Einstein’s Special Relativity (E-SR) is the cornerstone of physics. De Sitter invariant SR (dS/AdS-SR) is a natural extension of E-SR, hence it relates to the foundation of physics. This book provides a description to dS/AdS-SR in terms of Lagrangian-Hamiltonian formulation associated with spacetime metric of inertial reference frames.
One of the outstanding features of the book is as follows: All discussions on SR are in the inertial reference frames. This is a requirement due to the first principle of SR theory. The descriptions on dS/AdS-SR in this book satisfy this principle. For the curved spacetime in dS/AdS-SR theory, it is highly non-trivial.
○ This is the first book to describe dS/AdS-SR systematically and comprehensively
○ The crucial contributions to dS/AdS-SR due to Lu – Zou – Guo’s work (1970’s) are interpreted in detail in this book. The conceptions of dS/AdS-SR Mechanics, dS/AdS-SR Quantum Mechanics, dS/AdS-SR General Relativity, and effects of dS/AdS-SR Cosmology are introduced in the book. In the descriptions, many techniques are involved
○ The author, Professor Mu-Lin Yan, is an expert in SR, GR, Black Hole Physics, and Particle Physics. He is one of the discoverers of Nieh – Yan topological identity (1982), High genus solution of Yang – Baxter equation of chiral Potts model (1987), and some unusual hadron’s states (2005). He also has contributions to the calculations of entropies of black holes, and to the studies of non-perturbative QCD
