The Age of Einstein
by Frank W. K. Firk
Publisher: Yale University 2003
Number of pages: 79
This brief book is for the inquisitive reader who wishes to gain an understanding of the immortal work of Einstein, the greatest scientist since Newton. The concepts that form the basis of Einstein’s Theory of Special Relativity are discussed at a level suitable for Seniors in High School. An introduction to Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity, a theory of space, time, and motion in the presence of gravity, is given at a popular level.

The main goal of this document is to propose a big picture of gravitation, where Einstein's relativity arises as a natural increment to Newton's theory. It is designed for students who do not necessarily have prior knowledge about relativity.

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.

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.

The book offers an alternative to Einstein's special theory of relativity, with the main purpose of developing a form of relativity, which can be combined with quantum mechanics and thus can open to a unified field theory.
