      I would recommend two books. For a fun, easy non-mathematical read that will give you an intuitive grasp of special relativity, I would recommend Mr. Tompkins in Wonderland by George Gamow. Written in the late ’s, it explores the life of Mr. T.   Most of them are pretty elderly. Taylor and Wheeler is good, but not all that mathematical. It is designed for people who have had intro physics only. Still, it is a good reference. Rindler is the classic (Intro to Special Relativity). Most modern.

      What is Relativity? by Jeffrey Bennett is a nonfiction book that describes Einsteins Theory of Relativity in a simple way. It goes over the main ideas of relativity and uses thought experiments to help readers understand them/5.   Time's 'Man of the Century', Albert Einstein is the unquestioned founder of modern physics. His theory of relativity is the most important scientific idea of the modern era. In this short book Einstein explains, using the minimum of mathematical terms, the basic ideas and principles of the theory which has shaped the world we live in today.

The Mathematics of Relativity for the Rest of Us treats topics such as: The constant speed of light, the invariant laws of physics, the basis and meaning of the equation E = mc2, the nature of curved four-dimensional space-time, the importance of non-Euclidean geometry, the gravitational bending of light, experimental confirmation of relativity, the philosophical and intellectual appeal of relativity, the nature of black holes /5(26).

This book is exactly what the title says, a revised edition of "The mathematics of relativity for the rest of us".Apart from an updated introduction of the relationship between relativity and quantum mechanics including the Higgs boson, the major difference is the title/5(3).

The Mathematics of Relativity for the Rest of Us provides a detailed explanation of relativity, particularly its mathematics, designed for the non-professional audience.

The subject is developed from basic principles and observations in physics and mathematics, starting with algebra and geometry as taught in thorough high school courses. Theory of Relativity for the Rest of Us but not for Dummies: Theory of Relativity Simplified - Kindle edition by Thomas, James.

Download it once and read it on your Kindle device, PC, phones or tablets. Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Theory of Relativity for the Rest of Us but not for Dummies: Theory of Relativity Simplified/5(15). The Mathematics of Relativity for the Rest of Us is intended to give the generally educated reader a thorough and factual understanding of Einstein's theory of relativity - including the difficult mathematical concepts, even if the reader is not trained in higher mathematics.

From the Back Cover. Based on the ideas of Einstein and Minkowski, this concise treatment is derived from the author's many years of teaching the mathematics of relativity at the University of Michigan.

Geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students of physics, the text covers old physics, new geometry, special relativity, curved space, Cited by: 4.

The Mathematics of Relativity for the Rest of Us Dr. Louis Jagerman M.D. As you may have noticed it is written by an M.D. and not a physicist. Don't let that throw you off, I've had a few professors recommend this book to me because it does explain relativity in a very clear way. Einstein when nally realizing the theory of relativity.

Today the the necessary tools and knowledge are available that the special theory of relativity can be understood with little work. But before delving into the mathematics which lay before us, we should look at those who helped develop this theory; to understand their thoughts, theirFile Size: KB.

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. And although Claire complained about his clothes and Lego scattered about the house, she needed them there to punctuate her existence/5. The mathematics of general relativity are complex. In Newton's theories of motion, an object's length and the rate at which time passes remain constant while the object accelerates, meaning that many problems in Newtonian mechanics may be solved by algebra alone.

In relativity, however, an object's length and the rate at which time passes both change appreciably as the object's speed approaches. This book goes through the math of relativity step by step in a clear manner. The author doesn't skip steps by assuming you already know them which can be aggravating to someone who isn't a physicist or mathematics major.

In fact he explains the math of relativity 4/5(21). Curvature in Mathematics and Physics (), by Shlomo Sternberg, based on an earlier book Semi-Riemann Geometry and General Relativity [free download from the author's website] covers much of the same material as O'Neill but is much more recent.

This original text for courses in differential geometry is geared toward advanced undergraduate and graduate majors in math and physics. This is a great book for a basic understanding of the mathematics of relativity.

In particular, it is the best comprehensive guide to mathematics in short form that I have seen, from algebra through calculus to tensors/5. Full Description: "This is a book about physics, written for mathematicians. The readers we have in mind can be roughly described as those who: I.

are mathematics graduate students with some knowledge of global differential geometry 2. have had the equivalent of freshman physics, and find popular accounts of astrophysics and cosmology interesting 3. appreciate mathematical elarity, but are.

Einstein's theory of relativity. The reader is assumed to have but little mathematical knowledge. Topics covered includes: Geometry and Cosmology, The Fundamental Laws of Classical Mechanics, The Newtonian World-System, The Fundamental Laws of Optics, The Fundamental Laws of Electrodynamics and Einstein's Special Principle of Relativity.

It was riddled with math that was way above my understanding and has very little conceptual explanations about Relativity. If you want a better understanding of relativity, look elsewhere. If you want to be blown away by Einstein's genius, skim through this book/5.

TensorsEdit. The principle of general covariance states that the laws of physics should take the same mathematical form in all reference frames and was one of the central principles in the development of general relativity. The term 'general covariance' was used in the early formulation of general relativity.

An accesible version of Einstein's masterpiece of theory, written by the genius himself According to Einstein himself, this book is intended "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/5.

I have been trying to understand the theory of relativity for some time but have been unsuccessful. This book really helped, giving understandable examples to explain the general concepts. Ah ha I finally understand the idea of reference points that really is the basis for the theory of relativity/5(13).The Nobel Prize-winning scientist's presentation of his landmark theory According to Einstein himself, this book is intended "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."Cited by: Mathematics of general relativity From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The mathematics of general relativity refers to various mathematical structures and techniques that are used in studying and formulating Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity.

The main tools used in this geometrical theory of gravitation are tensor fields.
