EINSTEIN: A Hundred Years of Relativity Albert Einstein's advances, made years ago this year, forever changed the way scientists view the universe. Robinson provides a comprehensive and unusual perspective on Einstein's scientific discoveries and personal life in this combination biography and collection of essays and photos. Two new books released today mark the centenary of Einstein's general theory of relativity, a revolutionary explanation of how gravity works that had far-reaching consequences. Not only did it. One of the main problems of theoretical physics concerns the unification of gravity with quantum theory. This monograph examines unification by means of the appropriate formulation of quantum gauge invariance. Topics include free fields, causal perturbation theory, spin-1 gauge theories involving both massless and massive gauge fields, spin-2 gauge theories, and non-geometric general. The best books of the 21st century who has been gone for three years. The story of her crossing to the US examines the blurring of boundaries, the commingling of Author: Guardian Staff.

Generalising Newton's law of gravitation, general relativity is one of the pillars of modern physics. On the occasion of general relativity's centennial, leading scientists in the different branches of gravitational research review the history and recent advances in the main fields of applications of the theory, which was referred to by Lev Landau as the most beautiful of/5(4).

“This is a well-written book, edited by Abhay Ashtekar to celebrate years of relativity. It is dedicated to describing how our understanding of space-time structure has evolved since Einstein's path-breaking paper on special relativity, and how it might further evolve in the next century, and contains, in three parts, contributions from leading researchers, worldwide, who have.
