Popularizer of science Michio Kaku has made an attempt to explain the current view of sub-atomic particle physics to the science-interested layman in the book "Beyond Einstein," and I think he succeeds for the most part. There are a few failed attempts at explaining crucial concepts, but overall the book is lucid and logically by: In Relativity: The Special and the General Theory, Einstein describes the theories that made him famous, illuminating his case with numerous examples and a smattering of math Einsteins Relativity and Beyond book more complex than high-school algebra)/5().

This book clearly and succinctly outlines Einstein's theory of relativity. It allows you to see the impact of space-time in the real and observable world.

The brilliance of Einstein's thinking is a joy to behold. He puts so much of the universe into a theory which over time and beyond his lifetime is being shown be accurate.4/5(). Relativity is Einstein's attempt to explain Special and General Relativity to a general audience.

He states at the beginning of the book that he's trying to keep it concise and at a level where most people should be able to understand the small amounts of mathematics he uses/5. New Subtle Atomics physics is resolving long standing problems with Einstein's theory of relativity tby recognising that nuclear decay rate varies with background energy flux.

According to the theory of relativity, action at a distance with the Einsteins Relativity and Beyond book of light always takes the place of instantaneous action at a distance or of action at a distance with an in- finite velocity of transmission.

This is connected with the fact that the velocity c plays a funda. Einstein then spent 10 years trying to include acceleration in the theory and published his theory of general relativity in In it, he determined that massive objects cause a distortion in.

To be honest I imagine that self-learning relativity to be quite difficult. Relativity: The Special and the General Theory began as a short paper and was eventually published as a book written by Albert Einstein with the aim of giving 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.

It also discusses the ramifications of general relativity. InEinstein published his theory of general relativity. In it he pro-vided a new theory of gravitation that included Newton’s theory as a spe-cial case.

Experimental confirmation of this theory in brought Ein-stein world fame. His earlier theory of is now called the theory of special relativity, since it excluded accelerations.

Reprint of First English Edition. First English translation of Einstein's theory of relativity.

InBritish astronomer Arthur Stanley Eddington was fascinated with Einstein’s new theory of general relativity. The theory talks about how forces push and pull objects in space. Einstein said that the sun’s gravity could pull and bend light.

To test this, astronomers decided to photograph a solar eclipse. This book is a collection of papers by Lorentz, Einstein, Minkowski and Weyl that laid the foundation of the Special and General Theory of Relativity. Collecting these papers in a book give the reader an appreciation from what problems and ideas the theory developed, instead of getting it ready-made in a modern textbook/5.
