General relativity (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • It's About Timeby N. David Mermin

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 21.95

    In It's About Time , N. David Mermin asserts that relativity ought to be an important part of everyone's education--after all, it is largely about time, a subject with which all are familiar. The book reveals that some of our most intuitive notions about time are shockingly wrong, and that the real nature of time discovered by Einstein can be rigorously... more...

  • Cracking the Einstein Codeby Fulvio Melia; Roy Kerr

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 18.00

    Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity describes the effect of gravitation on the shape of space and the flow of time. But for more than four decades after its publication, the theory remained largely a curiosity for scientists; however accurate it seemed, Einstein’s mathematical code—represented by six interlocking equations—was... more...

  • The Renaissance of General Relativity and Cosmologyby George Ellis; Antonio Lanza; John Miller

    Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 65.00

    Records the review meeting celebrating Dennis Sciama's 65th birthday and covers fundamental questions in cosmology. more...

  • Physical Relativityby Harvey R. Brown

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 44.99

    Physical Relativity explores the nature of the distinction at the heart of Einstein's 1905 formulation of his special theory of relativity: that between kinematics and dynamics. Einstein himself became increasingly uncomfortable with this distinction, and with the limitations of what he called the 'principle theory' approach inspired by... more...

  • Einstein and the Changing Worldviews of Physicsby Christoph Lehner; Jürgen Renn; Matthias Schemmel

    Springer 2012; US$ 124.00

    This volume reviews conceptual conflicts at the foundations of physics now and in the past century. The focus is on the conditions and consequences of Einstein's pathbreaking achievements that sealed the decline of the classical notions of space, time, radiation, and matter, and resulted in the theory of relativity. Particular attention is paid to... more...

  • The Twelfth Marcel Grossmann Meeting on General Relativityby Thibault Damour; Robert Jantzen; Remo Ruffini

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 681.00

    Marcel Grossmann Meetings are formed to further the development of General Relativity by promoting theoretical understanding in the fields of physics, mathematics, astronomy and astrophysics and to direct future technological, observational, and experimental efforts. In these meetings are discussed recent developments in classical and quantum gravity,... more...

  • The Geometry of Special Relativityby Tevian Dray

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 36.95

    The Geometry of Special Relativity provides an introduction to special relativity that encourages readers to see beyond the formulas to the deeper geometric structure. The text treats the geometry of hyperbolas as the key to understanding special relativity. This approach replaces the ubiquitous ? symbol of most standard treatments with the appropriate... more...

  • General Relativityby Norbert Straumann

    Springer 2012; US$ 99.00

    This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition ‘General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics’. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, while Part II is devoted to tests of general relativity and many of its applications. Binary pulsars – our best laboratories... more...

  • Rough Setsby Lech Polkowski

    Springer 2002; US$ 119.00

    A comprehensive introduction to mathematical structures essential for Rough Set Theory. The book enables the reader to systematically study all topics of rough set theory. After a detailed introduction in Part 1 along with an extensive bibliography of current research papers. Part 2 presents a self-contained study that brings together all the relevant... more...
