Albert Einstein 5 Preface (December, ) 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 Cited by: dations for quantum theory and earning him the Nobel prize (relativity being too controversial then). Einstein wrote two theories of relativity; the work is known as “special relativity” because it deals only with the special case of uniform (i.e. non-accelerating) motion. In he published his “general theory of relativity.

This book discusses in detail the special theory of relativity without including all the instruments of theoretical physics, enabling readers who are not budding theoretical physicists to develop competence in the field. An arbitrary but fixed inertial system is chosen, where the known velocity of light is measured. 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.

Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity Øyvind Grłn and Sigbjłrn Hervik. Contents Preface xv Notation xvii I INTRODUCTION: NEWTONIAN PHYSICS AND SPECIAL RELATIVITY 1 1 Relativity Principles and Gravitation 3 2 The Special Theory of Relativity While Lorentz failed to discover this relativity due to his belief in Newton's theory and the "true time"! Einstein explained relativity, the speed of light, time and space along with the Lorentz transformation in this short book. A must read for anyone who would like to know time, space and relativity/5(13).
