#### Relativity Demystified

McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 23.00In Relativity Demystified a physicist explains Einstein's theory of relativity in layman's terms, minus heavy-duty discussion or formal mathematics. Author David McMahon gradually builds up readers' practical skills to a point where they can eventually solve real problems in the field of general relativity. The book offers examples that vary in... more...

#### The Nature of Space and Time

Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 14.95 US$ 13.60Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein?s general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined?... more...

#### Discovering Relativity for Yourself

Cambridge University Press 1981; US$ 50.00Discovering Relativity for yourself explains Einstein's Theory of Relativity to readers who are daunted by the standard mathematical approach to that profound theory. more...

#### Understanding Relativity

University of California Press 1996; US$ 36.95Nonspecialists with no prior knowledge of physics and only reasonable proficiency with algebra can now understand Einstein's special theory of relativity. Effectively diagrammed and with an emphasis on logical structure, Leo Sartori's rigorous but simple presentation will guide interested readers through concepts of relative time and relative space.... more...

#### Uniformly Accelerating Charged Particles

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 182.76This book examines the problems with the LD equation in flat spacetime and details its extension to curved spacetime. It compares different equivalence principles as well as vindicates some. more...

#### Basic Relativity

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 46.22This text goes much further than describing the fundamentals of general relativity, using a fresh approach that explains perplexing relativistic effects such as time dilation and Lorentz contraction prior to the volume?s discussion of Lorentz-transformation. more...

#### Time

Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 16.99"Bucky Fuller thought big," Wired magazine recently noted, "Arthur C. Clarke thinks big, but Cliff Pickover outdoes them both." In his newest book, Cliff Pickover outdoes even himself, probing a mystery that has baffled mystics, philosophers, and scientists throughout history--What is the nature of time?In Time: A Traveler's Guide , Pickover takes... more...

#### ORBITING THE MOONS OF PLUTO

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 112.00 US$ 101.92The Maxwell, Einstein, Schrödinger and Dirac equations are considered the most important equations in all of physics. This volume aims to provide new eight- and twelve-dimensional complex solutions to these equations for the first time in order to reveal more...

#### A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON RELATIVITY

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 160.00 US$ 145.60Starting off from noneuclidean geometries, apart from the method of Einstein's equations, this book derives and describes the phenomena of gravitation and diffraction. A historical account is presented, exposing the missing link in Einstein's construction of the theory of general relativity: the uniformly rotating disc, together with his failure... more...

#### Einstein's Mirror

Cambridge University Press 1997; US$ 56.00Lavishly illustrated, fascinating and accessible introduction to Einstein's relativity for general readers, school students and undergraduates. more...
