relativistic mechanics and simple classical field theories, focussing especially on electrodynamics. As we will see, relativistic physics is extremely elegant, it is perhaps one of the most esthetic theories in physics. This lecture is primarily aimed at Bachelor students in the 6th semester, but everyone is invited to participate. All what you need is enthusiasm and a basic knowledge in the field of theoretical mechanics.
