A book by Robert Resnick. 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.

Hartle's "Gravity" is a textbook for learning general relativity. On the back cover of the book, there are a lot of praises for the book from famous physicists including Stephen Hawking's.

Overall, I enjoyed the book and the reading was beneficial. The book contains Cited by: `Ray d'Inverno's Introducing Einstein's Relativity seems to have done a wonderful job of taming what many undergraduates consider a ferocious course.

The book has a large, reader-friendly format, with a lot of illustrations. Important equations are highlighted in boxes and the reader does notCited by: Nov 21, · However, such an aether leaves the spacetime of Special Relativity almost intact and is a complex merger of the material and geometrical that would be unrecognised by 19th century theorists.

Intended Audience. This book presents special relativity (SR) from first principles and logically arrives at. Introduction to Relativity is intended to teach physics and astronomy majors at the freshman, sophomore or upper-division levels how to think about special and general relativity in a fundamental, but accessible, way.

Designed to render any reader a "master of relativity", everything on the subject is comprehensible and derivable from first principles.

Jul 22, · 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. To be honest I imagine that self-learning relativity to be quite difficult.

Schutz, B., A First Course in Generaly Relativity. Schutz's book is a really nice introduction to GR, suitable for undergraduates who've had a bit of linear algebra and are willing to spend some time thinking about the math he develops. Jan 01, · What is Relativity.

by Jeffrey Bennett is a nonfiction book that describes Einstein’s Theory of Relativity in a simple way. It goes over the main ideas of relativity and uses thought experiments to help readers understand them/5.

General relativity is now an essential part of undergraduate and graduate courses in physics, astrophysics and applied mathematics. This simple, user-friendly introduction to relativity is ideal for a first course in the subject. Beginning with a comprehensive but simple review of special relativity, the book creates a framework from which to launch the ideas of general relativity.

In Introduction to Relativity, physics teacher and researcher Bill McGlinn explains the fundamental concepts of Einstein's special and general theories of relativity. He describes the basic consequences of special relativity—length contraction and time dilation—and the enigma of the twin paradox, as well as the Doppler shift of light.3/5(1).

General relativity is a theory of gravitation that was developed by Albert Einstein between and According to general relativity, the observed gravitational effect between masses results from their warping of spacetime.

By the beginning of the 20th century, Newton's law of universal gravitation had been accepted for more than two hundred years as a valid description of the. General relativity is a beautiful scheme for describing the gravitational ﬂeld and the equations it obeys.

Nowadays this theory is often used as a prototype for other, more intricate constructions to describe forces between elementary particles or other branches of fundamental physics.

This is why in an introduction to general relativity it is of. The general theory of relativity, together with the necessary parts of the theory of invariants, is dealt with in the author’s book Die Grundlagen der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie (The Foundations of the General Theory of Relativity) — Joh.

Ambr. Barth, ; this book assumes some familiarity with the special theory of relativity. The book is a brief description of the relativity theory proposed by Dr. Albert Einstein. The introduction of curved space reality within the realm of classical physics came as a severe blow to the most fundamental concept of gravity that revolutionized the whole world/5.

General relativity (GR) is a theory of gravitation that was developed by Albert Einstein between and According to general relativity, the observed gravitational attraction between masses results from the warping of space and time by those masses.
