The Meaning of Relativity: Four Lectures Delivered at Princeton University, May, 1921 Reviews
Like quantum theory everyone agrees on the mathematical equations of relativity, however there is wide disagreement on what it means physically especially among philosophers of science. Therefore, it is important to read Einstein's actual words on his own theory. The discovery of dark matter has raised some questions on whether Einstein's original theory is complete. Does it need some new like torsion field for example in addition to the curvature field. Then, there is the issue of quantum corrections. However, Reading Einstein himself is the best way to understand the physical meeting of the theories especially if you are an engineer or an experimental physicist.
Book was received but the binding is horrible. I was going to give the book to my son but the pages were falling out.
BEWARE!!!! This item is falsely represented as containing an inscription by Albert Einstein!!! The description currently being displayed with this item states:
This is an almost complete description of Einstein thoughts and motivations into special and general relativity along with some extra material about tensors and finally Einstein's thoughts on grand unification...
There is no better source that the Master himself. This is a wonderful little book in which Einstein supplies his own outlook on the theory which he created single-handedly. This is an essential read for anyone wanting to understand relativity. This book does not give a detailed treatment of the theory, but provides deep insights into its foundations and significance. Very strongly recommended.
If you want to understand this book, you had better understand tensor calculus or you will be lost. I had to purchase a book on tensor calculus to get through it. Be ready to struggle through the math, but it will be worth it since you will learn new ideas . Tensor calculus is not easy, but worth it. Relativity math is not easy.
