Whether it is true or not that not more than twelve persons in all the world are able to understand Einstein's Theory, it is nevertheless a fact that there is a constant demand for information about this much-debated...

**A brief introduction to gravity through Einstein’s general theory of relativity**

Of the four fundamental forces of nature, gravity might be the least understood and yet the one with which we are most intimate....

*Science at the Crossroads* was published by Herbert Dingle in 1972 at the end of a gruelling controversy with the English scientific world about the clock paradox in Einstein’s special relativity. It is still...

Everyone knows that Einstein’s special relativity contains a theory of time measurements, which are no longer conceived as absolute, but are related to the state of motion of the clock and to the point of...

After completing the final version of his general theory of relativity in November 1915, Albert Einstein wrote a book about relativity for a popular audience. His intention was 'to give an exact insight into...

**Dive into a mind-bending exploration of the physics of black holes**

Black holes, predicted by Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity more than a century ago, have long intrigued scientists and the public...

The present book is intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the...

**Keen to learn but short on time? Get to grips with the life of Albert Einstein in next to no time with this concise guide**.

50Minutes.com provides a clear and engaging analysis of the life and career of Albert...

Whilst general relativity is not complex in its formulation, the physical interpretation of its mathematical descriptions gives rise to a range of exciting consequences in cosmology. A detailed understanding...

Albert Einstein lived a very interesting life. When he was young, his teacher said that he would never be anything great because he was stupid. We all know how wrong his teacher was because Einstein grew to...

**Weaving together the great ideas of science, The Reality Frame takes us on a thrilling journey from empty space all the way to the human mind.**

Acclaimed science writer Brian Clegg builds up reality piece by piece,...

This monograph surveys recent research on the collision and interaction of gravitational and electromagnetic waves. "This is a particularly important topic in general relativity," the author notes, "since the...

By the year 1900, most of physics seemed to be encompassed in the two great theories of Newtonian mechanics and Maxwell's theory of electromagnetism. Unfortunately, there were inconsistencies between the two...

**A Princeton astrophysicist explores whether journeying to the past or future is scientifically possible in this “intriguing” volume (Neil deGrasse Tyson).**

It was H. G. Wells who coined the term “time...

This ebook is also available as paperback (ISBN 9789187751165) and hardcover (ISBN 9789176374856).

This special edition is a distinguished vintage reproduction, of the 1884 satirical novella Flatland, by the...

Based on the ideas of Einstein and Minkowski, this concise treatment is derived from the author's many years of teaching the mathematics of relativity at the University of Michigan. Geared toward advanced undergraduates...

Three-part treatment explores special relativity in terms of kinematics and introductory dynamics as well as general relativity. Ideal for classroom use, supplementary reading, and self-study. Numerous problems...

A truly Galilean-class volume, this book introduces a new method in theory formation, completing the tools of epistemology. It covers a broad spectrum of theoretical and mathematical physics by researchers from...

Sir Arthur Eddington here formulates mathematically his conception of the world of physics derived from the theory of relativity. The argument is developed in a form which throws light on the origin and significance...

Clear, nontechnical treatment makes principles of relativity more accessible than ever. The author gradually introduces Einstein's ideas in terms of familiar concepts from high school-level geometry. More than...
