#### Discovering Relativity for Yourself

Cambridge University Press 1981; US$ 52.00Discovering Relativity for yourself explains Einstein's Theory of Relativity to readers who are daunted by the standard mathematical approach to that profound theory. more...

#### Einsteins Gegner

Campus Verlag 2009; US$ 31.37In den 1920er Jahren erschienen zahlreiche populäre Schriften, die Einsteins Relativitätstheorie widerlegen wollten. Milena Wazeck zeigt, in welchem Maße der Physiker und seine Theorie von Akademikern wie auch von Nichtakademikern als fundamentale Bedrohung wahrgenommen wurden. Diese Bedrohung war so stark, dass sich ein internationales Netzwerk gegen... 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...

#### Einstein 1905-2005

Springer 2006; US$ 139.00The Poincare Seminar is held twice a year at the Institute Henri Poincare in Paris. The goal of this seminar is to provide information about general topics of great interest in physics. Both the theoretical and experimental results are covered, with some historical background. This volume is devoted to Einstein's 1905 papers and their legacy. more...

#### The Universe of Fluctuations

Springer 2006; US$ 189.00The failure of all attempts to unify gravitation with other fundamental interactions has lead to an abandonment of point particles and differentiable spacetime of General Relativity and Quantum Theory, including Quantum Field Theory. While Quantum Superstrings (or M-Theory) and other Quantum Gravity approaches work with a lattice like structure or... more...

#### The Universe of General Relativity

Springer 2006; US$ 199.00This volume from the "Einstein Studies Series" is based largely on papers presented at the Sixth International Conference on the History of General Relativity, held in Amsterdam on June 26-29, 2002. These contributions from notable experts offer both new and historical insights on gravitation, general relativity, cosmology, unified field... more...

#### Relativity

Penguin Publishing Group 2006; US$ 13.00Redesigned inside and out to have a fresh, appealing look, this new edition of a classic Crown Trade Paperback is a collection of Einstein's own popular writings on his work and describes the meaning of his main theories in a way virtually everyone can understand. more...

#### Uniformly Accelerating Charged Particles

Springer 2008; US$ 219.00There has been a long debate about whether uniformly accelerated charges should radiate electromagnetic energy and how one should describe their worldline through a flat spacetime, i.e., whether the Lorentz-Dirac equation is right. There are related questions in curved spacetimes, e.g., do different varieties of equivalence principle apply to charged... more...

#### The Physical Basis of The Direction of Time

Springer 2007; US$ 59.95This thoroughly revised 5th edition of Zeh's classic text investigates irreversible phenomena and their foundation in classical, quantum and cosmological settings. It includes new sections on the meaning of probabilities in a cosmological context, irreversible aspects of quantum computers, and various consequences of the expansion of the Universe.... more...

#### Relativity

Oxford University Press, UK 2006; US$ 74.99A modern thinking person's guide to all of Einstein's relativity. Full of mathematical rigor, but stressing physical insight, motivation, and clarity of concepts and logic, rather than mere formalism or experimental detail. Over 300 thought-provoking problems. - ;Relativistic cosmology has in recent years become one of the most active and exciting... more...
