The Meaning of Relativity book. In reading this book it is clear that Einstein was able to live in a world governed by the Maxwell-Morey equations long before others did so, and his realization of their implications for classical physics gave him an advantage when it came to envisioning and describing and justifying a radically different conception of the world than the world of Newtonian physics that.

PRINCETON UNIVERSITY, MAY, 1921. PRINTED IN GREAT BRITAIN. AT THE ABERDEEN UNIVERSITY PRESS. The translation of these lectures into English was made by Edwin Plimpton Adams, Professor of Physics in Princeton University.

In 1921, five years after the appearance of his comprehensive paper on general relativity and twelve years before he left Europe permanently to join the Institute for Advanced Study, Albert Einstein visited Princeton University, where he delivered the Stafford Little Lectures for that year. These four lectures constituted an overview of his then controversial theory of relativity.

AUTHOR: Einstein, Albert, 1879–1955. 1920, Translated by Robert W. Lawson. Part 1 - The Special Theory. Physical Meaning of Geometrical Propositions. IN your schooldays most of you who read this book made acquaintance with the noble building of Euclid’s geometry, and you remember-perhaps with more respect than love-the magnificent structure, on the lofty staircase of which you were chased about for uncounted hours by conscientious teachers.

Book: Relativity: The Special and General Theory Author: Albert Einstein, 1879–1955 First published: 1920. The original book is in the public domain in the United States. HE present book is intended, as far as pos-sible, 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 1 of theoretical physics.

PDF In November 1915 Albert Einstein explained a radically new world view to the Prussian Academy of Sciences with the General Theory of Relativity. The effects of relativity occur only at high. speeds, at velocities comparable to the speed of light: time. increases, scales shorten, and the mass of the moving object.

Originally published in 1922, this volume is based on four lectures delivered at Princeton University. It gives further explanation of the famous theory and its developments.
  • Like quantum theory everyone agrees on the mathematical equations of relativity, however there is wide disagreement on what it means physically especially among philosophers of science. Therefore, it is important to read Einstein's actual words on his own theory. The discovery of dark matter has raised some questions on whether Einstein's original theory is complete. Does it need some new like torsion field for example in addition to the curvature field. Then, there is the issue of quantum corrections. However, Reading Einstein himself is the best way to understand the physical meeting of the theories especially if you are an engineer or an experimental physicist.

  • Book was received but the binding is horrible. I was going to give the book to my son but the pages were falling out.

  • The book not like most other books by Einstein. The book is based 80%-90% on formulas. No real substance is given except the math.
    So I can understand this book better, I just order a Precalc book, Calc I & 2, Linear Algebra, Euclidian Geometry, as a starter. I will probably hire a tutor to help me through all of this and PERHAPS, I can get a glimpse of what is being said.

  • BEWARE!!!! This item is falsely represented as containing an inscription by Albert Einstein!!! The description currently being displayed with this item states:

    'Inscribed by the author on free front endpaper "To Mr. Yandell
    Wordfin A. Einstein .53" There are remains from a stain, where
    a label has been removed from the backstrip. books inscribed by
    Einstein are very uncommon. Cloth. Pincdeton, 1950

    I purchased this item on the basis of the above representation, only to find that the book I received had no inscription by Albert Einstein whatsoever. While the above description may have applied to a copy of this book previously sold on Amazon.com, it no longer applies and should be deleted.

  • great

  • This is an almost complete description of Einstein thoughts and motivations into special and general relativity along with some extra material about tensors and finally Einstein's thoughts on grand unification...
    My opinion is that the book has large historical value along with some deep philosophical insights
    The only minus is that mathematical formalism is out of date(along with some ideas) and surely this is not the best book to learn relativity,but can serve as an exceptional supplement for deep understanding of the subject

  • There is no better source that the Master himself. This is a wonderful little book in which Einstein supplies his own outlook on the theory which he created single-handedly. This is an essential read for anyone wanting to understand relativity. This book does not give a detailed treatment of the theory, but provides deep insights into its foundations and significance. Very strongly recommended.

  • If you want to understand this book, you had better understand tensor calculus or you will be lost. I had to purchase a book on tensor calculus to get through it. Be ready to struggle through the math, but it will be worth it since you will learn new ideas . Tensor calculus is not easy, but worth it. Relativity math is not easy.
