Relativity and Its Roots

#ad
Dover Publications #ad - Starting with the geometrical and cosmological ideas of the ancient Greeks, the author traces the succession of ideas and advances that paved the way for modern physics, including the theories of Kepler and Newton, the work on electricity and magnetism by Faraday and Maxwell, Galilean mechanics, and many other relevant topics.

Complete with easily understood analogies and numerous instructive diagrams, this stimulating volume brings the complexities of relativity into focus for all readers, even for those with no math or science background. In this fascinating, accessible introduction to one of the most revolutionary developments in modern physics, Einstein scholar Banesh Hoffmann recounts the successive insights that led to both the special and general theories of relativity.

Relativity and Its Roots #ad - Using simple examples from everyday life, the author presents entertaining, nontechnical demonstrations of what relativity actually means and how it has revolutionized our ideas of time and space.

Einstein: His Life and Universe

#ad
Simon & Schuster #ad - These traits are just as vital for this new century of globalization, as they were for the beginning of the last century, in which our success will depend on our creativity, when Einstein helped usher in the modern age. This led him to embrace a morality and politics based on respect for free minds, free spirits, and free individuals.

His fascinating story is a testament to the connection between creativity and freedom. His success came from questioning conventional wisdom and marveling at mysteries that struck others as mundane. Based on newly released personal letters of einstein, impertinent patent clerk—a struggling father in a difficult marriage who couldn’t get a teaching job or a doctorate—became the mind reader of the creator of the cosmos, this book explores how an imaginative, the locksmith of the mysteries of the atom, and the universe.

Einstein: His Life and Universe #ad - By the author of the acclaimed bestsellers Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs, this is the definitive biography of Albert Einstein. By the author of the acclaimed bestsellers Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs, this is the definitive biography of Albert Einstein. How did his mind work? what made him a genius? Isaacson’s biography shows how his scientific imagination sprang from the rebellious nature of his personality.

Simply Einstein: Relativity Demystified

#ad
W. W. Norton & Company #ad - Relativity, gave us a new view of space and time, wolfson shows, opening the door to questions about their flexible nature: Is the universe finite or infinite? Will it expand forever or eventually collapse in a "big crunch"? Is time travel possible? What goes on inside a black hole? How does gravity really work? These questions at the forefront of twenty-first-century physics are all rooted in the profound and sweeping vision of Albert Einstein's early twentieth-century theory.

Wolfson leads his readers on an intellectual journey that culminates in a universe made almost unimaginably rich by the principles that Einstein first discovered. With this reader-friendly book, it doesn't take an Einstein to understand the theory of relativity and its remarkable consequences. Drawing from years of teaching modern physics to nonscientists, Wolfson explains in a lively, conversational style the simple principles underlying Einstein's theory.

Simply Einstein: Relativity Demystified #ad - In clear, curved space, understandable terms, physicist Richard Wolfson explores the ideas at the heart of relativity and shows how they lead to such seeming absurdities as time travel, black holes, and new meaning for the idea of past and future. By the author of the acclaimed bestsellers Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs, this is the definitive biography of Albert Einstein.

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality

#ad
Vintage #ad - By the author of the acclaimed bestsellers Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs, this is the definitive biography of Albert Einstein. Explaining space, time and the texture of reality. Is space an entity? why does time have a direction? could the universe exist without space and time? Can we travel to the past? Greene has set himself a daunting task: to explain non-intuitive, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, mathematical concepts like String Theory, and Inflationary Cosmology with analogies drawn from common experience.

Yet they remain among the most mysterious of concepts. From newton’s unchanging realm in which space and time are absolute, greene takes us all, regardless of our scientific backgrounds, to Einstein’s fluid conception of spacetime, to quantum mechanics’ entangled arena where vastly distant objects can instantaneously coordinate their behavior, on an irresistible and revelatory journey to the new layers of reality that modern physics has discovered lying just beneath the surface of our everyday world.

The Fabric of the Cosmos: Space, Time, and the Texture of Reality #ad - From brian greene, one of the world’s leading physicists and author of the Pulitzer Prize finalist The Elegant Universe, comes a grand tour of the universe that makes us look at reality in a completely different way. Space and time form the very fabric of the cosmos.

Eastland Press #ad - By the author of the acclaimed bestsellers Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs, this is the definitive biography of Albert Einstein. Explaining space, time and the texture of reality. Edwin f. More than 80 charts graphically illustrate the material in the case histories, and each chapter concludes with a diagnostic master chart.

Taylor and john Archibald Wheeler, Spacetime Physics, paperback. In each of the 40 illustrative case histories the authors provide a step-by-step method for applying the traditional Chinese diagnostic art of differentiation of patterns to these clinical problems. The book consists of nine series of cases, lower back pain, dizziness, wind-stroke, headache, each devoted to a type of disorder that is commonly seen in the acupuncture clinic: common cold, cough, painful obstruction bi, insomnia and palpitations.
