THE PROBLEM WITH RELATIVITY This book overturns the special theory of relativity by making two simple changes in experimental design and asking a question which has never been asked before. The special theory responds to these changes by disproving itself. The book contains almost problems and solutions in the fields of special relativity, general relativity, gravitation, relativistic astrophysics, and cosmology. Emphasis is placed on computable results, predictions, and models for material phenomena in the real universe. The problems deal with special-relativistic kinematics, dynamics, coordinate transformations, invariants, and tensors Cited by: Press and Teukolsky are coauthors in the Numerical Recipes book series. "This book is a classic and easily the best way for students learning general relativity to get experience doing problems. A wide variety of topics are covered and extensive solutions are given to the insightfully formulated exercises. Important and useful to every student of relativity, this book is a unique collection of some problems--with solutions--in the fields of special and general relativity, gravitation, 5/5(1).
Problem Book in Relativity and Gravitation Princeton University Press, In print, ISBN X; list price $ (paperback) Since the only way to learn a mathematical theory is by doing problems, the more the merrier, this book is an invaluable resource for serious students.

Posted on Febru by Sean Carroll If I were ever to publish a second edition of Spacetime and Geometry — unlikely, but check back in another ten years — one thing I would like to do would be to increase the number of problems . 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/5. The aim of this book is to introduce people without a strong physics (or even scientific) background to the special and general theories of relativity - theories that Einstein was the primary developer of/5.
This book is a treatise on time and on background independence in physics. It first considers how time is conceived of in each accepted paradigm of physics: Newtonian, special relativity, quantum mechanics (QM) and general relativity (GR). Substantial differences are moreover uncovered. Gravitation and Relativity - 1st Edition International Series in Natural Philosophy, Volume Gravitation and Relativity provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of the theories of gravitation.

The surmounting of this standpoint resulted from a development which, in the first place, appeared to have nothing to do with the problem of space-time, namely, the appearance of the concept of field and its final claim to replace, in principle, the idea of a particle (material point).
