Relativity (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • Relativity Demystifiedby David McMahon; Paul Alsing

    McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 23.00

    In 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 Timeby Stephen Hawking; Roger Penrose

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 14.95 US$ 13.60

    Einstein 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 Yourselfby Lilley

    Cambridge University Press 1981; US$ 50.00

    Discovering 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 Relativityby Leo Sartori

    University of California Press 1996; US$ 36.95

    Nonspecialists 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 Particlesby Stephen Lyle

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 182.76

    This 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 Relativityby Péter Hraskó

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 46.22

    This 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...

  • Timeby Clifford A. Pickover

    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 PLUTOby Elizabeth A. Rauscher; Richard L. Amoroso

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 112.00 US$ 101.92

    The 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 RELATIVITYby Bernard H. Lavenda

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 160.00 US$ 145.60

    Starting 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 Mirrorby Tony Hey; Patrick Walters

    Cambridge University Press 1997; US$ 56.00

    Lavishly illustrated, fascinating and accessible introduction to Einstein's relativity for general readers, school students and undergraduates. more...
