Relativity: The Special and the General Theory
ISBN: 9780143039822 / Angielski / Miękka / 129 str. 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 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. 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. 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. 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. 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...

The Curvature of Spacetime: Newton, Einstein, and Gravitation
ISBN: 9780231118200 / Angielski / Twarda / 368 str. The physicist Harald Fritzsch explains the meaning and implications of the general theory of relativity and other mysteries of modern physics by presenting an imaginary conversation among Newton, Einstein and a fictitious contemporary particle physicist called Adrian Haller. In this account of relativity, Newton serves as the sceptic and asks the questions a modern reader might ask. Einstein himself does the explaining while Haller explains the new developments that have occured since the general theory was proposed.

Secrets of the Old One: Einstein, 1905
ISBN: 9780387260051 / Angielski / Twarda / 200 str. 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...

Einstein's SpaceTime: An Introduction to Special and General Relativity
ISBN: 9780387699462 / Angielski / Twarda / 310 str. Between 1994 and 1999, I had the pleasure of lecturing Special and General Relativity in the Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales of the Universidad de Buenos Aires. These lectures were targeted to undergraduate and graduate students of Physics. However, it is increasingly apparent that interest in Relativity extends beyond these academic circles. Because of this reason, this book intends to become useful to students of related disciplines and to other readers interested in Einstein s work, who will be able to incorporate entirely the fundamental ideas of Relativity starting from the very...

Albert Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity: Emergence (1905) and Early Interpretation (19051911)
ISBN: 9780387948706 / Angielski / Miękka / 446 str. This book analyzes one of the three great papers Einstein published in 1905, each of which would alter forever the field it dealt with. The second of these papers, "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies," had an impact in a much broader field than electrodynamics: it established what Einstein sometimes referred to (after 1906) as the "socalled Theory of Relativity." Miller uses the paper to provide a window into the intense intellectual struggles of physicists in the first decade of the 20th century: the interplay between physical theory and empirical data, the fiercely held notions that...

The Geometry of Spacetime: An Introduction to Special and General Relativity
ISBN: 9780387986418 / Angielski / Twarda / 454 str. In 1905, Albert Einstein offered a revolutionary theoryspecial relativityto explain some of the most troubling problems in current physics concerning electromagnetism and motion. Soon afterwards, Hermann Minkowski recast special relativity essentially as a new geometric structure for spacetime. These ideas are the subject of the first part of the book. The second part develops the main implications of Einstein's general relativity as a theory of gravity rooted in the differential geometry of surfaces. The author explores the way an individual observer views the world and how a pair of...
