The present book is intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics/5(). A handsome annotated edition of Einstein’s celebrated book on relativity. After completing the final version of his general theory of relativity in November , Albert Einstein wrote ed for a popular audience, the book remains one of the most lucid explanations of the special and general theories ever written.5/5(2).

Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted that the space-time around Earth would be not only warped but also twisted by the planet's rotation. Gravity Probe B showed this to be correct. In. Along with quantum mechanics in the s, Einstein s Special Theory of Relativity () and General Theory of Relativity () stand as the supreme achievements of twentieth-century physics. In simplest terms, the theory of Relativity is an approach to the measurement and study of space and time.

The Geometry of Minkowski Spacetime: An Introduction to the Mathematics of the Special Theory of Relativity. Springer-Verlag, In print, ISBN ; list price $ (hardcover) This book is devoted to a rigorous mathematical treatment of the flat Minkowski spacetime of special relativity. The book walks the reader through the development of the special and general theories of relativity and the supporting theories they were built upon. Starting with the special theory and its limited applicability and the later development of the more universal general theory, /5(K).

That’s where Einstein’s general theory of relativity comes in, because it can explain the general case of any sort of motion. Einstein’s theory was based on two key principles: The principle of relativity: The laws of physics don’t change, even for objects moving in inertial (constant speed) frames of reference.

There is an old book by Max Born, called Einstein's Theory of Relativity which explains the Special Relativity in great detail without any advanced mathematics and a little bit of General Relativity. It is suitable for those who has not yet started to physics degree or will not, but would like to understand the theory in a deeper and mathematical manner.

The General Theory of Relativity The General Theory of Relativity is, as the name indicates, a generalization of the Special Theory of Relativity. It is certainly one of the most remarkable achievements of science to date, it was developed by Einstein with little or no experimental motivation but driven instead by philosophical questions:File Size: 1MB.

Thus we can draw conclusions about the geometrical structure of the universe only if we base our considerations on the 4/5(12). The book walks the reader through the development of the special and general theories of relativity and the supporting theories they were built upon.

There are a great number of really excellent books on relativity, but no particular book is good for everyone: the reader is as important as that which is being read.

Find books like Relativity: The Special and the General Theory from the world’s largest community of readers. The Special and the General Theory Relativity: The Special and the General Theory Ever since Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity burst upon the world in some of the most brilliant minds of our century have.

Special and General relativity explain the structure of space time and provide a theory of gravitation, respectively. Einstein’s theories shocked the world with their counterintuitive results, including the dissolution of absolute time. In this book he brings a simplified form of his profound understanding of the subject to the layperson/5(62).

Then, at the end ofhe published a small book entitled On the Special and the General Theory of Relativity, Generally Comprehensible. This work was written with as little mathematics as possible and was designed to appeal to an even broader readership, albeit one still somewhat educated in mathematics or physics.

There is no doubt that Albert Einstein has been one of the most brilliant minds of the past century. His major contribution to science was the special and the general theory of relativity, which gave a new dimension to that we call today "Modern Physics".Cited by: About this Item: Rupa, Soft cover.
