Abstract

: During the semester of spring 2002, I completed a math independent study with Dr. Robert Cicenia. The paper that I have written, named A Geometric Road to Relativity, was the final result of my independent study. I used James Callahan’s book The Geometry of Spacetime along with many other requisite materials to guide me. My study consisted of two main ideas. First, I explained the problems found by scientists and mathematicians that prompted a need for a non- Euclidean geometry to model the physical world. Second, I analyzed the development of Minkowski geometry
