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...

Almost from its inception, Einstein's general theory of relativity was known to sanction spacetime models harboring singularities, which involve a breakdown in the very fabric of space and time and, consequently, a failure of the known laws of physics. Here is where noted philosopher of science John Earman begins this first book-length study of a phenomenon... more...

There is no physical law to prevent time travel nothing in physics to say it is impossible. So who is to say it can't be done? In Build Your Own Time Machine, acclaimed science writer Brian Clegg takes inspiration from his childhood heroes, Doctor Who and H. G. Wells, to explain the nature of time. How do we understand it and why measure it the way... more...

Die Spezielle Relativitätstheorie steht und fällt mit der universellen Konstanz der Lichtgeschwindigkeit. Darauf gründet die Einstein-Minkowski-Axiomatik, die wegen ihrer grundsätzlichen Bedeutung in keinem Lehrbuch zur Theoretischen Physik fehlen darf. Hier soll außerdem auf eine zweite, unabhängige, aber vollkommen äquivalente axiomatische Darstellung... more...
