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...

This is the first detailed account of a new approach to microphysics based on two leading ideas: (i) the explicit dependence of physical laws on scale encountered in quantum physics, is the manifestation of a fundamental principle of nature, scale relativity. This generalizes Einstein's principle of (motion) relativity to scale transformations;... more...

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...

Time is considered as an independent entity which cannot be reduced to the concept of matter, space or field. The point of discussion is the “time flow” conception of N A Kozyrev (1908–1983), an outstanding Russian astronomer and natural scientist. In addition to a review of the experimental studies of “the active properties... more...

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the topics related to characterization, control and synchronization of complex spatiotemporal phenomena, from both a theoretical and an experimental point of view. It describes applications of these processes in applied mathematics, signal analysis, nonlinear optics, fluid dynamics, chemical reactions,... more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 1998; US$ 52.00
This 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...
- Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 27.21
This 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...

Yang–Mills gravity is a new theory, consistent with experiments, that brings gravity back to the arena of gauge field theory and quantum mechanics in flat space-time. It provides solutions to long-standing difficulties in physics, such as the incompatibility between Einstein's principle of general coordinate invariance and modern schemes... more...

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