Oneworld Publications 2011; US$ 15.99Twenty years after Stephen Hawking's 9-million-copy selling A Brief History of Time, pioneering theoretical physicist Sean Carroll takes our investigation into the nature of time to the next level. You can't unscramble an egg and you can't remember the future. But what if time doesn't (or didn't!) always go in the same direction? Carroll's paradigm-shifting... more...

#### How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog

Basic Books 2012; US$ 16.99Everyone talks to their pets; Chad Orzel tells his about relativity. more...

#### Introduction to 3+1 Numerical Relativity

Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 74.99This book introduces the modern field of 3+1 numerical relativity. The book has been written in a way as to be as self-contained as possible, and only assumes a basic knowledge of special relativity. Starting from a brief introduction to general relativity, it discusses the different concepts and tools necessary for the fully consistent numerical simulation... more...

#### A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON RELATIVITY

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 150.00Starting 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...

#### ORBITING THE MOONS OF PLUTO

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 105.00The 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...

#### 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...

#### Relativity

Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 24.95Time magazine's "Man of the Century", Albert Einstein is the founder of modern physics and his theory of relativity is the most important scientific idea of the modern era.
