This title presents special relativity in a geometric framework using basic trigonometry. It emphasises the equivalence between special and hyperbolic trigonometry, and shows how the fascinating and easily accessible mathematics topic of hyperbolic triangle trigonometry is useful in solving problems in relativity.
