The Meaning of Relativity by Albert Einstein

Large book cover: The Meaning of Relativity

The Meaning of Relativity
by

Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN/ASIN: B006BASIFC
Number of pages: 134

Description:
A condensed unified presentation intended for one who has already gone through a standard text and digested the mechanics of tensor theory and the physical basis of relativity. Einstein's little book then serves as an excellent tying-together of loose ends and as a broad survey of the subject.

Book cover: A Theory of Gravitation in Flat Space-TimeA Theory of Gravitation in Flat Space-Time
by - Science Publishing Group
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.

Book cover: Observers and Splitting Structures in Relativistic ElectrodynamicsObservers and Splitting Structures in Relativistic Electrodynamics
by - arXiv
We introduce a relativistic splitting structure as a means to map equations of electromagnetism from curved four-dimensional space-time to 3-dimensional observer's space. We focus on mathematical structures that are motivated by the physical theory.
