#### It's About Time

Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 22.95In 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 Code

University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 18.00Albert 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 one of... more...

#### The Renaissance of General Relativity and Cosmology

Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 72.00Records the review meeting celebrating Dennis Sciama's 65th birthday and covers fundamental questions in cosmology. more...

#### The Special Theory of Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 18.95In these inspiring lectures David Bohm explores Albert Einstein?s celebrated Theory of Relativity that transformed forever the way we think about time and space. Yet for Bohm the implications of the theory were far more revolutionary both in scope and impact even than this. Stepping back from dense theoretical and scientific detail in this eye-opening... more...

#### Physical Relativity

Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 44.99Physical 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 Physics

Springer 2012; US$ 149.00This 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 Relativity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 681.00Marcel 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 Relativity

CRC Press 2012; US$ 38.95"This short but remarkable book on special relativity develops the theory strictly from the geometry of hyperbolas, an approach unique within the textbook literature. ? it gives an elementary, lively introduction to the theory. ? The approximately 70 diagrams are not merely illustrations of the material given in the text of this well-thought-out representation... more...
