Basic Concepts in Relativity and Early Quantum Theory by Robert E. Resnick; David Halliday and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at Theory of Relativity. Later, Einstein was able to further develop this theory, leading to what is known as the General Theory of Relativity. Amongst other things, this latter theory is essentially a theory of gravitation. Relativity (both the Special and General theories), quantum mechanics, and thermodynamics areFile Size: KB.

Relativity and Quantum Physics for Beginners provides an entertaining perspective to many of the concepts that fueled the scientific revolution, while also theorizing that relativity and quantum physics were developed out of our need as a species to confront preconceived notions of the human experience. The page book was published in The older concept of relativity assumes that space and time are correctly measured separately and regards them as absolute and independent realities. The system of relativity and mechanics of Galileo and Newton is perfectly self-consistent, but the addition of Maxwell's theory of electricity and magnetism to the system leads to fundamental.

The general theory of relativity, together with the necessary parts of the theory of invariants, is dealt with in the author’s book Die Grundlagen der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie (The Foundations of the General Theory of Relativity) — Joh. Ambr. Barth, ; this book assumes some familiarity with the special theory of relativity. v. Basic concepts in relativity and early quantum theory.

It is a shame that this book is out of print. If you want to learn the special theory of relativity but can't or don't have the time to take a course in it, then this is a very good book to consult. Just about everything in here is easy to follow.

The first part of the book is devoted to special relativity, with a particular focus on space-time relativity and relativistic kinematics. The second part deals with Schrödinger's formulation of quantum mechanics. The presentation concerns mainly one-dimensional problems, but some three-dimensional examples are discussed in detail.

well, there are plenty of books to choose from. My personal favourites are that of schutz and narlikar. a thorough reading of “introduction to general theory of relativity - j v narlikar” will introduce one with the basic and fundamental concepts of gtr.

schutz should be read after narlikar. Einstein’s theory was based on two key principles: The principle of relativity: The laws of physics don’t change, even for objects moving in inertial (constant speed) frames of reference. The principle of the speed of light: The speed of light is the same for all observers, regardless of their motion relative to.

This particular book starts with basic concepts useful in physics and relativity. This is a ball. It has mass (physics concept). More and less (basics). Flat space (a grid) versus curved space (think a grid painted on a trampoline with a bowling ball rolling on it). A small ball curves it less.

A larger ball curves it more/5(). Introduction to the Basic Concepts of Modern Physics: Special Relativity, Quantum and Statistical Physics Carlo Maria Becchi, Massimo D'Elia This is the third edition of a well-received textbook on modern physics theory.

Introduction to the Basic Concepts of Modern Physics: Special Relativity, Quantum and Statistical Physics Carlo Maria Becchi, Massimo D’Elia (auth.) These notes are designed as a text book for a course on the Modern Physics Theory for undergraduate students.

A super-quick, super-painless guide to the theory that conquered the universe. For years, the general theory of relativity has been a pillar of modern physics.

The basic idea is so elegant that you don’t need superpowers to understand it. Begin with Isaac Newton’s first law of motion: An object remains in uniform motion unless acted on.

An accesible version of Einstein's masterpiece of theory, written by the genius himself According to Einstein himself, this book is intended "to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of/5.
