(relativity being too controversial then). Einstein wrote two theories of relativity; the work is known as “special relativity” because it deals only with the special case of uniform (i.e. non-accelerating) motion. In he published his “general theory of relativity”, dealing withgravityandacceleration. Strange thingshappen inaccel-File Size: KB. A little over a century ago, a young Albert Einstein presented his general theory of relativity to the world and utterly transformed our understanding of the universe. His theory changed the way we think about space and time, revealed how our universe has been expanding from a hot dense state called the big bang and predicted black holes. General Relativity: An Introduction to Black Holes, Gravitational Waves, and Cosmology provides readers with a solid understanding of the underlying physical concepts of general relativity. It also shows how they may derive important applications of the theory and is a solid grounding for those wishing to pursue further study. Greene, Einstein's Cosmos by Michio Kaku, but this is by far the best book on relativity that I've read. Brian Greene's books were amazing, but didn't focus entirely on special and general relativity, Einstein's Cosmos was an excellent book but was a little more biographical than I was hoping it would be, and Brian Cox's book was very good.

Mr Tompkins is the title character in a series of four popular science books by the physicist George books are structured as a series of dreams in which Mr Tompkins enters alternative worlds where the physical constants have radically different values from those they have in the real world. Gamow aims to use these alterations to explain modern scientific theories. In , he published a treatise entitled "Foundations of the General Theory of Relativity," in which he established the terminology of "special" and "general" relativity and presented his theory formally. Then, at the end of , he published a small book entitled On the Special and the General Theory of Relativity, Generally Comprehensible.

$\begingroup$ I dearly want to love this book; it covers exactly what I’m looking for, and available as is a big draw.

But it is riddled with errors. Some just slow my reading, but there are entire sections (e.g. Optical Images in SR) that I just can’t make sense of at all. owing mostly to mistakenly primed/unprimed labels—obviously pretty important for a book on relativity. About Relativity.

Thomas Vargish and Delo E. Mook encompass physics, the visual arts and literature in a thought-provoking analysis of the period from the s to World War II. Uncovering common structures and values underlying each of these disparate fields, the authors define.

Einstein's theory of relativity. The reader is assumed to have but little mathematical knowledge. Topics covered includes: Geometry and Cosmology, The Fundamental Laws of Classical Mechanics, The Newtonian World-System, The Fundamental Laws of Optics, The Fundamental Laws of Electrodynamics and Einstein's Special Principle of Relativity.

The general theory of relativity, together with the necessary parts of the theory of invariants, is dealt with in the author’s book Die Grundlagen der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie (The Foundations of the General Theory of Relativity) — Joh. Ambr. Barth, ; this book assumes some familiarity with the special theory of relativity.

There are a great number of really excellent books on relativity, but no particular book is good for everyone: the reader is as important as that which is being read.

To be honest I imagine that self-learning relativity to be quite difficult. Through writing Relativity, I learned that when we extend empathy to other people (fictional or real) we discover that everyone has a universe inside them, whether we identify with them or not.

I had to figure out how to live in my characters’ individual universes and that taught me a lot about interpreting other people’s ed on: Janu Pris: kr. Häftad, Skickas inom vardagar.

Most of them are pretty elderly. Taylor and Wheeler is good, but not all that mathematical. It is designed for people who have had intro physics only. Still, it is a good reference. Rindler is the classic (Intro to Special Relativity).
