The premise of this book is that the effects of the special theory of relativity are a kinematical perspective rather than being real; but 'reality' is a slippery concept, and it is expected that the reader will keep that in mind. ( views) Relativity Without Tears by Z. K. Silagadze - . Since the theory of relativity uses involved higher mathematics, it is considered notoriously difficult to grasp, and at the time it was published, it was claimed that only 12 people in the world were able to fully understand it. One of these was the Dutch physicist Hendrik Lorentz, who wrote the articles collected in this book for a lay audience.

Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted that the space-time around Earth would be not only warped but also twisted by the planet's rotation. Gravity Probe B showed this to be correct. In. This book applies neutrosophic method to the General Theory of Relativity, aiming to discover new effects hidden before. ( views) An Introduction to the Theory of Rotating Relativistic Stars by Eric Gourgoulhon - arXiv, These notes introduce the theory of rotating stars in general relativity.

In the words of Einstein: The present book is intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, . It is evident that Einstein's little book “About the Special and the General Theory of Relativity in Plain Terms,” did not find its way into England during wartime. Anyone reading it will, in my opinion, come to the conclusion that the basic ideas of the theory” ― Hendrik Antoon Lorentz, The Einstein Theory of Relativity.

The Theory of Relativity is based on previously known scientific studies plus insights penned by Albert Einstein. He was one of the most advanced scientific minds of his day, and he made many contributions to physical science study. His work.

The new book by Jeffrey Bennett introduces Einstein’s theory of relativity to a lay audience, explaining why black holes don’t suck and other phenomena. 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. There is an old book by Max Born, called Einstein's Theory of Relativity which explains the Special Relativity in great detail without any advanced mathematics and a little bit of General Relativity.

It is suitable for those who has not yet started to physics degree or will not, but would like to understand the theory in a deeper and mathematical manner. This book presents an alternative representation of Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity, which makes Special Relativity much more comprehensible and is intended as a lecture for physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists and concentrates on the students of these fieldsBrand: Springer Singapore.

Then, at the end ofhe published a small book entitled On the Special and the General Theory of Relativity, Generally Comprehensible. This work was written with as little mathematics as possible and was designed to appeal to an even broader readership, albeit one still somewhat educated in mathematics or physics.

In this book Einstein explains, using the minimum of mathematical terms, the basic ideas and principles of the theory which has shaped the world we live in today. Unsurpassed by any subsequent books on relativity, this remains the most popular and useful exposition of Einstein's immense contribution to human knowledge/5(91).

InAlbert Einstein published the theory of special relativity, which explains how to interpret motion between different inertial frames of reference — that is, places that are moving at constant speeds relative to each other.

Einstein explained that when two objects are moving at a constant speed as the relative motion between the two [ ].

Einstein's general theory of relativity requires a curved space for the description of the physical world. If one wishes to go beyond superficial discussions of the physical relations involved, one needs to set up precise equations for handling curved space. The well-established mathematical technique that accomplishes this is clearly described in this classic book by Nobel Laureate 4/5(6).

This introduces a fundamental concept of relativity theory – spacetime as a unified entity of space and time. Creative use of the spacetime principle opens unlimited possibilities for SAS code developers. For example, you can embed a DATA step within another DATA step or a.
