An accesible version of Einstein's masterpiece of theory, written by the genius himself According to Einstein himself, this book is intended "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 theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of/5.

General relativity is a highly technical mathematical theory, is firmly grounded on experiment. The guiding principles behind the theory–that all frames of reference are to be treated equally, special relativity should be recovered in the absence of gravitation, yet it and Newtonian mechanics is appropriate when gravitational fields are weak.

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).

A thorough documentation of Albert Einstein's plagiarism of the general theory of relativity. Republishes the relevant papers of Einstein's predecessors, captures the history of the major priority disputes and exposes how Einstein manipulated credit for the work of others.

A super-quick, super-painless guide to the theory that conquered the universe. For years, the general theory of relativity has been a pillar of modern physics. The basic idea is so elegant that you don’t need superpowers to understand it. Begin with Isaac Newton’s first law of motion: An object remains in uniform motion unless acted on.

The General Theory of Relativity The General Theory of Relativity is, as the name indicates, a generalization of the Special Theory of Relativity.

It is certainly one of the most remarkable achievements of science to date, it was developed by Einstein with little or no experimental motivation but driven instead by philosophical questions:File Size: 1MB.

The Origin of Relativity. Relativity as founded by Hendrik A. Lorentz follows from the structure of our matter.

Relativity is generally understood to be a complicated and hardly capable theory. This is a basic misunderstanding. Despite of the general understanding, relativity is not complicated.

Only Einstein has managed to make it complicated. User Review - Flag as inappropriate Timeless classic book. This is the most important finding (not just one of the most) in the history of human beings. As one of the great physicist, Lorentz deducted the Lorentz factor by which time, length and relativistic mass change for an object while the object is Lorentz failed to discover this relativity due to his belief in Newton's /5(13).

After completing the final version of his general theory of relativity in NovemberAlbert Einstein wrote a book about relativity for a popular audience.

His intention was “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 theory. "This book will play a vital role in introducing new readers to Einstein and the many fascinating questions surrounding his work."--Richard Staley, author ofEinstein’s Generation: The Origins of the Relativity Revolution "This exciting new edition of Einstein’s book will be of real interest to scholars as well as general readers—and it is perfectly timed for the centennial of Einstein /5().

General relativity completely changed the discussion of the origin and fate of the universe. A static universe could have existed forever.

Gibson foundation in the University of Glasgow. Criticism of the theory of relativity of Albert Einstein was mainly expressed in the early years after its publication in the early twentieth century, on scientific, pseudoscientific, philosophical, or ideological bases.

Though some of these criticisms had the support of reputable scientists, Einstein's theory of relativity is now accepted by the scientific community. A book in which one great mind explains the work of another great mind in terms comprehensible to the layman is a significant achievement.

This is such a book. Max Born is a Nobel Laureate () and one of the world's great physicists: in this book he analyzes and interprets the theory of Einsteinian relativity/5(22).

David Hilbert, fascinated by Einstein's work on relativity and Gustav Mie's work on electrodynamics, decided to construct a unified field theory of matter. In two communications to the Göttingen Academy (on 20 November and 23 December ), Hilbert developed his theory of the foundations of physics.

General Relativity is a graduate textbook and reference on Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity written by the gravitational physicist Robert Wald. the book, a tome of almost pages, covers many aspects of the general theory of relativity. It is divided into two : Robert Wald.

Foundation [2]. General relativity was Einstein’s enigmatic theory of gravitation and his oration received a resounding applause.

Albert Einstein’s General relativity theory is a book from with seven seals for the vast majority of “normal mortals”. In a nutshell, the special theory of relativity developed earlier states that everything is “relative”, i.e.

that time does not always pass equally quickly and, therefore, a minute can sometimes last longer and sometimes shorter. General Theory of Relativity Øyvind Grłn and Sigbjłrn Hervik. Contents Preface xv Notation xvii I INTRODUCTION: NEWTONIAN PHYSICS AND SPECIAL RELATIVITY 1 1 Relativity Principles and Gravitation 3 Lagrangian formulation of General Relativity "The publication of The Genesis of General Relativity marks the outcome of 10 years of research into the origins of Einstein’s General Relativity Theory.

It provides a comprehensive study and in-depth analysis of how the work of Albert Einstein and his contemporaries changes our understanding of space, time and gravitation. Thereby, we give a brief introduction to the origins and history of tensor calculus as a mathematical discipline, with its close relation to the special and general theories of relativity.

Thereafter, we indicate the applicability and usefulness of tensor calculus in a number of other areas of physics and engineering. But when the universe is the Planck size, a billion trillion trillionth of a centimeter, the two scales are the same, and quantum theory has to be taken into account.

In order to understand the Origin of the universe, we need to combine the General Theory of Relativity with quantum theory. Einstein structured his book in three parts: The first part, comprising seventeen chapters, is on the special theory of relativity; the second, comprising twelve chapters, is on the general theory.

A First Course in General Relativity Bernard Schutz Clarity, readability and rigor combine in the second edition of this widely-used textbook to provide the first step into general relativity for undergraduate students with a minimal background in mathematics.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.When I started work on the Einstein Papers, there was already a large literature on the origins of SRT compared, say, to the rather scanty amount published on the origins of the general theory of relativity (GRT). So I assumed that the development of SRT must be fairly clear.
