Curvature of Space and Time, with an Introduction to Geometric Analysis
ISBN: 9781470456283 Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 2530 dni roboczych. This book introduces advanced undergraduates to Riemannian geometry and mathematical general relativity. The overall strategy of the book is to explain the concept of curvature via the Jacobi equation which, through discussion of tidal forces, further helps motivate the Einstein field equations. After addressing concepts in geometry such as metrics, covariant differentiation, tensor calculus and curvature, the book explains the mathematical framework for both special and general relativity. Relativistic concepts discussed include (initial value formulation of) the Einstein equations,...

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 theoretical physics." When he wrote the book in 1916, Einstein's name was scarcely known outside the physics institutes. Having just completed his masterpiece, The General Theory of Relativitywhich provided a...

Bangs, Crunches, Whimpers, and Shrieks : Singularities and Acausalities in Relativistic Spacetimes
ISBN: 9780195095913 / Angielski / Twarda / 272 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych. Almost from its inception, Einstein's general theory of relativity was known to sanction spacetime models harboring singularities. Until the 1960s, however, spacetime singularities were thought to be artifacts of the idealizations of the models. This attitude evaporated in the face of a series of theorems, due largely to Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose, which showed that Einstein's general theory implies that singularities can be expected to occur in a wide variety of conditions in both gravitational collapse and in cosmology. In the light of these results some physicists adopted the...

The Reign of Relativity : Philosophy in Physics 19151925
ISBN: 9780195177176 / Angielski / Twarda / 330 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych. Universally recognized as bringing about a revolutionary transformation of the notions of space, time, and motion in physics, Einstein's theory of gravitation, known as "general relativity," was also a defining event for 20th century philosophy of science. During the decisive first ten years of the theory's existence, two main tendencies dominated its philosophical reception. This book is an extended argument that the path actually taken, which became logical empiricist philosophy of science, greatly contributed to the current impasse over realism, whereas new possibilities are opened in...

Relativity: Special, General, and Cosmological
ISBN: 9780198508359 / Angielski / Twarda / 448 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych. This text is a considerable amplification and modernization of the authors' earlier Essential Relativity. It brings relativity alive conceptually and emphasizes the foundations and the logical subtleties rather than the mathematics or the detailed experiments. It includes 300 exercises and promotes a visceral understanding and the confidence to tackle any fundamental relativistic problem. Following a critical overview of the whole field, specialrelativistic kinematics is presented three dimensionally before the mathematical level gradually rises. Four vectors preceded mechanics, four tensors...

General Relativity
ISBN: 9780198519966 / Angielski / Miękka / 248 str. Termin realizacji zamówienia: ok. 22 dni roboczych. Einstein's general theory of relativity is perhaps the most important perspective to emerge in a century of astonishing progress in the field of physics. However, it is also a notoriously difficult subject for beginning students. This book describes general relativity in terms understandable to undergraduates in physics and astronomy. It discusses concepts and experimental results, and provides a succinct account of formalism. A brief review of special relativity is followed by a discussion of the equivalence principle and its implications. Other topics covered include concepts of curvature...

Beginning on the 18th of March, 1905, at approximately eight week intervals, the noted German physics journal Annalen der Physik received three handwritten manuscripts from a relatively unknown patent examiner in Bern. The patent examiner was the twentysix year old Albert Einstein and the three papers would set the agenda for twentieth century physics. A fourth short paper was received by the journal on the 27th of September. It contained Einstein's derivation of the formula E=mc^{2}. These papers with their many technological ramifications changed our lives in the twentieth...
