Relativity (Physics)

  • Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines, Second Editionby Jim Al-Khalili

    CRC Press 2016; US$ 44.95

    Bringing the material up to date, Black Holes, Wormholes and Time Machines, Second Edition captures the new ideas and discoveries made in physics since the publication of the best-selling first edition. While retaining the popular format and style of its predecessor, this edition explores the latest developments in high-energy astroparticle physics... more...

  • Tensors, Relativity, and Cosmologyby Mirjana Dalarsson; Nils Dalarsson

    Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 125.00

    Tensors, Relativity, and Cosmology, Second Edition, combines relativity, astrophysics, and cosmology in a single volume, providing a simplified introduction to each subject that is followed by detailed mathematical derivations. The book includes a section on general relativity that gives the case for a curved space-time, presents the mathematical... more...

  • The Far Horizons of Timeby H. Chris Ransford

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 0.00

    The book raises and resolves specific questions in the physics of time, such as how and why someone can be simultaneous with events that are in fact days apart. It examines further abiding issues in the physics of time, and suggests that such phenomena can only exist because they ultimately obey applicable mathematics. This leads to a... more...

  • Relativityby Roger B. Angel; Mario Bunge

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    Relativity: 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 and Geometryby Roberto Torretti; Mario Bunge

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95

    Relativity 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...

  • What Is Relativity?by Jeffrey Bennett

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 17.99

    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...

  • Einstein's Juryby Jeffrey Crelinsten

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 27.95 US$ 25.43

    Einstein's Jury is the dramatic story of how astronomers in Germany, England, and America competed to test Einstein's developing theory of relativity. Weaving a rich narrative based on extensive archival research, Jeffrey Crelinsten shows how these early scientific debates shaped cultural attitudes we hold today. The book... more...

  • Space-Time Symmetry and Quantum Yang - Mills Gravityby Jong-Ping Hsu; Leonardo Hsu

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 78.00 US$ 70.98

    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...

  • Relativity for Everyoneby Kurt Fischer

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 26.40

    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...
