Relativistic Kinetics from the Bondi "K"-Calculus
Dasgupta, Ananda
European Journal of Physics, v28 n5 p817-831 Sep 2007
The Bondi K-calculus is a delightful method that has been used to provide rich insights into relativistic kinematics. In this paper, we will try to show how several important results of relativistic kinetics can be derived simply by using this approach. In addition, we will also indicate how the K-calculus can be used to simplify certain calculations in this topic. (Contains 4 footnotes and 1 figure.)
