Description

This book is primarily intended for Mathematicians, but students in the physical sciences will find here information not usually available in physics texts.

The main aim of this book is to provide a unified mathematical account of the conceptual foundations of 20th-Century Physics, in a form suitable for a one-year survey course in Mathematics or Mathematical Physics. Emphasis is laid on the interlocked historical development of mathematical and physical ideas.
