The Far Horizons of Time: Time and Mind in the Universe
by H. Chris Ransford
Publisher: De Gruyter Open Ltd 2015
Number of pages: 112
What is Time? Assuming no prior specialized knowledge by the reader, the book raises specific, hitherto overlooked questions about how time works, such as how and why anyone can be made to be, at the very same instant, simultaneous with events that are actually days apart.

This thesis deals with the construction of conserved charges for asymptotically flat spacetimes at spatial infinity in four spacetime dimensions in a pedagogical way. It highlights the difficulties with understanding the gravitational duality...
