Einstein's Theory by Oyvind Gron

Book Description

This book provides an introduction to the theory of relativity and the mathematics used in its processes. Three elements of the book make it stand apart from previously published books on the theory of relativity. First, the book starts at a lower mathematical level than standard books with tensor calculus of sufficient maturity to make it possible to give detailed calculations of relativistic predictions of practical experiments. Self-contained introductions are given, for example vector calculus, differential calculus and integrations. Second, in-between calculations have been included, making it possible for the non-technical reader to follow step-by-step calculations. Thirdly, the conceptual development is gradual and rigorous in order to provide the inexperienced reader with a philosophically satisfying understanding of the theory. The goal of this book is to provide the reader with a sound conceptual understanding of both the special and general theories of relativity, and gain an insight into how the mathematics of the theory can be utilized to calculate relativistic effects.

Einstein's Jewish Science by Steven Gimbel Einstein's Jewish Science by Steven Gimbel

Is relativity Jewish? The Nazis denigrated Albert Einstein's revolutionary theory by calling it "Jewish science," a charge typical of the ideological excesses of Hitler and his followers. This title explores the many meanings of this provocative phrase and considers whether there is any sense in which Einstein's theory of relativity is Jewish.

Primordial Space by Bernd Schmeikal Primordial Space by Bernd Schmeikal

In this volume of Primordial Space it is explained how unpredictable quanta of the strong and electroweak force can bring forth both a macro-space-time as we perceive it and a pattern of material phenomena with which we have been familiarized by the standard model of particle physics.
