#### Relativity: The Theory and Its Philosophy

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Relativity: The Theory and its Philosophy provides a completely self-contained treatment of the philosophical foundations of the theory of relativity. It also surveys the most essential mathematical techniques and concepts that are indispensable to an understanding of the foundations of both the special and general theories of relativity. In short,... more...

#### Relativity Demystified

McGraw-Hill Education 2005; US$ 23.00In Relativity Demystified a physicist explains Einstein's theory of relativity in layman's terms, minus heavy-duty discussion or formal mathematics. Author David McMahon gradually builds up readers' practical skills to a point where they can eventually solve real problems in the field of general relativity. The book offers examples that vary in... more...

#### Relativity and the Dimensionality of the World

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 179.00All 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...

#### Relativity and Geometry

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Relativity and Geometry aims to elucidate the motivation and significance of the changes in physical geometry brought about by Einstein, in both the first and the second phases of relativity. The book contains seven chapters and a mathematical appendix. The first two chapters review a historical background of relativity. Chapter 3 centers on Einstein's... more...

#### Relativity and the Nature of Spacetime

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 79.95This book develops a thorough analysis of relativistic effects to address the question of what is the nature (the ontological status) of spacetime. In this new edition, arguments are strengthened, and new developments in the field are presented and integrated. more...

#### Relativity for Everyone

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 29.99This book explains the theory of special and general relativity in detail. It replaces lengthy calculations with figures and thought experiments, this allows readers to understand the essentials of the topic even if they can not follow all the calculations. more...

#### SCALE RELATIVITY AND FRACTAL SPACE-TIME

World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 137.00This 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...

#### The Sky at Einstein's Feet

Springer New York 2006; US$ 34.95Specifically traces the impact of Einstein's ideas on astronomy, including the way we interpret observations of stars and galaxies. Includes comments from principals in important discoveries, illuminating the processes behind these results. Presents many applications of relativity that have not been shown in earlier popular-level books and illustrates... more...

#### Some Comments on the Foundations of Physics

World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 23.00This pedagogical monograph describes some of the fundamental laws of physics. The derivations are, however, obtained from a rather unconventional point of view. The Lorentz transformations and the special theory of relativity are derived without mentioning the phenomenon of light, and the de Broglie relations in the wave–corpuscle parallelism... more...

#### Some new theories about time and space

Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2003; US$ 199.00This 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...
