In this book Einstein explains, using the minimum of mathematical terms, the basic ideas and principles of the theory which has shaped the world we live in today.

Unsurpassed by any subsequent books on relativity, this remains the most popular and useful exposition of Einstein's immense contribution to human knowledge/5(91). 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.

The completed formulation of the General Theory of Relativity was pub-lished in (Fig.

Figure Einstein’s General Theory of File Size: 1MB. Einstein's general theory of relativity requires a curved space for the description of the physical world. If one wishes to go beyond superficial discussions of the physical relations involved, one needs to set up Relativity: the general theory book equations for handling curved space.

The well-established mathematical technique that accomplishes this is clearly described in this classic book by Nobel Laureate P.A.M. Dirac.4/5(6). Page Relativity: the general theory book ACCORDING to the general theory of relativity, the geometrical properties of space are not independent, but they are determined by matter.

Thus we can draw conclusions about the geometrical structure of the universe only if we base our considerations on the 4/5(12). A super-quick, super-painless guide to the theory that conquered the universe. For years, the general theory of relativity has been a pillar of modern physics.

The basic idea is so elegant that you don’t need superpowers to understand it. Begin with Isaac Newton’s first law of motion: An object remains in uniform motion unless acted on.

The first chapters of the book on the general theory of relativity are easy to approach even for those with no background in physics, featuring only little math and easy to relate to examples.

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.

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. Gravitation by Charles Misner, Kip Thorne, and John Wheeler, is pretty much the authoritative reference on general relativity (to the extent that one exists).

It discusses many aspects and applications of the theory in far more mathematical and logical detail than any other book I've seen. (Consequently, it's very thick.) I would recommend.

The motion of particles in general relativity theory is also discussed. This book is comprised of 14 chapters and begins with a review of the principle of equivalence, paying particular attention to the question of the existence of inertial frames in Newtonian mechanics.

Einstein's general theory of relativity requires a curved space for the description of the physical world. If one wishes to go beyond superficial discussions of the physical relations involved, one needs to set up precise equations for handling curved space/5.

This book is a greatly-expanded version of Sean Carroll's earlier "Lecture Notes on General Relativity," which can still be acquired online, for free, from a page on his current website. He notes that about half of the book is newer than the lecture notes, that much of the material in the lecture notes was "polished and improved" when the book.

Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity: With Modern Applications in Cosmology by Oyvind Gron and Sigbjorn Hervik is about gravity and the concept of gravity as Albert Einstein saw it- curved spaces, four-dimensional manifolds and geodesics.

The book starts with the 1 st principals of relativity and an introduction to Einstein’s field. This book is divided into three parts. The first part explains what special relativity is all about.

The second part discusses general relativity thoroughly and the last part deals with the considerations of the universe as a whole. The first part explains the principles of the special theory of relativity.4/5(1). Book Excerpt that differences of opinion are scarcely likely to arise as to its applicability in practice.

*** A refinement and modification of these views does not become necessary until we come to deal with the general theory of relativity, treated in the second part of this book.3/5(3). From the reviews: “Einstein’s Theory fits in an unusual place for introductory books on the topic. this work reaches the mathematical, theoretical, and conceptual understanding of a graduate course, assuming just basic algebraic skills.

this is a rare book that can take the motivated reader with an elementary algebra background to a rigorous understanding of general relativity. In the words of Einstein: 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.
