That’s where Einstein’s general theory of relativity comes in, because it can explain the general case of any sort of motion.

Einstein’s theory was based on two key principles: The principle of relativity: The laws of physics don’t change, even for objects moving in inertial (constant speed) frames of reference.

The present book is intended, as far as possible, to give the special and the general theory. book 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 theoretical by: There is an old book Relativity Max Born, called Einstein's Theory of Relativity which explains the The special and the general theory.

book 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.

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.

Page - ACCORDING to the general theory of relativity, the geometrical properties of space are not independent, but they are determined by matter. Thus we can draw conclusions about the geometrical structure of the universe only if we base our considerations on the state of the matter as being something that is known.4/5(12).

Gravitation by Charles Misner, Kip Thorne, and John Wheeler, is pretty much the authoritative reference on general relativity (to the extent that one exists). It discusses many aspects and applications of the theory in far more mathematical and logical detail than any other book I've seen.

(Consequently, it's very thick.) I would recommend. The book walks the reader through the development of the special and general theories of relativity and the supporting theories they were built upon. Starting with the special theory and its limited applicability and the later development of the more universal general theory, aimed at covering the deficiencies of the former/5(1K).

Special and General relativity explain the structure of space time and provide a theory of gravitation, respectively. Einstein’s theories shocked the world with their counterintuitive results, including the dissolution of absolute time. In this book he brings a simplified form of his profound understanding of the subject to the layperson/5(62).

Along with quantum mechanics in the s, Einstein s Special Theory of Relativity () and General Theory of Relativity () stand as the supreme achievements of twentieth-century physics.

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.

There is no doubt that Albert Einstein has been one of the most brilliant minds of the past century. His major contribution to science was the special and the general theory of relativity, which gave a new dimension to that we call today "Modern Physics".Cited by: This book is divided into three parts.

The first part explains what special relativity is all about. The second part discusses general relativity thoroughly and the last part deals with the considerations of the universe as a whole. The first part explains the principles of the special theory of relativity.4/5(1).

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. The book remains one of the most lucid explanations of the special and general theories ever written.

In the early s alone, it was translated into ten languages, and fifteen editions in the original German appeared over the course of Einstein's lifetime. The theory of relativity enriched physics and astronomy during the 20th century/5(12). 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 theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics/5().

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 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, from a general scientific and.

The description of special relativity in Einstein’s book is pleasurable and easy to read. I can imagine students in my special relativity course reading Einstein’s description and taking away a better understanding of the subject.

As to whether the general public can understand the work, I think Einstein’s own recommendation says it best: “The work presumes a standard of Author: Nelson Christensen. Book Description HTML.
