I think this book grew out of some undergrad lectures Dirac delivered on GR; they are more designed to show what the hell theory is all about than to teach you how. 7 Must-Read Books on Time What the second law of thermodynamics has to do with Saint Augustine, landscape art, and graphic novels. law of thermodynamics to the Big Bang theory and the origins of the universe to quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity, Carroll weaves a lucid, enthusiastic, illuminating and refreshingly accessible.

As a modern textbook in the theory of relativity, this book is rare, in that its goal is to give the reader a conceptual introduction to the theory, and not just mathematical formalism.

The author also does not hesitate to include some philosophical argumentation wherever needed/5(3). Essential Relativity: Special, General, and Cosmological (Texts and Monographs in Physics) In retrospect, the first edition Essential Relativity book this book now seems like a mere sketch for a book.

The present version is, if not the final product, at least a closer approximation to it. The table of contents may show little change.4/5(2). Also the basic purpose of the book remains the same, and that is to make relativity come alive conceptually.

I have always felt much sym­ pathy with Richard Courant's maxim (as reported and exemplified by Pascual Jordan) that, ideally, proofs should.

This book is an attempt to bring the full range of relativity theory within reach of advanced undergraduates, while containing enough new material and simplifications of old arguments so as not to bore the expert teacher.

The present version is, if not the final product, at least a closer approximation to it. The table of contents may show little change.

But that is simply because the original organization of the material has been found satisfactory. Also the basic purpose of the book remains the same, and that is to make relativity come alive conceptually.

About the Author. Albert Einstein () was the modern world's greatest scientific superstar. A Nobel laureate, the author of the special and the general theories of relativity, and a key figure in the birth of quantum mechanics, Einstein was also a humanist fighter for peace and freedom/5(K).

The text follows the author's years of experience teaching an undergraduate course on the subject. The book nicely reflects his approach of the subject/5(29).

Philosophy and Relativity Theory. For a first book on the philosophical reaction to relativity, I'd recommend: Lawrence Sklar, Space, time, and spacetime.

$\begingroup$ I dearly want to love this book; it covers exactly what I’m looking for, and available as is a big draw. But it is riddled with errors. Some just slow my reading, but there are entire sections (e.g. Optical Images in SR) that I just can’t make sense of at all.

owing mostly to mistakenly primed/unprimed labels—obviously pretty important for a book on relativity. The present version is, if not the final product, at least a closer approximation to it.

The table of contents may show little change. But that is simply because the original organization of the material has been found satisfactory. Also the basic purpose of the book remains the same, and that is to make relativity come alive : $ According to Einstein himself, this book is intended "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 An accesible version of Einstein's masterpiece of theory, written by the genius himself/5.

Relativity is a book all about the different relationships within a family: those between husbands and wives, fathers and adult sons, parents and young children.

"But Ethan gave the vagueness of her life definition. And although Claire complained about his clothes and Lego scattered about the house, she needed them there to punctuate her existence/5.

This is a textbook on general relativity for upper-division undergraduates majoring in physics, at roughly the same level as Rindler's Essential Relativity or Hartle's book is meant to be especially well adapted for self-study, and answers are given in the back of the book for almost all the problems.Book Description.

Essential Dynamics & Relativity provides students with an introduction to the core aspects of dynamics and special relativity. The author reiterates important ideas and terms throughout and covers concepts that are often missing from other textbooks at this level.

Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology gives undergraduate students an overview of the fundamental ideas behind the geometric theory of gravitation and spacetime. Through pointers on how to modify and generalise Einstein's theory to enhance understanding, it provides a link between standard textbook content and current research in the field.
