RELATIVITY (Illustrated Special and General Relativity) By Albert EINSTEIN

Albert Einstein [Germany] (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics... More > (alongside quantum mechanics). While best known for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"), he received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect". This 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 point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. The work presumes a standard of education corresponding to that of a university matriculation examination, and, despite the shortness of the book, a fair amount of patience and force of will on the part of the reader.< Less
The Wave Basis of Special Relativity By Robert Close
eBook (ePub): $9.99

This book explains not only how Special Relativity (SR) works, but also WHY it works. SR does not require the postulates you will find in other books. Instead, the laws of SR can be deduced from the... More > experimental observation that matter behaves like waves (see the animation “Underwater Relativity”). The Lorentz transformations apply to measurements made with waves even if those waves propagate in ordinary Galilean space-time. That is why Lorentz-invariant equations derived from classical models are consistent with SR. Examples include MacCullagh’s equation for light waves and Maxwell’s equations for electromagnetism. This book utilizes a simplified model of matter consisting of waves propagating in circles in order to explain how physical quantities transform due to relative motion. The straightforward logic and elegance of this approach is a pleasant alternative to the usual plug-and-chug presentation of relativity.< Less

How better to learn the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity than directly from their creator, Albert Einstein himself? In Relativity: The Special and the General Theory,... More > Einstein describes the theories that made him famous, illuminating his case with numerous examples and a smattering of math (nothing more complex than high-school algebra). Einstein's book is not casual reading, but for those who appreciate his work without diving into the arcana of theoretical physics, Relativity will prove a stimulating read. "The present book is intended," Einstein wrote in 1916, "as far as possible, 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 theoretical physics."< Less

From the PREFACE: ""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... More > philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. The work presumes a standard of education corresponding to that of a university matriculation examination, and, despite the shortness of the book, a fair amount of patience and force of will on the part of the reader. The author has spared himself no pains in his endeavour to present the main ideas in the simplest and most intelligible form, and on the whole, in the sequence and connection in which they actually originated. In the interest of clearness, it appeared to me inevitable that I should repeat myself frequently, without paying the slightest attention to the elegance of the presentation." -Albert Einstein< Less
