#### The Far Horizons of Time

De Gruyter 2015; US$ 0.00What is Time? Assuming no prior specialized knowledge by the reader, the book raises specific, hitherto overlooked questions about how time works, such as how and why anyone can be made to be, at the very same instant, simultaneous with events that are actually days apart. It examines abiding issues in the physics of time or at its periphery... 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...

#### What Is Relativity?

Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 17.99It 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 Jury

Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 27.95 US$ 25.43Einstein'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 examines Einstein's... more...

#### Space-Time Symmetry and Quantum Yang - Mills Gravity

World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 78.00 US$ 70.98Yang–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 Everyone

Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 29.18This book explains the theory of special and general relativity in detail.
