Number of pages: 92
Notes from the lectures by the author at the 7th Jerusalem Winter School 1990 on Quantum Cosmology and Baby Universes. The lectures covered quantum mechanics for closed systems like the universe, generalized quantum mechanics, time in quantum mechanics, the quantum mechanics spacetime, and practical quantum cosmology.

In this work the theory of gravitation in flat space-time is summarized. Most of the results of the theory of gravitation in flat space-time are compared with those of general relativity. We only give a small part of the experimental results.
This book examines the evolution of the principle of relativity in its classical, special, and general incarnations, with the aim of showing how it has repeatedly inspired advances in our understanding of the physical world.

This is an elementary introduction to the Theory of Relativity. The intended audience is a class of nonscience undergraduates. Our plan is to follow a pseudo-historical development of how we came to understand the spacetime of General Relativity.

A book for the inquisitive reader who wishes to understand the main ideas of special and general theory of relativity. Only a modest understanding of high school mathematics is required. A formal account of special relativity is given in an appendix.
