  • The Universe of General Relativityby A.J. Kox; Jean Eisenstaedt

    Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 229.00

    A century ago, in 1905, Albert Einstein published, ?On the Electrodynamics of M- ing Bodies,? in which the foundations were laid for the Special Theory of Relativity. Ten years later his relativistic theory of gravitation and the General Theory of Relat- ity appeared. Fifty years ago, Einstein passed away in Princeton. In the 1980s, John Stachel, then... more...

  • The Quantum Structure Of Space And Timeby David Gross; Marc Henneaux; Alexander Sevrin

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 37.00

    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 Einstein’s theory of gravity with quantum mechanics. These proceedings give a broad overview with... more...

  • Einstein, Relativity and Absolute Simultaneityby William Lane Craig; Quentin Smith

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    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...

  • Relativity and the Dimensionality of the Worldby Vesselin Petkov

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 169.00

    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...

  • The Physical Basis of The Direction of Timeby H. Dieter Zeh

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; Not Available

    This 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...

  • The Ontology of Spacetime IIby Dennis Dieks

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 210.00

    The sixteen papers collected in this volume are expanded and revised versions of talks delivered at the Second International Conference on the Ontology of Spacetime, organized by the International Society for the Advanced Study of Spacetime (John Earman, President) at Concordia University (Montreal) from 9 to 11 June 2006. Most chapters are devoted... more...

  • Relativity: A Very Short Introductionby Russell Stannard

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 7.99

    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. more...

  • The Labyrinth of Timeby Michael Lockwood

    OUP Oxford 2005; US$ 16.99

    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...

  • Relativityby Wolfgang Rindler

    OUP Oxford 2006; US$ 74.99

    A 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. more...

  • Über die spezielle und die allgemeine Relativitätstheorieby Albert Einstein

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; Not Available

    ?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. Die Lektüre setzt etwa Maturitätsbildung und - trotz der Kürze des... more...
