Explains the technical issues of general relativity theory and discusses how these issues bear upon philosophical problems about the nature of space and time, causality, and laws of nature. This book provides an overview of the technical literature as well as analytical commentary on its philosophical significance. more...

Thanks to Einstein's relativity theories, our notions of space and time underwent profound revisions about a 100 years ago. The resulting interplay between geometry and physics has dominated all of fundamental physics since then. This volume contains contributions from leading researchers, worldwide, who have thought deeply about the nature and consequences... more...

The impact of Einstein's relativity is perhaps most dramatic in astronomy. This title explains to general readers the applications of relativity. It explains how deeply relativistic ways of viewing the Universe have informed our interpretations of it, and how many of the amazing discoveries have made sense only as part of Einstein's universe. more...

This special double issue is concerned with some of the new theories of space and time. We would wish to express our thanks to the Guest Editors, Leon Feng, B. Paul Gibson and Yi Lin for accepting the invitation of the Editorial Advisory Board (EAB) of this journal to prepare it. The invitation follows the success of workshops and seminars organised... more...

Ever since 1911, the Solvay Conferences have shaped modern physics. The 23rd edition, chaired by 2004 Nobel Laureate David Gross, did not break with that tradition. It gathered most of the leading figures working on the central problem of reconciling Einsteins theory of gravity with quantum mechanics. These proceedings give a broad overview with... more...

Einstein, Relativity and Absolute Simultaneity is an anthology of original essays by an international team of leading philosophers and physicists who have come together to reassess the contemporary paradigm of the relativistic concept of time. A great deal has changed since 1905 when Einstein proposed his Special Theory of Relativity, and this book... more...

All physicists would agree that one of the most fundamental problems of the 21st century physics is the dimensionality of the world. In the four-dimensional world of Minkowski (or Minkowski spacetime) the most challenging problem is the nature of the temporal dimension. In Minkowski spacetime it is merely one of the four dimensions, which means that... more...

?Das vorliegende Büchlein soll solchen eine möglichst exakte Einsicht in die Relativitätstheorie vermitteln, die sich vom allgemein wissenschaftlichen, philosophischen Standpunkt für die Theorie interessieren, ohne den mathematischen Apparat der theoretischen Physik zu beherrschen. Der Verfasser hat sich die größte Mühe gegeben, die Hauptgedanken möglichst... more...

Einstein's theory of relativity shattered the world of physics - replacing Newtonian ideas of space and time with bizarre and counterintuitive conclusions: a world of slowing clocks and stretched space, black holes and curved space-time. This Very Short Introduction explores and explains the theory in an accessible and understandable way. - ;100... more...

Modern physics has revealed the universe as a much stranger place than we could have imagined. The puzzle at the centre of our knowledge of the universe is time. Michael Lockwood takes the reader on a fascinating journey into the nature of things. He investigates philosophical questions about past, present, and future, our experience of time, and the... more...
