Relativity (94 Books)


The theory of relativity, or simply relativity, encompasses two theories of Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity. However, the word relativity is sometimes used in reference to Galilean invariance.

Sidelights on Relativity

By: Albert Einstein

Excerpt: How does it come about that alongside of the idea of ponderable matter, which is derived by abstraction from everyday life, the physicists set the idea of the existence of another kind of matter, the ether? The explanation is probably to be sought in those phenomena which have given rise to the theory of action at a distance, and in the properties of light which have led to the undulatory theory. Let us devote a little while to the consideration of these two subjects.

Relativity : The Special and General Theory

By: Albert Einstein

Preface: (December, 1916) The present book is intended, as far as possible, 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. The work presumes a standard of education corresponding to that of a university matriculation examination, and, despite the shortness of the book, a f...

ETHER AND THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY. An Address delivered on May 5th, 1920, in the University of Leyden How does it come about that alongside of the idea of ponderable matter, which is derived by abstraction from everyday life, the physicists set the idea of the existence of another kind of matter, the ether? The explanation is probably to be sought in those phenomena which have given rise to the theory of action at a distance, and in the properties of light which have le...

Process Physics: From Quantum Foam to General Relativity

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: Progress in the new information-theoretic process physics is reported in which the link to the phenomenology of general relativity is made. In process physics the fundamental assumption is that reality is to be modeled as self-organizing semantic (or internal or relational) information using a self-referentially limited neural network model. Previous progress in process physics included the demonstration that space and quantum physics are emergent and unified, ...

General Relativity and Cosmology for Undergraduates

By: Professor John W. Norbury

Physics Literature

Introduction: Many of the modern ideas in cosmology can be explained without the need to discuss General Relativity. The present chapter represents an attempt to do this based entirely on Newtonian mechanics. The equations describing the velocity (called the Friedmann equation) and acceleration of the universe are derived from Newtonian mechanics and also the cosmological constant is introduced within a Newtonian framework. The equations of state are also derived in a ve...
