Relativity (Physics)

Most popular at the top

  • Introduction to Relativityby John B. Kogut

    Elsevier Science 2001; US$ 54.95

    Introduction to Relativity is intended to teach physics and astronomy majors at the freshman, sophomore or upper-division levels how to think about special and general relativity in a fundamental, but accessible, way. Designed to render any reader a "master of relativity", everything on the subject is comprehensible and derivable from first principles.... more...

  • The Large Scale Structure of Space-Timeby S. W. Hawking; G. F. R. Ellis

    Cambridge University Press 1973; US$ 84.00

    This 1973 book discusses Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and its predictions concerning black holes and singularities in space-time itself. more...

  • The Yoga of Time Travelby Fred Alan Wolf

    Quest Books 2012; US$ 17.95

    Buddha said he could move backward through time, observes theoretical physicist Fred Alan Wolf. Time travel is not just science fiction; it may actually be possible. Wolf draws on yoga and quantum physics to show that time is a flexible projection of mind. Cheating time, he says, is an ancient metaphysical idea from the Vedas having to do with moving... more...

  • Relativity for Everyoneby Kurt Fischer

    Springer 2013; US$ 29.99

    This book explains the theory of special and general relativity in detail, without digressions such as information on Einstein's life or the historical background. However, complicated calculations are replaced with figures and thought experiments, the text being formulated in such a way that the reader will be able to understand the gist intuitively.... more...

  • What Is Relativity?by Jeffrey Bennett

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 24.99

    It is common knowledge that if the Sun suddenly turned into a black hole, it would suck Earth and the rest of the planets into oblivion. Yet as bestselling author and astrophysicist Jeffrey Bennett points out, black holes don?t suck. With that simple idea in hand, Bennett begins an entertaining introduction to Einstein?s theories, describing the amazing... more...

  • Time Travel and Warp Drivesby Allen Everett; Thomas Roman

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 18.00

    To see video demonstrations of key concepts from the book, please visit this website: http://www.press.uchicago.edu/sites/timewarp.index.html.  Sci-fi makes it look so easy. Receive a distress call from Alpha Centauri? No problem: punch the warp drive and you're there in minutes. Facing a catastrophe that can't be averted? Just pop back in... more...

  • SCALE RELATIVITY AND FRACTAL SPACE-TIMEby Laurent Nottale

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 237.00

    This book provides a comprehensive survey of the development of the theory of scale relativity and fractal space-time. It suggests an original solution to the disunified nature of the classical-quantum transition in physical systems, enabling the basis of quantum mechanics on the principle of relativity, provided this principle is extended to scale... more...

  • 100 Years Of Relativityby Abhay Ashtekar

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 248.00

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 234.00

    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...

  • Relativistic Realityby J.D. Edmonds

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 154.00

    It now appears that the old argument about Lorentz vs Galileo relativity is passing into history. The Lorentz symmetry may soon become obsolete itself just as the Galileo symmetry did about 1900. The tremendous successes of QED represent real progress in our quest to understand nature. The answer is not to go as most “outsiders” but to... more...
