To be honest I imagine that self-learning relativity to be quite difficult. The General Theory of Relativity is, as the name indicates, a generalization of the Special Theory of Relativity. It is certainly one of the most remarkable achievements of science to date, it was developed by Einstein with little or no experimental motivation but driven instead by philosophical questions.

General Relativity (Wald) Wald's text is a classic and undoubtedly one of the most familiar text in general cheathamhillelementary.com is concise, lucid as well as mathematically rigorous. It starts with basic concepts of differential geometry and then explains general relativity using the geometric viewpoint.

(b) place relativity theory in the context of physics at large, (c) contain important milestones in the history of relativity theory. I'll begin with several books in the Schaum's outline series, which, if read with discipline, can actually be a very effective way, I think, to learn some problem-solving skills.

This popular book is downloaded over 40 times per year and guarantees to be captivating and surprising on every page. First, the book introduces special relativity in a simple way. What does "relativity" mean. This is an introduction to Einstein's theories of special and general relativity.

This text makes relativity particularly easy and. For years, the general theory of relativity has been a pillar of modern physics. The basic idea is so elegant that you don’t need superpowers to understand it. Begin with Isaac Newton’s first law of motion: An object remains in uniform motion unless acted on by a force.

That means if you feel no force you’ll either sit still or glide. Oct 28, · The book walks the reader through the development of the special and general theories of relativity and the supporting theories they were built upon. Starting with the special theory and its limited applicability and the later development of the more universal general theory, aimed at covering the deficiencies of the former/5(98).

This book applies neutrosophic method to the General Theory of Relativity, aiming to discover new effects hidden before. ( views) An Introduction to the Theory of Rotating Relativistic Stars by Eric Gourgoulhon - arXiv, These notes introduce the theory of rotating stars in general relativity.

This book is divided into three parts. The first part explains what special relativity is all about. The second part discusses general relativity thoroughly and the last part deals with the considerations of the universe as a whole.

The first part explains the principles of the special theory of relativity.4/5(1). Einstein's theory of general relativity predicted that the space-time around Earth would be not only warped but also twisted by the planet's rotation. In contrast, his general theory of relativity accounts not only for these, but also for bodies that accelerate (i.e., change their velocity).

Einstein began his theory with a thought experiment--that is, an experiment carried out only in the mind of the experimenter. General Theory of Relativity deals with the general theory of relativity and covers topics ranging from the principle of equivalence and the space-theory of matter to the hypotheses which lie at the bases of geometry, along with the effect of gravitation on the propagation of light.
