What Are Tensors Exactly?

by Hongyu Guo

Tensors have numerous applications in physics and engineering. There is often a fuzzy haze surrounding the concept of tensor that puzzles many students. The old-fashioned definition is difficult to understand...

Summary of The God Equation

by Alexander Cooper

Summary of The God Equation

Chapter 1: The same year Galileo Galilei died a broken man in his prison cell, another legend was born in London. For Kaku, Isaac Newton is the greatest scientist who has ever lived,...

Physics of the Lorentz Group (Second Edition)

by Sibel Başkal, Young Kim & Marilyn Noz

This book explains the Lorentz group in a language familiar to physicists, namely in terms of two-by-two matrices. While the three-dimensional rotation group is one of the standard mathematical tools in physics,...

Essentials of Quantum Mechanics and Relativity

by Shangwu Qian

Quantum mechanics and relativity are two important topics of modern physics. This book serves as an introduction to the essential topics in the fields. It is suitable for a one-semester course for undergraduate...

Tale Of Two Twins, A: The Langevin Experiment Of A Traveler To A Star

by Lucien Gilles Benguigui

The thought experiment proposed by Langevin in 1911, known under the popular names, 'Clock Paradox' or 'Twin Paradox', is the most surprising result of the theory of Relativity: A twin who travels to a star...

Inflated Expectations: A Cosmological Tale - A Conversation with Paul Steinhardt

by Howard Burton

This book is based on an in-depth filmed conversation between Howard Burton and Paul Steinhardt, the Albert Einstein Professor of Science and Director of the Center for Theoretical Science at Princeton University....

Adiabatic Thermodynamics of Fluids

by Christian Fronsdal

Unlike the traditional approach to thermodynamics, this book begins with a brief exposition of hydrodynamics. At this stage, the development is limited to potential flows, because, until recently, that is all...

Special relativity

by Alessio Mangoni

This book is dedicated to Einstein's special relativity. The main topics are: postulates of relativity, events and Minkowski space-time, Lorentz transformations, metrics in scalar products (with an analysis...

General Relativity

by Marvin Blecher

This textbook is suitable for a one-semester introduction to General Relativity for advanced undergraduates in physics and engineering. The book is concise so that the entire material can be covered in the one-semester...

The foundation of the generalized theory of relativity

by Albert Einstein

The theory which is sketched in the following pages forms the most wide-going generalization conceivable of what is at present known as "the theory of Relativity;" this latter theory I differentiate from the...

Newton's Principia

by Sir Isaac Newton

It was Isaac Newton's Principia that founded the law of universal gravitation on 5th July 1687. It is the same principia that inspired Albert Einstein into formulating the Einstein field equations (the general...


by Albert Einstein

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...

FLATLAND - A Romance of Many Dimensions

by Edwin A. Abbott

This special edition is a distinguished vintage reproduction, of the 1884 satirical novella Flatland, by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott. Meticulously elaborated by the editorial team of Chiron Academic...

The Einstein Theory of Relativity

by Prof. H. A. Lorentz

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...

Science at the Crossroads

by Herbert Dingle

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...

Challenging the Unchallengeable

by John D. Frey

John D. Frey leads readers on a fascinating journey in this book that seeks to prove that Albert Einsteins theory of special relativity is all wrong.

He begins by sharing an overview of special relativity, including...

Relativity from Lorentz to Einstein.

by Alberto Palazzi

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...

Relativity: The Special and General Theory

by Albert Einstein

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...

Albert Einstein


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

Colliding Plane Waves in General Relativity

by J.B. Griffiths

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...
